Prevent misuse and compromise with fully managed SSH keys

SSH Protect

Schedule Risk Assessment

Don’t let your SSH keys become a security liability.​

Ineffective tracking of SSH machine identities leads to key sprawl, lost keys, missing security controls and slow incident response—all increasing the risk of unauthorized access to your mission-critical systems.​

SSH Protect from Venafi can help you track and organize the vast number of SSH keys used in your organization, ensuring none of them are left exposed for adversaries to use and exploit.​

Manage the complete SSH machine identity lifecycle, from key generation to rotation.

SSH Protect is a machine identity management solution that discovers SSH host and authorized keys throughout your organization and maintains an up-to-date, actionable inventory. You can easily see which keys are being used where, who’s using them and—since they never expire—determine when to rotate them.

This comprehensive solution allows you to update thousands, or even millions, of keys all at once, making quick work of large-scale, batch remediation and replacement.
