Fortanix Partners With F5 to Deliver Cloud-Scale HSM and Advanced Encryption Key Management for BIG-IP and NGINX Customers
Mutual Customers Have New Secure, Scalable, High-Performance Key Management Solutions Available for SSL and TLS Encryption
Fortanix Inc., the Runtime Encryption company, announced it has partnered with F5 to deliver cloud-scale hardware security module (HSM) and advanced key management service (KMS) capabilities for BIG-IP and NGINX customers. With the company’s growing portfolio of FIPS-compliant offerings, F5 customers can now leverage the Fortanix Self-Defending Key Management Service for FIPS 140-2 level 3 security to protect encryption keys, securely migrate to the cloud, and scale to meet their cloud-scale performance requirements.
“Key Management Services and Hardware Security Modules are critical components of managing, securing, and scaling TLS encryption,” said Frank Strobel, Director, Cybersecurity Alliances at F5. “A KMS/HSM solution needs to be cloud-agnostic, secure, scalable, and available to handle crypto operations offloaded from web applications deployed on a variety of platforms across the globe.”
The Fortanix solutions for BIG-IP and NGINX each deliver a cloud-scale data security platform that provides cryptographic services, shared secrets, and tokenization across cloud and on-premises environments from a single centralized point of management, control and audit. With this partnership, F5 customers benefit from a single integrated HSM and KMS platform across BIG-IP or NGINX deployment architectures to ensure that cryptographic operations are secure, provide optimal performance, and scale to execute cryptographic operations across on-premises, hybrid cloud and public cloud deployments.
