General Purpose Hardware

SOLO
The Thales nShield Solo/Edge/Connect are hardware security modules (HSM) that isolates and secures cryptographic operations and associated keys for an organization’s most critical applications. This hardened, tamper-resistant PCIe card performs encryption, digital signing and key management on behalf of an extensive range of commercial and custom-built applications including public key infrastructures (PKIs), identity management systems, application-level encryption and tokenization, SSL/TLS and code signing. A high assurance alternative to software-based cryptography libraries, nShield Solo+ features certified implementations of all leading algorithms, as well as the world’s fastest ECC performance.

Key Benefits

  • Automates burdensome and risk-prone administrative tasks, guarantees key recovery, and eliminates single points of failure and expensive, manually-intensive backup processes
  • Establishes strong separation of duties and dual controls through robust administration policies including role-based multi-factor authentication and flexible quorum-based authorization
  • Enables secure execution of custom security-critical application code within the tamper-resistant hardware boundary

EDGE
The Thales nShield Edge is a full-featured hardware security module (HSM) that isolates and secures cryptographic operations and associated keys for critical applications.  Designed for low transaction volume environments, this USB-connected device performs encryption, digital signing and key management on behalf of an extensive range of commercial and custom-built applications including offline certificate authorities (CAs) and code signing. A high assurance alternative to software-based cryptography libraries, nShield Edge features certified implementations of all leading algorithms.

Key Benefits

  • Automates burdensome and risk-prone administrative tasks, guarantees key recovery, and eliminates single points of failure and expensive, manually-intensive backup processes
  • Establishes strong separation of duties and dual controls through robust administration policies including role-based multi-factor authentication and flexible quorum-based authorization
  • Provides a secure and cost-effective solution with unmatched operational flexibility for laptops and virtual machines

CONNECT
The Thales nShield Connect+ is a hardware security module (HSM) that isolates and secures cryptographic operations and associated keys for an organization’s most critical applications. This hardened, tamper-resistant platform performs encryption, digital signing and key management on behalf of an extensive range of commercial and custom-built applications including public key infrastructures (PKIs), identity management systems, application-level encryption and tokenization, SSL/TLS and code signing.  A high assurance alternative to software-based cryptography libraries, nShield Connect+ features certified implementations of all leading algorithms, as well as the world’s fastest ECC performance.
