Thales announces nShield XC, its next generation hardware security module (HSM) for application security. With accelerated crypto performance, Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) and CodeSafe application protection, nShield XC meets the increasing demands of customers as they deploy certified crypto to protect their data and applications.
Proven support for high volume Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and public cloud computing: crypto processing is essential in high volume crypto transaction environments. nShield XC builds on the legacy of previous models to support demanding credential issuance environments such as high tech device manufacturing and the public cloud.
Network-grade SSL/TLS: Performance is a constant concern in the networking world as is the need for seamless security. nShield XC brings turbo speed crypto processing for already proven integrations with Application Delivery Controller partners including Citrix and F5 Networks.
Unique custom application HSM hosting: nShield XC expands Thalesâ€™s unique CodeSafe feature, allowing customers to run larger and more powerful applications within the secure boundary of the HSM, helping them safeguard their most sensitive custom applications and the data they handle.
