Entrust has extended the presence of its nShield as a service hardware security module (HSM) offering with the opening of new data centres in Germany and plans to expand in the Asia Pacific region.
The identity management security software and services provider said the launch of these data centres will enable customers to address regional data sovereignty requirements while utilising its cloud HSM offering.
“Today’s enterprises are moving more of their core business applications to the cloud,” said Cindy Provin, senior VP and GM for digital identity and data security at Entrust. “The expansion of nShield as a service into new data centres facilitates geo-fencing to help meet cloud data security, data sovereignty mandates and regulatory compliance.”
The use of multiple locations also helps clients meet high-availability and disaster recovery requirements.
Initially launched in 2019 with data centres in the UK and the US, Entrust says its nShield cloud HSM offering provides integration with applications and cloud services to support several use cases including protecting certificates, PKI, and databases among others.
“The expansion of nShield as a service, which is part of an Entrust global outreach, addresses the security needs of cloud markets worldwide,” added Provin. “The new data centre locations will also enable Entrust to expand its other cloud-based service offerings across the regions.”
Entrust says it plans and launch more data centres in Australia early next year.
