Utimaco Safeware AG showcases at this year's CARTES in Paris from November 6th - 8th in Hall 4 / M062

Utimaco Safeware AG presents itself under the headline "Uniqueness" on this year's CARTES, the leading smart technology event for security, payment, identification and mobility. Themed "As unique as you are," Utimaco's experts and the experts from their partners show visitors how they can customize the hardware security modules (HSMs) for any kind of need.

This year, Utimaco's presentation has its focus on eID, payment and cloud applications and is thus responding to the increased demand and the great need for advice in these growth industries.

"It is widely known that the increasing demand for eID, payment and cloud applications entails an increase in security solutions. With our fully FIPS 3 and 4 certified product portfolio, we offer our clients the necessary anchor of trust so that their sensitive data are fully secured and cannot fall into wrong hands by any chance," states Andreas Philipp, Head of Sales CryptoServer at Utimaco and goes on explaining: "Our hardware security solutions are as unique as our clients - we find the right solution for any need, be it regarding the level of security, the performance, the support model or the options for integration into an existing IT environment.

Particularly for responding to security demands within national eID applications, Utimaco developed the "Deutschland HSM". Next to its FIPS certification, it fulfills also the particularly strict security requirements of the Common Criteria certification according to EAL 4+ which makes it a world-wide usable HSM for all kinds of eID applications.

In the context of eID solutions, Utimaco's partners PrimeKey and Achelos are especially noteworthy. They are presenting their package solutions for eID applications on a joint stand with Utimaco next to In-Webo, the third partner of them. "Our business model is much focused on our partner business and we are proud to showcase together with our strong partners PrimeKey, Achelos and In-Webo for eID, PKI and authentication solutions," says Björn Jansen, Partner Manager SafeGuard CryptoServer at Utimaco.

Today, product providers set their focus more and more on customization of integrated security solutions. With the introduction of its OEM program on this year's CARTES, Utimaco backs up its market leading position and is worldwide the first in the hardware security market to offer an OEM program to providers of complete-product-solutions. The program builds on Utimaco's wide product portfolio and its comprehensive services so that their clients can develop their own solution with it.

With the aid of innovative 3D projections, visitors can experience how Utimaco's HSMs can be used for eID applications and they can assure themselves personally from the performance of Utimaco's products as well as that of their partners solutions.
