Intelligence-based Action Speeds Protection

v-control Icon
​Automated action is the only way to secure and protect increasing numbers of constantly growing and evolving machine identities.

Static key and certificate data is not enough to secure your organization’s machine identities. You need dynamic machine identity data to drive intelligence-based action to orchestrate the entire machine identity lifecycle and automatically respond to the changing threat landscape. Learn more about how you can improve security and availability by proactively protecting machine identities across the global extended enterprise.

Reaction time is everything. If your organization can’t react and enforce security policies at machine speed and scale, you’ll increase your risk profile for compromised machine identities or certificate-based outages. Automating remediation and verification will help you correct errors and weaknesses in machine identities and validate that actions have been performed correctly.

Reduce risk through orchestration and governance

Orchestrating machine identity intelligence helps you authorize and grant appropriate access to resources and applications without human intervention. By coordinating all verified machine identities, you can verify the security of machine-to-machine connections and communications, enabling the creation of secure encrypted tunnels at machine speed and scale.

Venafi orchestrates intelligence in action to improve cybersecurity and reduce risk in the following ways:

  • Continuous Verification. Applies pre-defined security policies to continually validate key or certificate trustworthiness and trigger appropriate responses for anomalous behavior or potentially compromised certificates.
  • Granular Control. Calibrates rule-based access controls to allow or block full or limited access between machines based on identity characteristics, risk and reputational scores.
  • Policy Compliance. Defines automated workflows, provisioning and change management controls to ensure that machine identities comply with security and operational policies.
  • Policy Enforcement. Ensures that machine identities created within policy are the only machines allowed to authenticate to each other.
  • Universal CA Support. Manages the entire certificate lifecycle with out-of-the box support for multiple internal and external certificate authorities.
  • Automated Protection. Automatically finds, revokes, changes and re-validates rogue or compromised machine identities across the global extended enterprise and the Internet.

High-speed protection with automated remediation and verification

Machine identities become vulnerable to attack over time, especially as the cryptographic landscape is in constant motion. You need systems in place that allow you to react quickly to events such as broken algorithms, compromised or untrusted certificate authorities. Automated remediation helps you keep pace with the velocity and volume of changes to the cryptographic landscape by updating or replacing vulnerable or compromised machine identities in real time.

But you must also be certain that any changes are consistent with the appropriate policies and workflows. To do this, you’ll need to validate that updated or new certificates have been properly installed and configured so that they use strong ciphers, hash algorithms, key strength and protocols.

Venafi automates the remediation and validation process in the following ways:

  • Proactive Protection. Breaks the kill chain by automatically correcting vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, certificate authority errors and other common machine identity weaknesses.
  • Streamlined Maintenance. Automates routine maintenance tasks such as the proactive identification and replacement of expiring certificates and key rotation to prevent unplanned outages, save time and reduce the risk of human error.
  • Global Remediation. Orchestrates remediation and verification of all machine identities across the entire certificate life cycle, including internal, external, virtual, cloud, and IoT infrastructures and multiple certificate authorities.
  • Machine-speed Security. Automates remediation to immediately reverse or stop data theft, business interruption, or the brand damage caused by compromised machine identities.
  • Crypto Agility. Automates bulk remediation to quickly respond to a CA compromise or inadvertent error, or to change, remove, replace or consolidate certificate authorities.
  • Automated Validation. Verifies that all manual or automated remediation actions have been successfully completed according to specified policies and workflows.
  • Security Ecosystem Integrations. Manage the key and certificate life cycle across multiple industry-leading security, application performance, DevOps, cloud and decryption technologies.
