Cloud adoption, the growing use of mobile devices for authenticating payments, and IoT use cases are fuelling the adoption of HSMs.
Modern Hardware Security Modules Address Complexity
Emerging cloud adoption requirements, the growing use of mobile devices for authenticating payments and emerging internet of things (IoT) use cases are fueling adoption of hardware security modules (HSMs). These hardened devices are designed to securely store and manage digital keys and perform encryption processing. But they are also often a source of frustration because they are viewed as highly complex devices that require highly skilled personnel to manage.
As more enterprises accelerate digital transformation across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, HSMs are increasingly becoming a wholistic platform supporting a variety of emerging use cases where encryption and public key infrastructure operations are required to protect sensitive information.
