Machine Identity Protection Instills Confidence
Even with other security controls in place, cybercriminals can compromise unprotected keys and certificates, which are often used to bypass these security controls via trust-based attacks. Venafi helps you strengthen your key and certificate security and prevent compromise of machine identities. The Venafi Platform empowers you to create a comprehensive inventory, secure a centralized repository, enforce consistent workflows, and automate processes to keep your business safe from cyber crimes.
Protect All Your Keys and Certificates
To keep your keys and certificates safe from compromise, you’ll need central visibility and consistent processes. If not, you’ll struggle with weakened security and long delays for certificate renewals, putting you at risk of cyber crime. Even worse, you may miss a renewal and suffer from website security certificate-related outages, brand damage, and even financial loss.
Strengthen Your Machine Identity Protection
Venafi can also help your organization reduce risk by ensuring proper key and certificate configuration. So you can be sure you’re using only current, strong cryptography—including attributes such as key length, validity period, and cryptographic hash type. Venafi monitoring and reporting capabilities also provide visibility into the ongoing state of your security and compliance, protecting them from cyber crimes.
Start by Creating a Comprehensive Inventory
Many insurance companies don’t know where all of their certificates are or how they are being used: they have no inventory system or centralized, secure key and certificate repository. Venafi helps you discover where your certificates are located and how they are being used. This helps you keep all SSL wildcard certificates current and up to date with the latest security practices.
Consistently Enforce Security through Workflows
If you are still using manual methods such as email and spreadsheets to track keys and certificates, you’re at risk. This creates inconsistent efforts, lack of visibility, and no structure to enforce policies. Venafi helps you set up workflows for security practices that anyone can use for consistent certificate security, such as SSL wildcard certificates, across the company.
Automate Your Security to Close Security Gaps
Venafi provides automated certificate provisioning processes to ensure efficient and secure deployment. You can also load your key and certificate inventory with automated network scans. Plus, Venafi helps you preconfigure certificate renewals, so they move forward without human interaction other than a manual check of the certificate and its associations prior to its scheduled renewal date and time.
