Cryptographic keys provide the foundation for strong cryptography and the subsequent security of applications and associated data. Managing an increasing number of cryptographic keys across business applications is becoming evermore challenging, whereas manual, decentralized processes are costly and error prone, and demonstrating compliance is time consuming.
Cryptomathic's CKMS is a centralized key management system that delivers automated key updates and distribution to a broad range of applications. CKMS supports robust business processes and allows you to confidently comply with and pass internal & external audits.Take control and achieve compliance with centralized and automated application key management.
The top three challenges of key management are frequently cited as: lack of clear ownership of processes; lack of skilled personnel and the existence of isolated and fragmented systems.
CKMS directly addresses all of these. It enforces specific roles and clear responsibilities for sets of keys; it frees staff from mechanical, repetitive tasks and allows them to concentrate on policy decisions; it can orchestrate the delivery of keys between disparate systems supporting standard key formats.
Protecting your business processes from internal and external attack requires the strongest protection for the roots-of-trust that underpin them. Demonstrating compliance with standards like PCI-DSS and GDPR is non-negotiable for many enterprises.
CKMS allows you to stay competitive by improving business efficiency, while reducing costs and risk.

The Crypto Key Management System was first deployed at a customer in 1998 to centrally manage keys throughout its entire payment network.
CKMS is now used by major organizations and financial services companies worldwide to centrally control and automate the life cycle of millions of keys. Cryptomathic's key management customers include First Data, Infineon Technologies, MasterCard, SwedBank and Visa.
Combining CKMS with the Crypto Service Gateway (CSG) offers a complete infrastructure for total control of all key management, crypto usage and policy functions for any application.
At the leading edge of security provision within its key markets, Cryptomathic closely supports its global customer base with many multinationals as longstanding clients.
