Fornetix Announces OEM Agreement with Thales e-Security for Enhanced Security for KMIP Encryption Key Management

ASHBURN, Va., Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Fornetix announced an OEM Agreement with Thales, integrating the nShield HSM with Fornetix™ Key Orchestration™. 

The Key Orchestration Appliance is now commercially available, tightly integrating the nShield HSM directly in the Key Orchestration Appliance. The Key Orchestration Appliance delivers the unprecedented key management scale and automation capabilities of Key Orchestration in a highly-secured FIPS 140-2 Level 3 appliance.

"The integration of the nShield HSM with Key Orchestration software and hardware will allow customers to operate at the highest level of physical based security," said Peter Galvin, VP of Strategy at Thales e-Security.  "We are pleased that Fornetix selected the industry leading nShield HSM to integrate with their Key Orchestration Appliance to provide high assurance KMIP compliant key management.

"The Fornetix Team is very excited to be able to announce our OEM Agreement with Thales at RSA 2017," said Jack Wright, COO and Acting CEO of Fornetix. "In 2015 and 2016, and now in 2017, Key Orchestration has demonstrated a high level of compliance with the full spectrum of KMIP functionality. This commercial release of the Key Orchestration Appliance with the Shield KMIP compliant HSM is the culmination of many years' worth of dedicated effort to bring a higher level of cybersecurity to all legitimate enterprises at this critical time when cybersecurity is so much in question."

"The Fornetix team has focused consistently on standards-based encryption and encryption key management as a way to make encryption more affordable, as well as more secure and easier to manage," said Chuck White, CTO of Fornetix. "This fully integrated FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Appliance is a dramatic demonstration of the commercial power being made available by the OASIS KMIP standard." 

Jack Wright continued, "Our standards-based mission has been greatly assisted by the Key Management Interoperability Protocol as it has evolved over the years through KMIP 1.0 through 1.4.  In addition, Key Orchestration™ has been built using the powerful KMIP foundational software developed and provided by Cryptsoft."

Fornetix will be in the OASIS booth and independently exhibiting at the 2017 RSA Conference, South Expo booth # 2743, on February 13th through 17th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. 

"Our Mission is to protect and serve," said Jack Wright.
