Banks Rely on The Success of Keys and Certificates
To secure customer data and brand reputation, banks employ rigorous security processes. This includes tens of thousands of SSL/TLS encryption certificates used to guarantee privacy of data while in transit. This is especially important for securing online banking and mobile applications that enable the transfer of funds across mobile phones.
Keys and Certificate Quickly Become Unmanageable
Many banks still rely on manual processes to secure every step of the certificate lifecycle. Manual process can be error prone and time consuming. Management alone can quickly consume hundreds of work per year. Even worse, manual processes give you limited visibility into your entire key and certificate population.
You Need Real-Time Visibility of All Keys and Certificates
One of the biggest risks to bank operations is the lack of security and control over the certificate population once deployed within the bank. Without the proper visibility, you simply have no way of identifying out-of-band certificates or ensuring that certificates are in compliance with bank policies. If an attack hits, you have no practical way to quickly regenerate thousands of certificates.
Discover and Enforce Policies for All Keys and Certificates
Venafi help you identify all keys and certificates in your network, including new or rogue certificates. This helps you identify vulnerabilities as well as risky attributes. You can then replace certificates that do not comply with bank policies for key length, hashing algorithm, validity periods, and other attributes with new, secure, and compliant certificates.
Access Reports for Remediation and Risk Assessment
Venafi helps you analyze certificates for policy compliance and risk assessment. Reports identify known vulnerabilities used by cybercriminals to exploit the trust organizations have in keys and certificates. You can then prioritize your remediation efforts and allocate resources where they can make the most impact.
Reduce Workload While Improving Security
Automating security for keys and certificates can radically reduce the amount of time required for management and administration. You’ll save thousands of man hours, while virtually eliminating escalations. Plus, you’ll speed protection by issuing certificates in days instead of weeks. With less demand on staff, your bank can reduce costs for staffing as well as outside contractors.
