Monitoring Solution

Cardtek Monitoring Solution is designed to optimize the operational work load across multiple data centers by serving as a central location to provide instant insight with improved quality and simplicity.

Banks use different brand, different model Hardware Security Modules (HSM) with different management interfaces for different objectives, in different locations. That hybrid structure makes it difficult to detect and respond to existing problems, analyze problem history and monitor and manage these different HSMs. Cardtek HSM Monitoring Solution manages enlarged HSM pools in a controllable fashion.

Cardtek HSM Monitoring Solution creates distinct profiles (e.g. Administrator, Operator, Monitor-only), users and user groups and assigns roles to users. Users can view system level alerts and events and define the time period for more detailed analysis according to their requirements. Alarms and reporting can be received via e-mail by assigned groups that are created according to the error type. The systems enables configurable inquiry polling times.
