Organizations today struggle with the operational complexity, high cost, and technical incompatibilities of integrating Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) into evolving, cloud-based data security infrastructures.

Fortanix allows organizations to modernize their legacy HSM infrastructure with unified, scalable, secure, and cloud-first data security.

The Challenge

Organizations that have mature data security implementations are often stuck with legacy HSMs, which are complex to install, replace, and operate. Their origins go way back, and the archaic design has not seen much innovation from established vendors. These properties contradict the needs of modern organizations, which now expect flexible security solutions to support DevOps-driven automation initiatives. We are now in a cloud-first world, where SaaS solutions provide operational benefits such as seamless scalability, simple upgrade procedures, and ease of use.    

Fortanix Solution

Fortanix modernizes your HSM infrastructure by seamlessly consolidating your legacy HSMs and enabling secure key access for workloads anywhere; on-premises, or in the cloud.
With Fortanix DSM and the HSM gateway, your keys stay secure in your existing HSMs, while your encryption key infrastructure is ready to support cloud-first initiatives. The Fortanix DSM platform is available as a SaaS, so it can be deployed in minutes, versus months for legacy HSMs. With Fortanix, your organization is immediately ready to accelerate cloud initiatives, without the need to rip-and-replace the expensive legacy HSMs you’ve already invested in.
Fortanix HSMs are FIPS 140-2 level 3 validated and available as a service.

Unified, top-grade data security 

The Fortanix DSM platform unifies data security solutions such as HSM services, a Key Management Service (KMS), tokenization, and secrets management. The service is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated and is supplemented by the power of Intel SGX technology to protect data in use. Organizations can separately store cloud encryption keys from their sensitive data, wherever that data resides. Fortanix complies with rigid security standards such as FIPS 140-2, ISO 27001:2013, PCI-DSS, CIS, and SOC 2 certifications.
