Trustis protects mobile and cloud services with Thales
June 2013 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Thales announces that its nShield hardware security modules (HSMs) are being used by Trustis, a provider of managed public key infrastructure (PKI) services and digital certificates, to provide strong authentication for mobile devices.
The Trustis Mobile Device Certificate Service (MDCS) provides on-demand digital certificates for public and private organizations that want to give their employees secure access to their networks via smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices, but lack the skill or resources to create a new PKI, or to upgrade an existing system to support the special certificates needed for mobile devices.
Trustis chose to build its MDCS solution with Thales nShield Connect hardware security modules (HSMs) to establish the high level of security assurance necessary for such a widely trusted service. The use of the nShield HSM not only allow Trustis to meet the exacting security standards of UK government classification, but also to achieve the reliability, scalability and high availability required of a cloud service for both public and private organisations.
