» Vault Enterprise & AWS CloudHSM help strengthen organizational security.

A strong data security architecture is paramount for organizations of all sizes, but sometime there is a greater security need at the hardware layer. Applications may have contractual or regulatory mandates for digital key management or authentication. To help meet these mandates AWS offers CloudHSM, a dedicated Hardware Security Module that operates within the AWS Cloud. CloudHSM helps protect valuable secrets, but how do organizations then manage the access to those secrets? HashiCorp’s Vault Enterprise is a trusted secrets management tool designed to enable collaboration and governance across organizations.
