Prime Factors offers the first look at its new HSM Surveyor application for visualization of hardware security module performance and available capacity.

Prime Factors' HSM Surveyor gives data centers the means to monitor hardware security module use

HSM Surveyor

Hitting a [hardware security module] capacity limit unexpectedly causes bottlenecks for card issuers and increases response times."

Enterprise data centers that rely on hardware security modules have the first opportunity to see Prime Factors' new HSM Surveyor in a live webinar on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, at 1 PM Central. The webinar will offer the first look at the new application for instantaneous visualization of hardware security module performance and available capacity. Those interested may reserve attendance by registering for this online demonstration at,

"HSM Surveyor takes the guesswork out of managing HSMs," says Prime Factors' Vice President, Jeff Cherrington. "The credit card brands imminent counterfeit card liability shift urges card issuers to migrate to EMV smart cards. Personalizing those cards, as well as processing their authorization requests, requires increased volume through hardware security modules. Hitting a capacity limit unexpectedly causes bottlenecks for card issuers and increases response times."

The application is the first to collect performance data from the cryptographic appliances and provide instantaneous graphical views of their performance, individually or as pools. Any enterprise with HSMs must be continuously aware of both the historical and current availability of their HSM estate. Continuous monitoring of HSM performance helps prevent costly interruptions to business enterprises and provides a valuable data source for analysis, problem diagnosis and capacity planning.

Prime Factors' Senior Solution Architect, Mary Still, will demonstrate the new HSM Surveyor capacity visualization tool during the live webinar, as well as respond to questions about its intent, design, and operation during the webinar. Those interested are encouraged to register now.

HSM Surveyor is immediately available to monitor activity of Thales eSecurity® payShield® 9000 HSMs, integral to payment card issuance and transaction processing. Prime Factors will expand the range of HSMs supported in subsequent releases. For more information, see, contact the company at info(at)primefactors(dot)com, or by calling (888) 963-6358.
