Ultimaco Enhances Cryptoserver

Utimaco launches next generation of CryptoServer

LONDON and OBERURSEL, Germany -- Utimaco – The Data Security Company – has extended its hardware security module (HSM) portfolio with CryptoServer CS50. The high-end module powered by Gigahertz processor technology can process up to 11,000 encryption operations per second, a fivefold performance increase compared to the previous version. The new CryptoServer complies with the RoHS EU Directive (European Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) and is certified in accordance to the security standard FIPS 140-2.

The new generation of Utimaco Safeware’s hardware security module is designed to meet the stringent FIPS 140 Level 4, and the Common Criteria EAL 4 certification. It is also approved by the German central credit committee (ZKA). While the FIPS certification is much requested by international customers, in particular in the financial industry and US government agencies, the ZKA certificate is the security standard for the financial industries in Germany.

Other additions of CryptoServer include a faster random number generator, speeding up data processing especially in the area of bulk key generation, a new real time clock, and an additional flash memory.

“Information technology is the backbone of every business. With the forthcoming compliance requirements and privacy initiatives, the usage of hardware based security in electronic business processes is mandatory,” Andreas Philipp, deputy vice president of Utimaco said. “It is vital that companies use security products to be in line with international security regulations and to make sure their data processes are not interrupted by using poor and unstable security implementations.”
