Security and encryption firm Thales has announced two new security hardware platforms aimed at smaller businesses.
The nShield Connect 500 and 1500 modules bolt onto the network to protect cryptographic keys and perform encryption and digital signing.
"The introduction of the entire family of nShield Connect hardware security modules raises the bar in meeting customer demand for scalable, high-performance and resilient key management infrastructures," said Franck Greverie, managing director for information systems security at Thales.
"By introducing nShield Connect 500 and 1500 to our product portfolio, we are demonstrating our market leadership, offering dual hot-swappable power supplies as standard in our entry-level products, recognising that business continuity is a critical factor for all of our clients.
"The nShield Connect portfolio offers our customers an easy and scalable upgrade path from our net HSM family."
The Thales nShield Connect 6000 series is configured for 100 users, but the new systems protect 10 and 20 terminals at a time, and the systems are interoperable.
