Frequently Asked Questions

What is an enterprise payment HSM?

An enterprise payment HSM is a cryptographic device that performs cryptographic operations within a physically secure environment. Enterprise payment HSMs are used to encrypt payment transactions and manage payment keys in high-throughput environments. The descriptor “enterprise” refers to the demanding environments where they are deployed. The fast and powerful Excrypt SSP Enterprise v.2 HSMs work in any enterprise IT infrastructure and are highly customizable for different use cases.

How much processing power will we need?

Transaction processing throughput is measured in transactions per second (TPS). Your organization’s TPS depends on your operation’s scale, how many customers and partners you’re serving, and existing infrastructure. Enterprise organizations tend to need faster processing speeds that balance immanent needs with anticipated future demands. The Excrypt SSP Enterprise v.2 offers ultimate scalability when it comes to cryptographic functionality and processing speed, able to go from a few hundred TPS up to tens of thousands with a simple request.

What makes the Excrypt SSP Enterprise v.2 an “enterprise” HSM?

Scalability and customization are what defines an enterprise-class HSM. Aside from sheer processing power, which reaches upwards of 50,000 TPS, Futurex’s enterprise-grade HSMs can serve multiple applications at the same time with application partitioning. The number of application partitions extends into the hundreds, for unsurpassed scalability. As far as customization goes, the Excrypt SSP Enterprise v.2 includes custom command line interfaces (CLIs) and client libraries. These tools open up scripting and automation capabilities, organizing complicated operations into a single command.

What is HSM virtualization?

HSM virtualization refers to an HSM’s ability to create and run virtual instances of itself. This effectively multiplies the number of HSMs a user has access to, allowing them to dedicate virtual HSMs to different transaction processing environments, use cases, or business units. Each virtual HSM is truly independent, with unique firmware versions, users, security policies, and storage space. In short, HSM virtualization allows users to deploy multiple HSMs within a single device.
