Thales, leader in critical information systems and cybersecurity, announces nShield XC, its next generation hardware security module (HSM) for application security. With accelerated crypto performance, best-in-class Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) and unique CodeSafe application protection, nShield XC meets the increasing demands of customers as they deploy certified crypto to protect their data and applications.
Cindy Provin, president Thales e-Security Inc., says:
“As organizations deploy more cryptography, in more places, they need to be sure that their cryptographic resources can handle the demands and don’t create bottlenecks. The nShield XC offers higher performance to support high volumes of cryptographic transactions providing the trust that protects the cryptographic infrastructure. As organizations, leverage big data or cloud services and implement public key infrastructure in support of the internet of things, trust and control are of paramount importance and need to be delivered on a large scale. We are very pleased to be launching the nShield XC in response to the increasing requirements of our customers.”
David Monahan, senior analyst, Enterprise Management Associates, says:
“Companies need hardened security solutions that deliver a strong root of trust as the foundation for enterprise class data protection in their security and risk management programs. These solutions must meet operational demands in maintaining remote management, high levels of performance and reliability, and address critical needs such as key management at scale, across multiple data centers and cloud providers. With the continued explosion of sensitive data across connected devices, organizations failing to do so will fall behind and may ultimately fail."
Marissa Schmidt, director of product management, NetScaler at Citrix, says:
“The integration of Citrix NetScaler with Thales nShield provides our mutual customers with technology to enhance security while offering a secure and cost-effective solution for SSL key management. Citrix customers increasingly demand high performance solutions that provide robust levels of protection for cryptographic keys. We welcome Thales’s next generation nShield XC to continue to meet these needs.”
Jon Kuhn, Senior Director, Product Management, F5, says:
“F5 and Thales customers are demanding high-performance solutions that provide flexibility as they redesign their environments to neutralize evolving threats around SSL/TLS—whether that means providing support for the newest ciphers, enhancing key management, or improving IPS and DLP service scalability. With the companies’ long-time partnership, joint customers are well positioned to take advantage of the new nShield XC platform to address increasingly sophisticated security demands.”
