nCipher nShield HSM Solutions
nCipher Security’s nShield Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are hardened, tamper-resistant devices that protect your company’s most sensitive data. These FIPS 140-2 certified modules perform cryptographic functions such as generating, managing and storing encryption and signing keys, as well as executing sensitive functions within their protected boundaries.
nShield HSMs help you to:
- Achieve higher levels of data security and trust
- Meet and exceed important regulatory standards
- Maintain high service levels and business agility
Which nShield models are available?
- nShield Connect – network attached appliances
- nShield Edge – portable USB-based modules
- nShield Solo – PCIe cards for embedding in appliances or servers
Certification to Industry Standards
Recognized globally, FIPS 140-2 is a U.S. government NIST standard that validates the security robustness of cryptographic modules. All nCipher nShield HSMs are certified to FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Level 3 and are available for purchase at either level.
Common Criteria and EIDAS Compliance
nShield Solo+ and Connect+ models are certified to Common Criteria (EAL) 4+ and are also recognized as qualified signature creation devices (QSCDs). As QSCDs, nShield HSMs are qualified to serve as the security backbone of European digital signature (eIDAS) and other globally recognized solutions including authentication services, digital signing and time stamping.
nShield as a Service
The solution delivers the same features and functionality as on-premise HSMs combined with the benefits of a cloud service deployment. This allows customers to fulfill their cloud objectives and leave the maintenance of these appliances to nCipher and its Partners.
nShield Remote Administration
Many organisations find it impractical to physically access their remote HSMs for routine management tasks.
nShield Remote Administration lets you manage your HSMs—including adding applications, upgrading firmware, checking status, and more—from your office location, whenever you choose. This means less travel to data centres, helping you cut costs and optimise your resources.
