Thales Named Finalists in Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards

Thales, leader in information systems and communications security, announces Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Thales payShield 9000 a finalist for the 2012 Global Excellence Awards in the Best Security Hardware Product category and Thales nShield Connect a finalist in the Encryption category. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping raise the bar for others in all areas of technology.

Thales payment hardware security modules (HSMs) protect more than 80% of the world’s card payments. payShield 9000 is the first payment HSM to meet the resilience needs of modern data centers with dual power supplies, and once installed can be managed entirely remotely reducing operational costs and the inconvenience of on-site management. Designed specifically to secure card and mobile payment systems, Thales’s next generation HSM for payment security systems is a high-performance tamper-resistant security platform that protects cryptographic keys and other sensitive information such as customer PINs and cardholder data. Its superior cryptographic processing at 1500 transactions per second (TPS) satisfies the ever increasing demand for performance, and its software packages are configured specifically for card issuers or transaction processors meaning they can purchase exactly what they require.

Thales nShield Connect enables enterprises to add hardened protection to critical applications such as public key infrastructures (PKIs), databases, web and application servers. Using standard cryptographic interfaces, nShield Connect integrates readily with Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services (PKI), Entrust Authority Security Manager, RSA Certificate Manager, Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, and many other applications, safeguarding the encryption and digital signing keys and processing sensitive data on the trusted appliance.

“We are proud to be recognized as an industry player with both payShield 9000 and nShield Connect being named finalist by Info Security Products Guide,” says Cindy Provin, President of the Americas, Thales e-Security. “For more than 40 years Thales has been at the forefront of security and payments technology, and our HSMs are the most widely certified in the industry. This recognition from Info Security Products Guide further demonstrates our commitment to delivering innovative and high quality security solutions to our customers.”
