nShield Connect hardware security modules (HSMs) are certified, networked appliances that deliver cryptographic key services to applications distributed across servers and virtual machines.

Today more than ever, organizations have a need for high level security of their data and the keys that protect that data. The lifecycle of cryptographic keys also requires a high degree of management, thus automation of key lifecycle management is ideal for the majority of companies.

This is where Hardware Security Modules, or HSMs, come in. HSMs provide a dedicated, secure, tamper-resistant environment to protect cryptographic keys and data, and to automate the lifecycle of those same keys. nShield Connect HSMs are certified hardware security appliances that deliver cryptographic services to a variety of applications across the network. nShield HSM appliances are hardened, tamper-resistant platforms that perform such functions as encryption, digital signing, and key generation and protection. With their comprehensive capabilities, these HSMs can support an extensive range of applications, including certificate authorities, code signing and more.


Highly flexible architecture

Our unique Security World architecture lets you combine nShield HSM models to build a mixed estate that delivers flexible scalability and seamless failover and load balancing.

Process more data faster

nShield Connect HSMs support high transaction rates, making them ideal for environments where throughput is critical, such as enterprise, retail, and IoT.

Eliminate visits to the data center

nShield Remote Administration enables the secure remote presentation of authorization smart cards to remote HSMs to execute maintenance tasks including enrolling new HSMs and reassigning/ reconfiguring existing HSMs.

Protection of sensitive business and application logic

Execute code within nShield boundaries, protecting your applications and the data they process.
