November 5, 2018 – This strategic acquisition positions Utimaco as the second-largest hardware security module (HSM) manufacturer in the world and creates the most comprehensive HSM offering on the market. The Atalla line of HSMs acquired from Micro Focus further strengthens Utimaco’s position in the payment and banking industry as banks and financial services look to embrace innovative, secure solutions.
Together with Atalla, Utimaco’s Information Security Business includes:
“Utimaco provides customers a certified Root-of-Trust for their IoT applications, which we now combine with Atalla´s expertise and strong innovation for our future payments roadmap,” said Utimaco CEO, Malte Pollmann. “The closing of this acquisition shows our commitment to a joint vision for General Purpose and Payments HSMs, our continued integration with existing customer systems and optimizing their cost of ownership. We welcome the Atalla team to Utimaco and look forward to working with them on the future of best-in-breed, crypto-agile information security platforms.”
