Fortanix improves encryption ecosystem with new HSM to protect keys and data in security offerings

Fortanix Inc. announced Thursday that it has integrated its Self-Defending Key Management Service (SDKMS) with technology partners to offer Next-Generation Hardware Security Module (NGHSM) solutions for access management, data-at-rest encryption, payments and Internet of Things (IoT).

Fortanix’s SDKMS leverages runtime encryption and Intel SGX to deliver security for encryption keys and cryptographic services with software-defined simplicity. The solution offers flexible consumption models; a hardened appliance; and a SaaS service Equinix SmartKey, powered by Fortanix. The solution is architected to enable easy integration for new modern cloud applications, as well as existing applications with support for both RESTful APIs and traditional cryptographic interfaces including PKCS#11, JCE and CNG.

The Fortanix solution offers developer friendly APIs, accessible documentation and knowledge base on its website. Fortanix Runtime Encryption Slack community is a valuable resource for developers and partners leveraging Intel SGX or Fortanix solutions.

Enterprises can now implement SDKMS with a range of new interoperable security solutions. The Zettaset software-defined XCrypt Data Encryption Platform has been designed from the ground up for high performance, scalability and ease-of-use in virtual and physical environments. Combined with Fortanix SDKMS, the joint offering provides a comprehensive encryption solution that ensures the security and integrity of sensitive data and enables organizations to meet regulatory compliance requirements.

GEOBRIDGE’s KeyBRIDGE platform supports payments and technology manufacturers that realize the value of a centralized key management system that allows them to maintain their own proprietary key handling techniques, thereby eliminating the need for new development. Combined with SDKMS, the joint solution delivers root of trust and comprehensive audit logging to mitigate against insider threats or external attackers for sensitive transactions.

Fornetix Key Orchestration is an enterprise encryption key management solution that enables a unified approach to data security by deploying and enforcing encryption across an entire organization. The combined solution with SDKMS offers unprecedented key lifecycle management with critical security and privacy of keys with Runtime Encryption.

It also includes Vault, a centralized secrets management tool. Vault Enterprise takes the features of the Open Source tool and adds additional features for organizations requiring more collaboration and governance capabilities. For organizations with strict regulatory requirements of their cryptography keys, or looking for PKCS#11 backend, Vault Enterprise now offers support for Fortanix SDKMS.
