SafeNet Unveils Next Generation Secure Platform for New PKI Applications and Virtual Environments


New Luna SA 5.0 Hardware Security Module Offers Increased Security and Up To Ten Times the Performance

BALTIMORE - SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in information security, today announced the availability of its Luna SA 5.0 Hardware Security Module (HSM) for next generation PKI, cloud and virtual environments. This next generation HSM offers significantly enhanced performance and ground breaking security as sensitive key material is embedded deeper into hardware leveraging SafeNet’s proprietary, tamper-proof ASIC cryptographic processor.

“Hardware Security Modules have traditionally been used by businesses to secure PKI, payments and transactions, said Eric Ouellet, vice president, secure business enablement, of Gartner, Inc. “As technologies are changing and organizations are starting to use virtualized and cloud environments, they must also ensure that their private information is protected. We foresee that businesses will use HSMs to protect the data with these new technologies.”

SafeNet’s Luna SA 5.0 HSM features true hardware-based key management within a highly partitioned platform, and now for the first time offers the same level of security and control as an in-house deployment by securing virtualized and cloud applications. SafeNet’s Luna HSM are widely used for securing the public key infrastructure powering eInvoicing, advanced metering infrastructure, secure manufacturing and other next generation PKI applications.

“Today more than ever our partners and customers are looking to build trust into their different applications by embedding digital signatures and key management into their next generation platforms” said Mark Yakabuski, director product management, SafeNet. “To meet these needs, SafeNet’s Luna SA 5.0 allows customers to meet more certification mandates with more performance and security than any other Hardware Security Module on the market – and it does it now in virtualized environments.”

The Luna SA 5.0 offers a high-availability and load-balancing mode that allows units to be grouped as a logical set, delivering the reliability and performance required in a highly virtualized infrastructure. With the new platform organizations can recognize lower operational costs in both traditional and virtualized environments through the remote management and administration functionality SafeNet is the industry leader in HSM expertise with nearly 100,000 HSMs deployed globally in more than 100 countries.
