Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG: New white paper: Highest data protection with the FP Secure Gateway from Francotyp-Postalia


Cyber attacks cause annual losses of 55 billion euros to the German
economy alone. The FP Secure Gateway from Francotyp-Postalia (FP)
provides reliable protection for data transfer to cloud services. In its
newly published white paper, FP explains the functionality and
advantages of the hardware security module for industrial Internet of
Things applications.

Cyber attacks are on the rise worldwide. Last year, for example, the
ransomware WannaCry caused significant damage to numerous companies
around the globe and only recently unknown hackers tried to penetrate
the networks of large German energy providers. This shows that companies
must constantly expect to become victims of a cyber attack, which in the
worst case will cause great financial damage.

Professional data encryption with the Francotyp-Postalia hardware
security module

Whether spyware, Trojans or ransomware - cyber attacks are usually aimed
at gaining possession of confidential data. The spotlight of late has
fallen increasingly on the Internet of Things (IoT). Professional
encryption is required to protect the data transfer of industrial plants
and equipment that are connected to each other via a cloud service.
Francotyp-Postalia (FP), the expert in secure mailing business and
secure digital communication processes, provides reliable protection
with its FP Secure Gateway.

The hardware security module (HSM) ensures a high level of data transfer
security through strong encryption. This is carried out through the use
of passwords and encryption algorithms generated within the device. Even
in the event of an intrusion from outside, whether digital or physical,
the data is protected because the FP Secure Gateway automatically
deletes the stored keys. In this way it meets the requirements for level
3 FIPS140-2 device certification.

"The topic of security has a very high degree of relevance, which is
constantly increasing, for all areas of the economy. We are one of the
pioneers in the field of secure data transfer. Because, for more than
ten years, we have been transferring data from machines with
hardware-based security to the cloud and are able to control it
centrally," explains Rüdiger Andreas Günther, CEO of FP. "Our core
competencies in sensor systems, actuating elements, connectivity and
cryptography form the foundation of our FP Secure Gateways. With them,
we are opening the door to the Internet of Things for industrial
