AACHEN, Germany, February 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

For the new CryptoServer LAN V4, Utimaco has dropped the HSM's operational
costs even further and made its servicing easier. To achieve this, the company
has given its flagship model a completely new housing design while leveraging
the same hardware and software. Thanks to the new design, the network
appliance can be serviced during operation from the front panel, which makes
it even more failsafe. At the same time, costs for sending in the appliance
and the subsequent downtime during scheduled servicing are eliminated.

Aachen, 02/24/2014 - The first manufacturer of hardware security modules to do
so, Utimaco has heralded the start of tool-free battery replacement. To date,
replacing batteries in HSMs has meant substantial organizational and financial
expenditure due to the need for special tools and the complicated replacement
process. Generally, the operator sends in the appliance, needing to bridge the
downtime and change internal workflows. "Our LAN appliances have featured a
redundant power supply system and expanded remote monitoring options ever
since the previous model. Important criteria for high availability and
reliability. So it is only logical that the next step would be in this
direction and also allowing the batteries to be replaced during operation via
a front panel," says Dieter Bong, Product Manager CryptoServer for Utimaco.

With the next-generation LAN V4, Utimaco is not only focusing on its end
customers, but also its partners. For the latter, a webinar on the topic of
LAN V4 is planned for February 14, 2014. "For our OEM partners, in particular,
the new design is a big plus. The improvement offers them even more
flexibility in light of service and branding thanks to the increased
independence from us as the appliance's original manufacturer," adds Matthias
Pankert, Vice President HSM for Utimaco.
