Datasheet - PDF

SafeNet ProtectServer External

Cost-Effective, Tamper Resistant HSM


High Assurance Security

SafeNet ProtectServer External contains a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated cryptographic module to perform secure cryptographic processing in a high-assurance fashion.  Built for industry standard security applications, the ProtectServer External functions within a tamper-protected environment, providing secure storage for highly sensitive information, cryptographic keys, PINs, and data.

Easy Integration and Management

SafeNet ProtectServer External provides secure, easy-to-perform local and remote management of administration functions.  The intuitive GUI plus remote access delivers administration convenience and reduces cost and time to implementation.

High Performance

ProtectServer External features  processing speeds up to 600 RSA signature operations/sec.  By offloading cryptographic processing from the host system, ProtectServer External is available to respond to increased requests, improving performance. 

Customizable and Scalable

ProtectServer External is available in a broad range of symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic performance levels, and can be integrated on either the same or distinct sub-nets and be shared between different networks in order to protect multiple business domains.  In addition, a broad range of APIs are available, making ProtectServer External highly customizable.
