Meet compliance mandates and keep control of your data, wherever it resides.

When enterprise organizations need to run business-critical applications or store and access sensitive data, they often need rapid access to flexible and low-cost IT resources. However, migrating data and workloads to the cloud poses significant challenges for enterprises concerned with compliance, data sovereignty, and maintaining control of data.

Solve these challenges with a high assurance Hardware Security Module (HSM), a physical device with key management and key storage as a managed service.



Sensitive cryptographic keys prevent third-party access, helping to achieve corporate and regulatory compliance requirements.


Customer control

Customer-owned encryption ensures only you can access encryption keys for your company’s data in the cloud for complete control.


IBM Ecosystem

Organizations can use cryptographic resources stored in the highly secure IBM Cloud HSM for WebSphere— and more than 200 other IBM applications.

POWER8 bare metal servers provide the power you demand

Key security

Powered by a SafeNet Hardware Security Module from Gemalto, IBM Bluemix HSM offers enterprises high-assurance protection for encryption keys, ensuring your data stays protected wherever it resides.

IBM Bluemix HSM can be provisioned in any IBM Cloud data center, which allows users to build a highly available HSM. Get one of the industry’s lowest HSM prices without long-term contracts, plus universal pricing for every cloud data center.

One time initial startup fee of $5,000 and monthly costs starting at $1,200.


Compliance through customer control

Owning your encryption keys and controlling your data are crucial steps to meeting compliance standards, including PCI-DSS.

Dedicated hardware performance

Physical HSM appliances easily handle the resource-intensive tasks of cryptography processing and reduce latency to applications.

Scalable security

Partition your IBM Cloud HSM up to 100 times. One HSM can act as the root of trust that protects the cryptographic key lifecycle of hundreds of applications.

Secure management

Your IBM Cloud HSM is delivered in a factory state, so you’ll need to reset credentials during the first login. We’ll manage the IBM Cloud HSM without having access to your keys.
