Utimaco, a worldwide leading manufacturer of hardware-based security solutions, is seeing growing enterprise and government demand for hardware security modules (HSM) to manage cryptographic keys and prevent third-party data breaches. Year-over-year growth reaches 75 percent in the U.S., four months after company expansion to North American market.

“Worldwide, the industry is in the middle of a significant overhaul of old production systems and processes,” said Malte Pollmann, CEO of Utimaco. “Data creation and permanently connected devices are creating net-new opportunities, but it’s also a source of concern due to hacker threats and the sheer magnitude of a potential breach. At Utimaco, we help customers every day who are turning to a hardware root of trust to find protection.
