Increased application security & control with IBM Cloud HSM 7.0

It’s here and ready for your use – today, we’re excited to announce the global availability of our next generation Hardware Security Module (HSM) – IBM Cloud HSM 7.0 – providing high-assurance key generation, protection and storage.

Based on the latest Gemalto’™ SafeNet HSM technology, IBM Cloud HSM is a dedicated, single-tenant hardware appliance that safeguards and manages sensitive digital cryptographic key information by storing, protecting and managing cryptographic keys in a hardened FIPS-validated, private-network-attached appliance.

To put it simply, IBM Cloud HSM gives you enterprise-strength access controls for today’s security-critical applications. These critical appliances protect the cryptographic infrastructure of some of the most security-conscious organizations in the world by securely managing processing.

Enterprises today also rely on HSM’s for securing and provisioning encryption, decryption, authentication and digital signing services for a wide range of applications, including Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), database encryption and SSL/TLS for web servers. Your business can solve complex security, compliance and data sovereignty challenges associated with migrating and running workloads on the cloud.

The integration of IBM Cloud HSM 7.0 including SafeNet Luna Network HSM A750 enables superior performance by running over 20,000 ECC and 10,000 RSA operations per second (3X to 5X faster than previous HSM releases)[1]. And with dual, hot-swappable power supplies and clustering for high availability and backup, there’s always consistent performance with no downtime and guaranteed business continuity. In addition, IBM Cloud HSM is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified, so you can be assured you’re getting a secure, third-party validated solution.

Finally, this new solution is attached to IBM’s global private network that offers no-cost, secure network access to 60 IBM data centers around the world. All in all, IBM Cloud HSM 7.0 is the perfect general purpose network solution for your enterprise applications.
