Hardware Security Modules (HSMs)

Hardware security modules (HSMs) from Thales e-Security provide a secure, tamper-resistant environment for secure cryptographic processing and management, key protection, and key management. These units can provide a high level of assurance that satisfy current and future standards for cryptographic systems and practices—this can all be done while ensuring a high level of efficiency. Thales HSMs can be used with a broad range of commercial software solutions and in-house or custom systems. For effectively any system that uses cryptography in the form of encryption and digital signatures, PKI, etc., using a Thales HSM will ensure you are able to overcome the security risks and performance challenges that are usually associated with software-only cryptography and key management. With HSMs from Thales and services from MiSEC, you buy the capacity that your business requires, and can scale your infrastructure as your requirements evolve and expand.

Identity Management Products

Whether your concern is credit card payment processing, online banking, or internal business applications, the ability to manage user identities and effectively control access to data and applications is a critical aspect of securing the enterprise. Rising use of web-based applications and mobile devices, organizations distributed across multiple locations, and ever-shifting policies and employee populations can pose significant challenges even for the most conscientious administrators. Beyond employees, businesses must manage identities of partners, suppliers, and customers who use their systems. MiSEC offers products from the Thales range that support strong user authentication and consistent management of user identities for both internal and external applications—including payments. Using these products, organizations can implement higher levels of assurance and at the same time streamline and standardize infrastructure and processes for identity management without adding complexity.
