Your keys in safe hands

Get your ideal HSM solution offering maximum efficiency and full control over costs

Progressive digitalisation brings with it increasing volumes of data that companies need to protect from loss or misuse. Data needs to be encrypted and the keys must be kept and managed safely. The larger the data volume, the more keys need to be generated and safeguarded and the greater the resulting burden of managing them safely. This task can be taken over by hardware security modules (HSMs).

HSMs are considered to be particular secure from manipulation. They offer secure cryptographic processes using random number generators to create keys, which they then also protect and manage. These keys can be used to encrypt and decrypt data and to create digital signatures and certificates. HSMs are useful everywhere – whether for protecting personal data, creating signatures for certificates or communication via the web portals of banks or authorities.

Our services – your success

achelos has comprehensive expertise when it comes to successfully using standard HSMs or customised certifiable HSM solutions to protect your data effectively.

Our customers enjoy maximum efficiency while retaining full control over costs thanks to an ideal combination of consultation, professional services and development and certification support.

Standard HSM solution

achelos supports you at every stage of your HSM project. The first stage is to define your requirements. At the analysis stage, we enlist your help in identifying which HSM solution is ideal for your particular application. In many cases, it will be possible to use a standard HSM solution from one of our established partners. We then integrate and develop applications, assist you with initial operation and offer support for day-to-day operation.  

HSM firmware development

In the event of particular requirements that are not covered by a standard HSM solution, we recommend adapting the firmware. In addition to the services which we offer in relation to development and initial operation of a standard HSM solution, we are also pleased to develop customer-specific HSM firmware for you. The team at achelos supports you with planning, architecture and software development, as well as with successful certification of the new firmware (PCI PTS HSM).
