nCipher Security delivers trust, integrity and control to business critical information and applications

Newly formed organization preserves competition and ensures continued innovation in general purpose HSM market

nCipher Security officially launched today, creating a new leader in the general purpose hardware security module (HSM) marketplace.

Today’s fast moving digital environment offers opportunities to enhance customer satisfaction, improve operational efficiency and gain competitive advantage, but in doing so also raises new security challenges. nCipher’s market-leading solutions and services allow organizations to keep pace with innovation while protecting their business critical assets from security breaches.

The world’s leading organizations have depended on nCipher nShield HSMs for more than 20 years to provide a root of trust for their business critical applications and meet their cybersecurity needs. Our customers include 5 of the top 10 Fortune 100 and 10 of the top 20 FTSE 100 companies.

Organizations are also now subject to an increasing number of strict compliance mandates such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Data Breach Notification Law and Australia Privacy Amendment Act 2017. nCipher provides the highest level of assurance in protecting sensitive data, enabling organizations to meet these very stringent compliance controls.

“I am both excited and proud to lead an innovative, agile, world-class team helping our customers as they embrace a digital future. nCipher nShield HSMs are a critical component in securing today’s business critical applications as well as the journey to the cloud, new digital payment methods and the internet of things,” said Cindy Provin, Chief Executive Officer, nCipher Security. “With high profile data breaches hitting the headlines daily and newly enforced legislation, organizations need to get security right.”

nCipher customers rely on nShield HSMs to provide a root of trust for a wide variety of business applications including public key infrastructures (PKIs), SSL/TLS encryption key protection, code signing, digital signing and blockchain. As growth in the Internet of Things (IoT) creates greater demand for device IDs and certificates, nShield HSMs will continue to support critical security measures such as device authentication using digital certificates.

nCipher highlights:

  •        World class, committed and experienced leadership team
  •        Exceptional technology supported by 32 patents
  •        700+ years of applied cryptography and security experience
  •        Strong third party certifications – FIPS 140-2, eIDAS, Common Criteria
  •        20-year heritage providing market-leading general purpose HSMs
  •        Strong installed customer base including 5 of the top 10 Fortune 100 and 10 of the top 20 FTSE 100
  •        Global network of strategic technology partners and distributors

nCipher Security is now a separate stand-alone business within Thales and held separate from the rest of the Thales Group pending its divestiture to a third party buyer. This results from Thales Group’s offer to acquire Gemalto and the demands of a number of antitrust agencies, including the European Commission, to create a strong player in the general purpose HSM space in order to preserve competition in this important market place and continued supply and innovations to our nShield customers. Thales and Gemalto continue to work constructively with the competent antitrust authorities to obtain the remaining merger control regulatory clearances in Russia and the United States. In addition, Thales and Gemalto are seeking regulatory clearance relating to foreign investments from the competent authority in Russia.

nCipher Security will be exhibiting at RSA Conference 2019 on booth #3106, to learn how our cryptographic solutions guard against today’s threats and attacks, enable compliance and protect your business applications.
