Early in the advent of machine identity management and protection, Venafi realized how large of a technology ecosystem was impacted by the availability and security of keys and certificates. To improve and extend the safe use of machine identities throughout network and security infrastructures, Venafi created the Machine Identity Management Development Fund. The purpose of the Fund is to sponsor the development of integrations with the Venafi Platform that solve real customer problems, while accelerating the expansion of the Venafi ecosystem.
In the latest expansion, another three developers have now joined the Machine Identity Management Development Fund. These funded developers will create integrations that accelerate the delivery of comprehensive management for machine identities across mobile devices, DevOps and multi cloud environments, and Internet of Things (IoT) networks.
Twelve months ago, the Machine Identity Management Development Fund was launched with $12 million in funds as a global initiative to increase the visibility, intelligence and automation required for machine identity management across enterprise networks. The Fund has added another three expert developers who are tackling real customer challenges in securing digital keys and certificates that enable machine-to-machine communications. They are:
“The latest additions to our Development Fund bring exciting new opportunities for effective machine identity management,” said Kevin Bocek, vice president of security strategy and threat intelligence at Venafi. “The Venafi vision of the world is a space where all machine identities are protected from cybercriminals, outages, displacement and more. The new developers provide Global 5000 organizations with new ways to scale use of mobile devices, safely deploy enterprise IoT and deliver TLS, SSH and code signing reports to executives and much more.”
