Futurex Data Centers Now in Every Corner of the World
When it comes to cryptographic automation, speed, latency, and data residency, Futurex has you covered no matter where you do business. As part of this effort, we are expanding our global footprint with data centers for Futurex’s VirtuCrypt cloud hardware security module (HSM) and key management service now located in every corner of the world.
“We are building on our lead in the marketplace by delivering the first truly global cloud hardware security module offering in the industry today,” stated Ryan Smith, Vice President, Global Business Development, at Futurex.
To meet the growing demand for critical cryptographic requirements, we are expanding our cryptographic processing capability with five new sites, to bring Futurex’s VirtuCrypt services to 13 data center locations worldwide:
- U.S. Central
- U.S. West
- Canada East
- Canada West
- The Netherlands
- India West
- India Central
Worldwide Data Centers Give Organizations a Boost
Strategically located data centers give enterprises and financial services a competitive boost in a number of important ways:
- Lower latency
- Meet regional data residency requirements
- Faster transaction processing speed
- Fulfill compliance mandates including PCI PIN, PCI P2PE, and PCI DSS
- Provide solutions to enable fault tolerance and fail-safe backup
Cryptography Requirements: Fast and Always Available
Cryptographic processing needs to be fast and always available. A high level of processing capability, with low latency, allows organizations to run computationally and cryptographically intense applications at faster processing speeds. Futurex payment HSMs represent some of the most advanced and scalable financial processing technology available today, able to process up to 25,000 transactions per second (TPS).
“Our HSM services around the world ensure fast cryptographic processing and that data residency requirements can be met — a critical component of region-specific privacy and security regulations,” added Smith.
Customers now have more options for configuring redundancy and for eliminating single points of failure. Whether you’re a Fortune 500 company or an up-and-coming neobank, your core cryptographic infrastructure must be secure, scalable, compliant, and highly available. Futurex allows organizations to create hardened, high-performance transaction processing solutions that can be fully located in the cloud, or that extend your on-premises infrastructure.
As organizations are moving financial processing and many other workloads to the cloud and taking advantage of cloud-based HSM solutions, our native integration with public clouds such as AWS and Azure are what gives organizations an unprecedented degree of agility and flexibility when it comes to developing new services.
“We offer a truly scalable and integrated financial cloud offering that includes the ability to easily spin up HSMs as needed for different types of projects, integration with multiple cloud providers, and compliantly deploying client connections using crypto tunnels — all without waiting weeks or months,” says David Close, Chief Solutions Architect, at Futurex.

A robust cloud infrastructure is what’s opening the door to a host of new and exciting service offerings, writes Adam Cason, Futurex’s vice president, global strategic partners and alliances, in a recent article, Exploring the Next Generation of Cryptography to Enable Innovation.
Our proven track record of securing massive volumes of sensitive data, including significant portions of the world’s payment transactions, on a daily basis speaks for itself. Our additional data centers worldwide make it easier and faster than ever to do the things you need to do, securely, and reliably.
