Utimaco is the First Manufacturer to Lower Total Cost of Ownership for Hardware Security Modules Via Comprehensive Remote Monitoring

AACHEN, Germany, November 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Utimaco releases software updates for SafeGuard CryptoServer LAN and SafeGuard SecurityServer

Hardware security modules (HSMs) are usually leveraged in data centers, which, for the most part, are equipped with standard servers. These standard servers are normally monitored completely through remote monitoring systems. However, the latest HSMs available on the market either do not support remote monitoring at all or very little. At the same time, the operator is faced with high personnel costs for administration, which is also prone to errors due to a lack of automation options.  

With today's software update, the SafeGuard CryptoServer LAN V4, Utimaco is offering the only 19-inch hardware security module on the market to feature comprehensive and automatable monitoring functionalities. This lowers the need for personnel and saves costs, while boosting efficiency at the same time. The CryptoServer LAN V4 not only supports the reading of numerous system parameters, such as temperature, fan speed, and status of redundant power supply thanks to the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), it also supports spontaneous messages (SNMP traps) when one of these parameters ventures outside of the defined tolerance range. As a result, operators can virtually rule out system failures and loss of data. "With the CryptoServer LAN V4, we are lowering the TCO of our HSMs significantly", explains Andreas Philipp, Head of Sales CrytoServer, adding: "Security today also means reliability of the leveraged devices in terms of their availability. Thanks to our latest updates, we are boosting the already high availability of our products even further."

Likewise, operators of SafeGuard SecurityServer's new 3.01 software version can expect a lower TCO thanks to the easier and more secure use of the administration tool. "Ninety percent of our customers administer the SecurityServer using the graphics-based CAT administration tool, which was developed particularly for those users who do not administer HSMs on a daily basis. To make administration more intuitive and thus cost-effective, we have completely reworked the CAT user interface. The flow of individual steps is now more intuitive than ever and the interface has been slimmed down", explains Dieter Bong, Product Manager CryptoServer. The aim was to enable new and inexperienced users to be able to better handle the interface. The command-line interface csadm can also boast similar changes - the integrated help system has been reworked and expanded.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API.
