Adfinis & BKB

On the lookout for a partner, Adfinis caught the attention of the BKB, and as the first and only HashiCorp Enterprise Partner in Switzerland with an office in Basel, the choice was an easy one. By means of a PoC and various workshops, Adfinis was able to set up a tailor-made solution for BKB, that also takes the existing Hardware Security Module (HSM) into account.  


The introduction of HashiCorp Vault Enterprise is a decisive step towards automating the infrastructure while at the same time meeting the security requirements. Thanks to HashiCorp Vault BKB is well equipped to face the demanding requirements of Finma, Swift and Co.
