Hardware Security Module (HSM)

With Fortanix FX2200 Series Hardware Security Module (HSM), businesses can implement Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM) to securely generate, store, and use cryptographic keys and certificates, as well as secrets, such as passwords, API keys, tokens, or any blob of data. 

HSM FX2200


Legacy HSM systems are hard to use and complex to manage. Today, large enterprises often have 2-3 different HSMs, key management, and encryption solutions each solving only part of the problem at a premium price with costly maintenance and additional costs for every new application. To add to the woes, these systems do not integrate with public cloud/hybrid infrastructures, requiring customers to maintain separate solutions for on-premises applications and public cloud.  Today’s already overburdened application teams, database administrators, data analysts, and security administrators don’t have time or patience to use outdated technology. 

Fortanix provides an integrated FIPS 140-2 level 3 HSM and also manages legacy HSMs making their keys manageable and accessible through Fortanix.

Lower cost while protecting investments

Fortanix enables customers to reduce the cost and complexity of their HSM infrastructure by consolidating all HSMs into a single cost-effective solution. Over time customers can migrate keys and replace HSM hardware with a modern scalable solution.

Accelerate Cloud Migration

Move between on-premises and public cloud with a single set of cryptographic services and controls. Fortanix HSM Gateway, an extension to the Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM) , connects to the legacy HSMs you already. Fortanix HSM Gateway provides a consistent set of unified APIs and services across all your on-prem, hybrid and cloud applications. The keys stay secure in the existing HSM, while applications and databases (on-premises or in the cloud) get a single source of cryptographic services, and security teams get a single pane of glass to manage and audit.

Accelerate Cloud Migration

Easy to Use Single Solution

Fortanix provides a “single pane of glass” modern, multi-tenant, and intuitive user interfaces for simplified administration and increased control, including extensive logging and auditing across your entire infrastructure.

quote iconThere is sensitive data stored in our systems, whether its consumer data, sales data, or corporate secrets. This data has to be protected but we had a challenge. How exactly? How do you protect the keys? In a large organization, we want to avoid the situation where teams and stakeholders that decide how to protect data and keys differently. So, we decided to provide a key management system and HSM as one of the security services to the rest of the organization.
