Amazon Web Services Offers Dedicated Hardware Security Appliances

Amazon Web Services introduced "CloudHSM," a new service offering dedicated Hardware Security Module (HSM) appliances within the AWS Cloud. 



The CloudHSM service, which is aimed at companies data security compliance requirements,  allows customers to securely generate, store and manage cryptographic keys used for data encryption in a way that keys are accessible only by the customer.
Previously, contractual or regulatory mandates for managing cryptographic keys prevented some organizations from migrating their most sensitive data to the cloud.
AWS said its CloudHSM service enables customers maintain full ownership, control and access to keys and sensitive data while Amazon manages the HSM appliances in close proximity to their applications and data for maximum performance.
