AACHEN, Germany – August 2018 – Utimaco, the world’s second largest manufacturer of Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) that provide the Root of Trust to many industries, and Mexico-based cybersecurity specialist, CEGA Security, today announced an alliance to deliver certified training for Utimaco solutions in Latin America – first of its kind in the region. This latest development in the partnership will make Utimaco’s Hardware Security Modules and CEGA Security’s Training, Technical Support and Professional Services available to Value-Added Resellers and System Integrators throughout Latin America.
As businesses and public-sector organizations across the region seek to meet fiscal regulations as well as enhanced cybersecurity compliance mandates, the use of Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) is expected to become more prevalent. Electronic invoicing and digital signatures are some of the business drivers leading to the wider adoption of HSMs, specifically in Mexico and Latin America.
“CEGA Security believes in offering only top of the line products matched with high-value services to satisfy the specific needs of our customers. That’s why we chose to offer Utimaco’s HSM as a part of our robust security solutions to share with our customers across Latin America”, said Xaviero Cervera, CEO at CEGA Security. “We see the need for cryptography in certain highly-regulated industries and look forward to arming those organizations with the highest level of security with the help of Utimaco HSMs. The SecurityServer Hardware Security Modules provide our customers the flexibility to begin with entry level solutions and scale their signing operations to over ten million of transactions per month.”
Talking about LATAM trends Xaviero revealed: “During 2018 and 2019 we will see a rise in countries that implement e-invoicing and digital signatures as new legislation in each country urges the use of digital identities. In addition we have seen a surge in security requirements due to recent breach of the financial system in Mexico and Chile which provides an important opportunitiy for hardware based encryption to deliver evermore secure transactions.
“We are very excited to join forces with CEGA Security and allow easier access to our technology throughout Latin America”, said Eric Tocatlian, VP of Global Sales at Utimaco. “Through this partnership, we are for the first time providing businesses and governments across the region, the opportunity to invest in our best in class HSMs and access an array of professional services, delivered in both Spanish and English.”
