payShield 9000 – Withdrawal announcement
The payShield 9000 will officially be withdrawn of the payShield 9000 family of hardware security modules, together with the associated software, accessories and services. In April 2019 the payShield 10K family launched the direct replacement for the payShield 9000 offering a seamless upgrade for existing Thales payment HSM customers.
The last time to buy on hardware is 30th June 2020 and the end-of-life for support will be 31st December 2022.
In recognition that many existing payShield 9000 customers will need extra HSM capacity, we are providing a last time buy period on hardware and an extended order period for accessories, spares and software license upgrades.
In addition, Thales is committed to providing support on the payShield 9000 until 31st December 2022. We look forward to continuing to support our customers worldwide by providing a comprehensive and easy migration path to the payShield 10K platform.
