Managing the Enterprise HSM Estate
The capabilities of HSM Surveyor are managed by a security scheme where users are authenticated and provided access rights by specific function. Product Administration capabilities are presented to authorized Administrators through an intuitive menu and address:
• User identities, authorities and access security levels
- Validation of authorized user IP addresses
- Logical path to data storage
- Description of each HSM in the HSM Estate
- Individual or group reporting on HSMs
HSM health and summary data is collected and retained within the Data Collection Server for subsequent reporting. The frequency of data collection is user defined and can be scheduled for automatic review of the HSM’s health status, resulting in proactive alerts of exceptional conditions.
