VirtuCrypt Cloud Payment HSM

On-demand financial issuing and acquiring

Scalable and compliant cloud cryptography

Cloud payment HSM solutions for the payments industry

The payments industry uses cloud payment HSMs to secure transactions, protect account data, and authenticate payment devices. Futurex offers its solution suite of payment HSMs over the Futurex VirtuCrypt cloud to meet these needs. A cloud payment HSM gives you the same security and functionality as an on-premises HSM but is more cost-effective and quicker to deploy.

VirtuCrypt cloud hsm
Public cloud integration

Integrate VirtuCrypt cloud solutions with major cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Instant scalability

Leverage the power of cloud performance with automated deployment, high availability clusters, and on-demand HSM provisioning.

Standalone cloud HSMs

Use the Futurex VirtuCrypt Cloud HSM service to deploy virtual HSMs with their own major keys, users, and throughput (TPS) allocation.

Why move to VirtuCrypt cloud HSM solutions?

You can configure our extensive financial payments HSMs to fit your organization’s needs. Rather than a template to which you must conform, it’s a blank canvas on which you can design your ideal infrastructure.

  • Deploy groups of HSMs as a complete infrastructure
  • Spin up single HSMs and integrate them into existing infrastructure
  • License individual functions of HSMs to resolve specific use cases

Payment application migration

Cloud payment HSMs enable organizations to fully migrate payment apps to the cloud. This is perfect for organizations that need a multi-cloud strategy.

"Build your own" HSMs in the cloud

The VirtuCrypt cloud gives you unlimited configuration options. Increase system redundancy, back up and clone cloud HSMs, or spin up individual cryptographic functions.

Lower total cost of ownership (TCO)

By using the Futurex Crypto as a Service (CaaS) model, you can lower the overall TCO of your enterprise security ecosystem.

Reduce scope of compliance

With cloud HSMs, you can host enterprise applications and support HSMs in the cloud with no direct Internet routing. All while maintaining enterprise-level security and reduced compliance scope.

Cloud payment HSM architecture

Deploy cloud-based Futurex hardware security modules (HSMs) using our VirtuCrypt cloud service. We base our cloud payment HSMs on physical hosts. They offer the same financial issuing and financial acquiring functionality but with the added flexibility and cost-effectiveness of the cloud.

Using the VirtuCrypt cloud, you can deploy a complete cryptographic infrastructure or deploy specific functions to address individual use cases. Do it all with the market-leading Futurex FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and PCI HSM-validated technology.

Direct integration with other services and applications housed outside the public cloud itself is an increasingly popular choice for public cloud usage. Cloud Payment HSMs offer direct integration with public clouds, so you can provision services rapidly through the public cloud marketplace.

Build your own cloud HSM

Choose service models based on functionality, throughput, and redundancy. Through the VirtuCrypt cloud, you gain unlimited options for customization.

Validated and compliant

Futurex VirtuCrypt Cloud HSMs comply with all industry standards, such as PCI HSM, HIPPA, SSAE 16, TIA-942. They are certified under FIPS 140-2 Level 3.

Multi-cloud strategy

Enable a single cloud HSM estate to connect with multiple applications through multiple public cloud regions simultaneously using the VirtuCrypt Intelligence Portal (VIP).

High availability & disaster recovery

Easily create multiple instances of cloud HSMs to ensure high availability and disaster recovery. You can also automate cloud HSMs as a failover mechanism.

Bring your own keys

Administrators can securely load major keys into Cloud HSMs by using several methods, including bring your own key (BYOK), key agent services, and HSM-generated keys.

Cloud-based testing and development

You can do development and proof-of-concept testing without ever stepping inside a data center, ending challenges associated with managing evaluation hardware.
