Skip HSM Hardware when Securing Machine-to-Machine Communications [Thanks Unbound Tech]

Skip HSM Hardware when Securing Machine-to-Machine Communications [Thanks Unbound Tech]

September 23, 2020 | Bridget Hildebrand

The Venafi Ecosystem continues to grow in support of enterprise-grade Machine Identity Management for the world’s largest and most security conscious organizations. Today we welcome Unbound Tech, who are experts at securing critical data without the hassle of traditional dedicated hardware. Recently, Unbound Tech and Venafi announced the integration of Unbound’s NextGen virtual Hardware Security Module (vHSM®) with Venafi’s Trust Protection Platform. The integration delivers a complete out-of-the-box solution for machine identity management, all in software, enabling organizations to easily protect and manage machine identities, in a solution that provides the highest level of protection for all keys and secrets.

Watch this Unbound Tech and Venafi webinar to learn how to secure machine identities without the need for dedicated hardware-based infrastructure.

Machine interoperability is a critical factor for organizations in 2020. As organizations increasingly rely on disparate systems to communicate with each other, protecting the entire system throughout the machine identity lifecycle is critically important. Most machine identity management systems are HSM-dependent, and not as easily adaptable for use in the cloud. However, with Unbound's NextGen vHSM, not only are those systems compatible with any major cloud service provider (CSP), they are also easier to manage across a single pane of glass.

The Venafi and Unbound partnership will provide organizations with machine identity management that is not reliant on hardware, is interoperable between data centers on-prem and cloud environments and is fast to deploy and easy to maintain. Together, the integrated solution supports business needs by bringing together systems that both increase security and simplify the protection of machine identities.

"We believe that securing machine-to-machine communications is of massive importance to Venafi, making the integration of our NextGen vHSM solution into their stack, a clear demonstration of our leadership in the identity authentication space," said Rocco Donnino, vice president of strategic alliances at Unbound. "Together we are committed to securing their users, whether on–premise or in the cloud."

"Now with the Unbound and Venafi integration, customers can select a complete out-of-the-box machine identity management solution for keys no matter where they are used," said Kevin Bocek, vice president of security strategy and threat intelligence at Venafi. "This agility provides our customers with the speed and freedom needed to architect their business in a way that results in increased security. The partnership closes security gaps left open by unprotected machine identities."
