Physically back up Futurex devices with the USB Backup HSM

The USB Backup HSM allows you to physically secure and store multiple hardware security module and Base Architecture Model device backups. Secured with a passcode number pad, the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated USB device can be directly connected to Futurex devices or remotely connected through the Excrypt Touch.

Double-encrypted for unparalleled security

When you are responsible for cryptographic infrastructure, taking regular backups is important, but ensuring those backups are secure is critical. The layered encryption of Futurex's USB Backup HSM, using both source and USB HSM keys, gives you confidence that you're doing everything possible to protect your organization's most critical assets.

Additional benefits
