German HSM Manufacturer Utimaco Provides the Anchor of Trust for PrimeKey's Revolutionary, Ready-to-use PKI Appliance

AACHEN, Germany, and SAN FRANCISCO, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Visit Utimaco Safeware AG next week at PrimeKey's booth #459 during the RSA Conference in San Francisco "Made in Germany" stands for sophisticated engineering that is robust and flawless. Values which naturally also ring true for hardware security modules (HSMs) from Utimaco, the European leader in tamper-responsive HSMs. Utimaco's SafeGuard CryptoServer portfolio is fully certified to FIPS 140, level 3 or 4, and therefore meets the highest level of security in the market.


Driven by its quest for product quality, PrimeKey Solutions AB (PrimeKey) chose to bring Utimaco into the product development team for the PrimeKey PKI appliance. The clincher for PrimeKey, however, is Utimaco's deep industry know-how paired with exceptional commitment and a hands-on, problem-solving mentality. Utimaco integrates its HSMs as OEM-ware into partner solutions or as standard products within joint projects. "We are delighted that we were able to win over Utimaco as an extraordinary partner. They helped craft our PrimeKey PKI appliance with their commitment and expertise, leading to a whole new product type on the crypto market," says Admir Abdurahmanovic, VP and co-founder at PrimeKey.

At this year's RSA Conference, PrimeKey is launching its new ground-breaking PKI appliance, which combines the security, reliability, trust and deployment of PKI in one hardware device. It sets up a complete private key infrastructure (PKI) with no installation and no configuration necessary. While PrimeKey is the visionary mastermind behind this crypto appliance, a collaborative partnership resulted in its ultimate realization. PrimeKey's two long-time partners, C2 Company from San Mateo, California, and Utimaco Safeware AG from Germany, joined forces for the project.

The trust provider for the PKI appliance is Utimaco, whose tamper-responsive HSMs are at the heart of PrimeKey's product. The engineers neatly integrated the HSM into the appliance to deliver a robust architecture and sleek processing performance. C2 Company is in charge of deployment, which comprises devising and integrating the unique security policy, the adaptation to PKI systems as well as rollout and operation mode.

Because the PrimeKey PKI appliance is set up in a snap, it provides rapid deployment and low maintenance costs. It makes PKI even interesting for smaller companies who require thorough key protection for their sensitive data, but who have never been able to master the integration process before. The ease of use on the client side is achieved by teaming up highly sophisticated crypto technology with unparalleled industry know-how.

Visit Utimaco Safeware AG during this year's RSA Conference in San Francisco, from February 25 to March 1, at booth #459 - and discover how Utimaco, together with PrimeKey Solutions AB, can help you make your vision of security a reality.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
