Eliminating Risk and Restoring Confidence in Patient Data for Healthcare IT Services
Before Venafi: Fast key and certificate growth; manual, multi-touch issuance processes; increased risk to data with expanding attack surface.
After Venafi: Established key and certificate policies; automated replacement of non-compliant certificates; accelerated remediation and protected against trust-based attacks.
Providing IT services for healthcare organizations is a sensitive business. Because healthcare data is highly regulated, the company uses certificates to secure its services. The company was experiencing rapid growth in its keys and certificates and manual, multi-touch issuance processes could not keep up. Since the manual process required the involvement of several staff members, data quality also became an issue, which increased the risk to data. As the number of keys and certificates grew, these security risks increased the company’s attack surface.
The company needed key and certificate processes that would automate remediation of certificate vulnerabilities to reduce risk. The company now relies on Venafi for key and certificate policies that automatically replace non-compliant certificates.
If an attack does occur, the organization can deliver rapid remediation, ensuring data privacy for their customers’ healthcare data.
