With $12.5 million, the Machine Identity Protection Development Fund sponsors the development of integrations with the Venafi Platform, accelerating the expansion of the Venafi ecosystem.
Kafka connector for the Venafi Platform to identify real-time SSH risks
OpenCredo will use Fund sponsorship to create an open source Kafka connector for the Venafi Platform that will leverage machine learning and open source graph technology. The connector will identify real-time SSH risks by collecting real-time intelligence from the Venafi platform to drive visualizations of SSH risks that can’t evaluated with the human eye.
Seamless, automatic policy usage for cert-manager and certificate validation for certificates running in Kubernetes
Jetstack will use Fund sponsorship to make it easy for DevOps teams to use certificates configured by Venafi policies so security teams can consistently enforce machine identity policies. They will also add support that allows Venafi to validate and audit the current state of Kubernetes certificates – something that is impossible for a humans or traditional network scanners in ever-changing Kubernetes environments.
Connector with support for RACF CA running on System Z for issuance of digital certificates
Using the Venafi Adaptable Certificate Authority API, Cygnacom has already built eConnector, which integrates full featured, security Entrust Datacard PKI environments with the Venafi platform. They will use fund sponsorship to extend this integration into IBM z/RACF environments.
The Fund will rapidly expand the Venafi ecosystem, enabling you to build machine identity intelligence into a wider range of your enterprise infrastructure. And it’s not just what you need now! The Fund future-proofs your machine identity protection program as integrations continue to be developed in line with technology changes.Visit the Venafi Technology Network Marketplace.
With machine identity protection built in to more applications—especially DevOps, multi-cloud and mobile —Venafi customers will be better equipped to secure their organizations and reduce risk. If you are a developer organization with focus on these technolgies, the Fund can be a vehicle for business growth and extended customer reach.Interested? Let us tell you more about the Fund.
