Hardened Security for General Purpose Applications

The Vectera Series combines the best of both general-purpose and financial purpose data processing. Comprised of the Vectera Plus and Vectera Galaxy, the series brings FIPS 140-2 Level 3-validated technology to general purpose cryptography, ensuring security at a level reserved for the most sensitive data. The benefits of this multi-functional hardware are manifold: reduced up-front capital expenditure, lower overhead costs for maintenance, simplicity of training, and reduced time expenditures.

Suited for General Purpose and Financial Industries

The vendors in the market for hardware security modules typically separate financial units and general purpose units. Futurex sees no reason to follow this precedent because cryptographic algorithms are applicable to numerous industries and numerous devices. All devices in the series combine industry-leading speeds and the world's most advanced encryption algorithms to be labeled Secure Cryptographic Devices (SCD). From securing databases to protecting emails or encrypting sensitive medical files in compliance with HIPAA, the Vectera Series fills incredible varied roles across innumerable industries.

Secure Code Environment

A unique feature shared among Vectera Series HSMs is their secure application boundary dubbed the Secure Code Environment. It's a powerful, versatile, and extensible tool for organizations wishing to extend the command set to support proprietary or environment-specific functionality with custom code, applications, and API extensions. Organizations can incorporate the Excrypt API to leverage the built-in cryptographic functionality of the Vectera Series HSMs. The Secure Code Environment guards their own applications, affording an easy method through which organizations can increase the return on investment for their hardware security module infrastructure.
