AWS CloudHSM is a cloud-based hardware security module (HSM) that enables you to easily generate and use your own encryption keys on the AWS Cloud. With CloudHSM, you can manage your own encryption keys using FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated HSMs. CloudHSM offers you the flexibility to integrate with your applications using industry-standard APIs, such as PKCS#11, Java Cryptography Extensions (JCE), and Microsoft CryptoNG (CNG) libraries.
CloudHSM is standards-compliant and enables you to export all of your keys to most other commercially-available HSMs, subject to your configurations. It is a fully-managed service that automates time-consuming administrative tasks for you, such as hardware provisioning, software patching, high-availability, and backups. CloudHSM also enables you to scale quickly by adding and removing HSM capacity on-demand, with no up-front costs.
The Vectera Series combines the best of both general-purpose and financial purpose data processing. Comprised of the Vectera Plus and Vectera Galaxy, the series brings FIPS 140-2 Level 3-validated technology to general purpose cryptography, ensuring security at a level reserved for the most sensitive data. The benefits of this multi-functional hardware are manifold: reduced up-front capital expenditure, lower overhead costs for maintenance, simplicity of training, and reduced time expenditures.
AWS CloudHSM is ranked 5th in General Purpose HSM while Futurex Vectera is ranked 6th in General Purpose HSM. AWS CloudHSM is rated 0.0, while Futurex Vectera is rated 0.0. On the other hand, AWS CloudHSM is most compared with Thales SafeNet Luna HSM, nCipher nShield General Purpose HSM, Yubico YubiHSM and Azure Dedicated HSM, whereas Futurex Vectera is most compared with nCipher nShield General Purpose HSM and Utimaco SecurityServer.
