What Is Remote HSM Management?

Remote hardware security module (HSM) management enables security teams to perform tasks linked to key and device management from a central remote location, avoiding the need to travel to the data center. A remote HSM management solution delivers operational cost savings in addition to making the task of managing HSMs more flexible and on-demand.

Depending on the HSM solution used, remote HSM management enables:

  • Greater, more flexible control
  • Strong access control based on digital credentials rather than physical keys
  • Stronger audit controls from tracking activities to individual card credentials
  • Quicker identification of remote HSM status issues
  • Simpler software and license upgrade installation
  • Reduced risk of errors
  • Simplified logistics
