We humans have evolved a highly effective immune system. It’s always working to establish what is “self” and trusted and what is not and dangerous. We need the same protection for the cyber realm. But we haven’t had an effective immune system to defend against a new generation of cyberattacks—until now. At RSA Conference 2015, Venafi introduces the Immune System for the Internet.

Humans have one…

The human body evolved to survive in a world of threats. Inside of all of us is an identification system where HLA tags are attached to every cell. They are unique to each person. Our immune system uses these tags to identify what is self and what isn’t, what to trust and what to destroy. It learns to adapt in a world of ever-changing, complex threats.

But the Cyber Realm doesn’t…

The Internet was engineered with an identification system too: cryptographic keys and digital certificates. Just like HLA tags, these uniquely identify webservers, software, mobile devices, apps, admins, and even airplanes. But keys and certificates are blindly trust. So bad guys use them to hide in encrypted traffic, spoof websites, deploy malware, and steal data.

Venafi: The Immune System for the Internet

Just like your immune system, Venafi learns and adapts as it works. Venafi identifies what keys and certificates are trusted and those that need to be replaced. It keeps keys and certificates secured to your policy and replaces them automatically. It scales keys and certificates up and down to meet demand. From stopping certificate-based outages to enabling SSL inspection, Venafi creates an ever-evolving, intelligent response that protects your network, your business, and your brand.
