Fortanix earlier this year launched a new channel-friendly appliance for
SDKMS, the FX2200 appliance node. Together with the Fortanix-powered
hardware security module (HSM)-as-a-service offering, the solutions
enable channel partners to meet their customers' unique needs for data
protection in hybrid environments and multiple clouds with
next-generation HSM designed for the cloud era. Traditional HSM
solutions are difficult to integrate and operate reliably, even for the
most sophisticated organizations. Fortanix SDKMS is simple to set up and
maintain, freeing partners to focus on becoming trusted security
advisors by creating solutions for customers to drive business value and
mitigate security risk.

"The growing Fortanix Channel Program offers partners strong incentives
with attractive margins, deal registration, and protection including
expansionary and renewal incumbency," said Ambuj Kumar, co-founder and
CEO of Fortanix. "Fortanix is the world's first solution delivering
Runtime Encryption technology to enable general-purpose computation on
encrypted data without exposing sensitive information. We have witnessed
impressive growth in our channel program and channel-enabled sales since
our announcement of the FX2200 appliance node."
