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
