Thales ProtectServer 3 HSMs Now Available

Thales has completed the release of the Thales ProtectServer 3 HSM family, with an emphasis on improved security and performance.

ProtectServer 3 HSMs are available in three different models:

  • ProtectServer 3 Network HSMs
    • ProtectServer 3+ External HSM – security hardened network attached HSM providing highly secure key protection and flexibility, plus dual swappable AC power supplies for business continuity
    • ProtectServer 3 External HSM – same features and functionality provided by ProtectServer 3+ HSM, less the dual power supplies
  • ProtectServer 3 PCIe HSM – tamper-protected PCIe x4-compliant hardware for server systems and applications

Product Highlights

ProtectServer 3 HSM family is ideally suited for niche markets such as payment related opportunities, and use cases that require custom or complex crypto. Highlights include:

DevOps Friendly

  • Program custom commands, algorithms and mechanisms within the secure confines of the HSM with Functionality Modules (FMs)
  • Test and debug applications and firmware with the software emulator – developer friendly, flexible development tools
  • Shorten development cycles with extensive API’s and the SDK

High Assurance Protection

  • Ensure the highest security and compliance, always protecting encryption keys in FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated, tamper-evident hardware (FIPS pending)
  • Benefit from additional physical tamper-evident features

 Performance

  • Improve performance with up to 3,500 RSA-1024 tps, 10,600 AES-GCM tps
  • Meet the performance and security needs of emerging technologies such as blockchain
  • Benefit from resiliency, high availability and crypto isolation with 4 x 1 Gb Ethernet ports with bonding capabilities (PSE 3+)

Ease of use

  • View configuration and status information with the new LCD screen
  • Easy migration of key material and FMs from ProtectServer 2 HSMs
