Product Feature Hot in Demand: Security-and With Utimaco’s OEM Program, Integrating Crypto Technology Into Your Own Proprietary Products is a Cinch
AACHEN, Germany, November 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Utimaco is demonstrating the full development environment for its HSMs-at CARTES in
Paris from November 19 to 21
While the use of hardware as OEM products is part of everyday business, hardware
security modules (HSMs) have rarely or not at all been used as OEM components to date. And
this despite the fact that encryption and digital signatures are becoming more and more
important for many application in various vertical market segments. Utimaco now markets
its HSMs as tailor-made OEM components, as well as provides consulting, support, and
logistics-features that are normally not standard on the OEM market.
“We understand that the effective use of HSMs as OEM components is just one of four
areas that our customers have to consider,” explains Horst Kruse, OEM Program Manager at
Utimaco. “At the same time, every company and every instance of application is so unique
that we have decided to offer our OEM Program with four modules, which can be combined to
meet the customer’s precise needs. The modules cover the areas Product, Consulting,
Support, and Logistics.”
The integration of crypto technology requires a slew of know-how, which Utimaco’s
engineers deliver through consulting and individual training on demand. Support for the
HSMs, too, has to be provided to the end customer, which, without a Service Level
Agreement, can become an unpredictable challenge for many companies. Last but not least,
logistics requires special attention due to the international export controls that HSMs
have to undergo.
This year at CARTES, Utimaco is demonstrating a full development environment for its
CryptoServer and which runs entirely within its HSMs-thus giving interested customers of
OEM components deep insights into the adaptability and performance of its CryptoServer.
“Of course, the CARTES trade fair gives visitors first and foremost the chance to come
into contact with experts. But at our stand, they can also literally grasp our crypto
technology. This enables us to turn the abstract idea of encryption into something
tangible and transparent, particularly for newcomers to the sector,” emphasizes Andreas
Philipp, Head of Sales CryptoServer. To support this even further, Utimaco is also
leveraging CARTES to launch its own English-language blog focusing on everything centered
around HSM technology: http://www.community.utimaco-service.com. The blog is
specifically aimed at users of hardware security modules-whether beginners or experts.
