What is PKI? Public key infrastructure (PKI) is the foundation of machine identity protection. By properly securing the keys and certificates that govern machine identities, you minimize the risk of outages and reduce security risks.
The number of machines on enterprise networks is exploding and manual or in-house PKI management solutions simply can’t keep up. Plus, homegrown PKI solutions often lack the central visibility, intelligence and automated processes you need to effectively defend against machine identity threats.
With cloud and DevOps, your machine identities are being spun up and down several times a day, or even an hour. If your PKI can’t be extended to authenticate to an increasing range of web and cloud services, DevOps services and new industry-specific devices at machine speed and scale, you increase the risk of jeopardizing security and availability.
With automated PKI management, you can orchestrate the entire certificate life cycle—from provisioning and rotation to replacement. You can automatically confirm that all PKI certificates are properly installed and configured. And in the event of a compromise, automation dramatically accelerates remediation, allowing you to replace groups of certificates in seconds.
The Venafi Platform automates, streamlines and protects the entire PKI certificate life cycle, scaling to secure all your keys and certificates. We help you orchestrate PKI encryption across hundreds of applications, devices and certificate authorities (CAs), allowing you to deliver policy-enforced replacement or remediation of public key certificates in just minutes.Learn about our products
