Payshield 10K

Designed specifically for payment applications — The payShield 10K HSM is the fifth generation of payment HSMs from Thales and designed with payment processing in mind. The payShield 10K provides cryptographic services for payment security including ATMs, transaction processing, card issuance, card processing, sensitive data protection, payment credential issuing, mobile card acceptance and payment tokenisation. FIPS 140-2 Level 3 (security sub-system) in progress, the payShield 10K features ready support for major payment processing applications coupled with maximum reliability and resilience.


  • Leverage Proven Integrations

    Our payment HSMs are the most widely deployed in the world and are supported by the largest number of payment application providers

  • Simplify deployment

    Our payment HSMs are capable of being securely configured, managed and monitored remotely from locations of convenience to reduce your costs and simplify your ongoing operations

  • Maximize Resilience

    Equipped with dual hot-swappable power supplies and fans, our latest HSMs significantly increase the mean time between failure (MTBF) and simplify field maintenance
