Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are like bank lockers that safeguard your valuables. They’re enterprise staple for storing sensitive information and to execute secure cryptographic operations. Primarily, deployed on-prem, legacy HSMs require complex deployment, frequent maintenance, and upgrades—run by staffs with advanced cybersecurity skillsets.

But what leaves them obsolete in today’s cloud-first world is their legacy APIs based approach, with limited integration capabilities into cloud and business critical applications.
