Ultimaco is used by many as well.

The HSM community is small and most know each other and from my personal
experience will listen intently on anything that allows them to
differentiate their products.  When design the root signer stuff, for
example, I found AEP happy to adjust their plans to get our buy in.

That said, I know its an old product line.

Here is a ref to a deployment by .VN recently.  They seemed ok with the
Ultimaco stuff.

I love the Cryptech stuff but as said on this list already without a
sue-able business behind it (and an even more sue-able trail of cpa firms
behind it), i find it hard to put a business behind it.

Me sceptical - no.  Not me
