What payShield HSMs Do

payShield hardware security modules (HSMs) are used throughout the global payment ecosystem by issuers, service providers, acquirers, processors and payment networks. They play a fundamental role in securing payment credential issuing, user authentication, card authentication and sensitive data protection for both face-to-face and digital remote payments. The cryptographic needs of all major payments applications for contact chip, contactless chip, mobile secure elements and host card emulation applications are supported to address the evolving security standards from organizations including EMVCo, PCI SSC and GlobalPlatform as part of broader security audit compliance requirements.
