fortanix cyberark


The partnership forged between Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM) and CyberArk PAM solutions, leverages runtime encryption™ and Intel® SGX in a FIPS-compliant HSM to maximize the security and availability of encryption keys used to access safes or files within the CyberArk solution to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical enterprise data.

The Challenge

Insider threats remain the single most challenging entity to defend against when it comes to thwarting cybersecurity concerns, and unauthorized access to cryptographic keys remains the most widely used tactic by threat actors. Businesses need cryptography to secure their data and HSMs to secure their cryptography.

How the Joint Solution Works

The integration between Fortanix Data Security Manager and CyberArk PAM delivers enhanced security and availability for encryption keys used to access safes or files within the CyberArk solution to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical enterprise data.

Fortanix Data Security Manager leverages Runtime Encryption™ and Intel® SGX in a FIPS 140-2 L3 compliant HSM to deliver deterministic security for encryption keys. The Fortanix HSMs are based on a multiple-cluster SaaS architecture. Each cluster resides in separate data centres to support a high-availability architecture and minimize latency. Keys are replicated automatically to eliminate a single point of failure and intelligent load-balancing service automatically accesses the nearest key management service.


FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Compliant HSMs

Tamper-resistant with high assurance, superior performance and certified to the rigorous FIPS 140-2 level 3 cryptography standard.

Simplified Operations

The joint solution requires minimal setup, minimal expertise to operate, and can integrate with your existing systems.

Lower TCO

Using HSMs/KMS with your PKI will prevent key compromise issues that lead to expensive fines and remediation costs.

High Availability and Security

The joint solution is an HSM-backed PKI management system that is highly available, secure, and has disaster recovery capabilities.

Specific Compliance Control

FIPS certified HSM and Key management with regional level isolation helps meet specific data privacy regulations.
