Delivering Speed and Efficiency via Visibility and Automation for Surescripts
Before Venafi: Unconstrained certificate growth - SSL/TLS, SSH, and mobile; error-prone, manual certificate issuance processes; multivendor PKI.
After Venafi: Automated, scalable self-service certificate portal; 20% reduction in FTE costs; rapid certificate deployment - under three weeks; open API for medical-grade compliance
Surescripts is the only nationwide network in the U.S. to enable health organizations to securely share electronic information. This means that Surescripts services are heavily regulated by HIPAA and other privacy standards.
The Surescripts IT team worked directly with their customers through manual processes to have certificates issued to ensure privacy, sending sensitive data across to multiple locations. With incredible growth, going from one certificate a week to 100s, the company need automation and security in a solution that would integrate easily in its multivendor PKI environment.
In less than three weeks, Surescripts saw measureable results. They got full visibility across their SSL keys and certificates, SSH keys, and mobile and user certificates.
“Venafi helped us dramatically reduce risk. TrustAuthority and TrustForce made is much easier to put strong governance in place. Now, private keys are issued on random servers. With TrustForce, we’ve improved data integrity by automating much of the process. And we know what ‘normal’ looks like, so we can better detect anomalies when they occur,” Paul Calatayud, CISO Surescripts.
With Venafi, Surescripts was able to reduce its certificate management needs by 20 full-time equivalent employees—while delivering scalability and security. The Venafi API allowed them to simplify customer onboarding. The bottom line: Surescripts was able to safely increase speed and efficiency.
