Solution Brief

IBM and nCipher enable enterprise-wide encryption for data at rest

IBM Key Lifecycle Management (SKLM) platform integrates with nCipher nShield Connect hardware security modules (HSMs) to ensures that master keys used to protect native keys used by the self-encrypting devices are always given the highest level of protection. Certified to FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL4+, nCipher nShield Connect HSMs establish enforceable key use policies and a root of trust for the protection of underpinning keys. The combined solution can be deployed on-premises or as a service.
