Why data security as a service

HSMs are historically deployed in organization’s data centers​. Encryption keys are stored in the HSM​ and cryptographic operations are securely executed within the module​. Organizations don’t have the expertise or time to manage and do not want to deal with the infrastructure operations of an on-prem HSM deployment. Data security as a service can help simplify operations and reduce management overhead.

What DSM SaaSDoes

what we do
FIPS 140-2 level 3 HSM
FIPS 140-2 level 3 Next generation HSM at a click of a button. The service can be accessed publicly via the cloud.
what we do
Centralized monitoring and management
DSM SaaS provides control of and visibility into your key management operations using a centralized web-based UI with enterprise-level access controls and single sign-on support. Your business-critical applications and containers can integrate using traditional cryptographic interfaces (PKCS#11, KMIP and more) or its native RESTful interface.
what we do
Integrated data security platform
Cloud-friendly encryption, key management, and tokenization​ from a single integrated platform provides comprehensive data security.


Uniform security across clouds
Different encryption tools for each cloud increases complexity and risk. DSM SaaS is a single platform to manage keys across multicloud environments. The platform offers HSM-grade key storage, accessibility, and Bring your own key (BYOK) support. Only authorized users can access the keys offering enhanced privacy to help defend against malicious insider threats.
Easy to use, developer-friendly service
The service supports same APIs and cloud services that DevOps teams use today. Powerful RESTful APIs make it easy for developer and DevOps teams to use and integrate data security into their applications.
Highly resilient, distributed architecture with maximum availability
Platform supports a multiple cluster architecture. For each cluster (Americas, EU, UK .etc) there are 3 physically isolated data centres to improve availability and reduce latency within the geo. Keys are replicated automatically to eliminate a single point of failure and intelligent load-balancing service automatically accesses the nearest key management service.
Simplify operations and ensure ease of management
Unlike, on-prem appliances, HSM as a service simplifies operations, ensures ease of management without concern for HSM appliance selection, management, and provisioning.
