Gartner: Responding to New SSL Cybersecurity Threats – Venafi

Strategies for Responding to New SSL Cybersecurity Threats

Featuring insights from Gartner

Global enterprises have a gaping hole in their security strategies for defending against rampant digital trust-based attacks on cryptographic keys and digital certificates. And they don’t even know it.

Cyber criminals know that many organizations have little visibility into their keys and certificates. And without knowing exactly what keys and certificates are out there, they certainly can’t respond quickly or effectively to an attack. As a result, trust-based attacks that result from unprotected keys and certificates are skyrocketing. For example, digitally signed malware has increased by 3,850% since 2012, and “Gartner believes that, in 2017, more than half of the network attacks targeting enterprises will use encrypted traffic to bypass controls, up from less than 5% today.”

Unprotected keys and certificates let attackers exploit trusted SSL connections. Self-signed certificates let attackers steal data or worse, SSH keys allow attackers to gain privileged, root access to servers and clouds.

But your organization doesn’t have to be vulnerable. Download “Responding to New SSL Cybersecurity Threats” now to:
