Utimaco and SecuEra Technologies Join Forces

Collaboration Between Hardware Security Module & Identity Security Integrator Builds a Trusted Ecosystem

LOS GATOS, Calif. & VIENNA, Va.—April 16, 2015—Utimaco, a worldwide leading manufacturer of hardware-based security solutions and SecuEra Technologies, a global security integrator, announced today a joint alliance to protect leading organizations’ most sensitive and valuable information that demands the highest levels of security.

In today’s fully connected world, security threats continue to evolve, requiring organizations to apply advanced defenses. Utimaco’s scalable and customizable Hardware Security Module (HSM) serves as the cornerstone of trust for hardened encryption within industries including: automotive, big data, smart energy and payment solutions. SecuEra’s digital identity and access management (IAM) solutions authenticate users within government, enterprise and healthcare. By combining an HSM with IAM, joint customers can now deploy end-to-end security solutions that are modular, flexible, future-proof and cost effective.

“Compared to software solutions, hardware-based security offers unprecedented data protection. As breaches and threat of attack increase, we find that more and more organizations are coming to us to harden security, but are also concerned about access and privacy,” said Malte Pollmann, CEO of Utimaco. “Most organizations think there is a trade-off between security and privacy, but with a strong hardware root of trust supporting digital identity solutions, suddenly secure access and privacy is possible across multiple platforms, including cloud and mobile applications.”

By matching authentication levels based on risk, SecuEra Technologies provides Public Key Infrastructures (PKI) and Non-PKI credentialing to both people and devices, enabling organizations to comply with government regulations and enterprise mandates that build a trusted ecosystem across communication points. SecuEra also makes credentialing simple and secure for mobile identity management and data protection to prevent unauthorized access, and provide data and device protection.

“The right security solutions need to be tailored to our clients. It won’t be available as an average retail product within the mainstream market,” said Gurpreet Manes, CEO of SecuEra Technologies. “SecuEra has spent years creating flexible platforms that are customizable and permit rapid integration and migration anywhere in the world for any type of unified identity credentialing and authentication need. The benefits to our customers are increased security and compliance while decreasing risks and costs.”

Utimaco’s SafeGuard CryptoServers are FIPS 140-2 Level 4 and Common Criteria EAL4+ certified, providing tamper-proof physical protection, critical reliability and performance for sensitive cryptographic keys. Together, Utimaco and SecuEra enable organizations to protect electronic transactions and their reputation, as well as comply with their Security Standards.

Utimaco will be demonstrating how the technologies work together at the 2015 RSA Conference on April 20-24 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. To schedule a meeting or private demonstration, please email: utimaco@mslgroup.com.
