What is a Hardware Security Module?

A hardware security module (HSM) is a devoted cryptoprocessor that is specifically designed for the security of the crypto key lifecycle. Hardware security modules act as trust anchors that secure the cryptographic framework of some of the most security-conscious organizations in the world by securely managing, processing, and storing cryptographic keys inside a strengthened, tamper-resistant device.

Why Use Hardware Security Modules?

Companies purchase hardware security modules to secure transactions, identities, and applications, as HSMs excel at securing cryptographic keys and facilitating encryption, decryption, authentication, and digital signing services for a broad range of applications.

What Makes Efficient India the Best HSM Vendor?

Efficient India Hardware Security Modules provide the highest level of security by always storing cryptographic keys in hardware. Efficient India HSMs provide a secure crypto foundation as the keys never leave the intrusion-resistant, tamper-evident, FIPS-validated appliance. Since all cryptographic operations occur within the HSM, strong access controls prevent unauthorized users from accessing sensitive cryptographic material. Additionally, Efficient India also implements operations that make the categorization of secure HSMs as easy as possible, and our HSMs are integrated with Efficient India Crypto Command Center for quick and easy crypto resource segregating, broadcasting and observing.

Efficient India HSMs cohere to meticulous design requirements and must pass through severe product verification testing, followed by real-world application testing to verify the security and integrity of every device.

Efficient India HSMs are cloud agnostic, and are the HSM of choice for AWS and IBM, providing a “rentable” hardware security module (HSM) service that devotes a single-tenant appliance located in the cloud for customer cryptographic storage and processing needs.

With Efficient India Hardware Security Modules, You Can

  • Address compliance requirements with solutions for Blockchain, GDPR, IoT, paper-to-digital initiatives, PCI DSS, digital signatures, DNSSEC, hardware key storage, transactional acceleration, certificate signing, code or document signing, bulk key generation, data encryption, and many more.
  • Keys are originated, and always stored in the intrusion-resistant, tamper-evident, FIPS-validated appliance, providing the strongest levels of access controls.
  • Create partitions with a dedicated Security Office per partition, and segment through admin key separation.
