AACHEN, Germany, November 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Utimaco is the world's first company to present an OEM program for HSMs - at CARTES in Paris, from November 6 to 8, 2012, Hall 4 at Stand M062
At CARTES 2012, Utimaco Software AG and its partners are presenting innovative solutions for hardware security modules (HSM) as anchors of trust. In addition to eID and payment, cloud applications are the focus of this year's exhibition, with special emphasis on data protection and compliance for business solutions.
Utimaco's HSMs form the foundation for numerous innovations requiring the highest security standards. Particularly in the cloud there is the need to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access, while ensuring scalability, reliability and high availability at the same time.
In line with Utimaco's theme "As unique as you are", the HSMs are so flexible that they make nearly every cloud application significantly more secure, which is achieved by leveraging applied cryptography. "Data protection and compliance are key needs, next to cloud business solutions. With our HSMs as an anchor of trust, we and our partner In-Webo are together showing cloud-based authorization solutions at CARTES 2012," proudly reports JÃ¶rn Horn, Business Development Manager HSM for Utimaco.
The France-based specialists for authorization have remained true to their vision of a cloud-based authorization platform - and thus developed a solution using Utimaco HSMs which allows a central security criterion, such as authorization, to be outsourced to the in-house IT department without any worries. Because the platform is in the cloud, it is not only flexible but also lowers both investment as well as operational costs while simultaneously guaranteeing compliance. Thanks to the use of HSMs, the platform can verify its own integrity and is immune against external attacks. "Among HSM providers, only Utimaco's products are able to run our audited authorization algorithm and meet the strictest high availability requirements at the same time," says Didier Perrot, CEO for In-Webo.
As par for the course at Utimaco, the company's own engineers were able to actively support the development of In-Webo's platform within the framework of the comprehensive partner program. "Depending on the level of partnership, our partner can rely on a customized level of support by Utimaco," says BjÃ¶rn Jansen, Partner Manager HSM for Utimaco.
Based on years of experience in the support of individual projects, such as that from In-Webo, Utimaco is now going a step further when it comes to customization. As the first manufacturer in the HSM market, Utimaco offers an OEM program which enables providers of all-in-one solutions to create tailor-made solutions with HSMs.
At CARTES 2012, Utimaco is presenting its new OEM program, which specifically encompasses the following four modules:
- Product: The broad and proven product range of SafeGuard CryptoServer with its entire scope - from a "legacy" HSM solution to a software development kit.
- Consulting: A comprehensive consulting module with which the clients can draw on more than 30 years of experience in integration.
- Logistics: Adaptable global logistics processes.
- Support: A custom support package tailored to clients' requirements - from assistance with software development for HSMs to support during malfunctions.
