Venafi TrustAuthority™

Protects Machine Identities with Continuous Key and Certificate Monitoring

v-control Icon
​The vast majority of organizations do not effectively manage the keys and certificates that secure machine identities. Yet the inability to control and account for all machine identities can leave your organization vulnerable to application outages and security breaches.
Global Visibility

Continuously Discover All Enterprise Keys and Certificates

Get the global visibility and intelligence you need to determine which machine identities should be trusted, and fix or block those that should not. Discover and protect all keys and certificates across internal and external infrastructures, the internet, and virtual, cloud and IoT infrastructures.

Get a free risk assessment to see how many of your certificates are weakest.

“Venafi has significantly reduced our certificate-related outages and determined root cause analysis of certificate-related issues.”

- The Progressive Corporation

platform

At the core of the Venafi Platform, TrustAuthority gives you valuable insight into your entire key and certificate inventory so you can enforce security policies to reduce risk. With an accurate inventory, you can establish a baseline, quickly identify weaknesses and begin issuing, managing, and renewing keys and certificates with certificate monitoring tools. This enterprise-wide visibility helps you detect and prevent attackers from misusing rogue keys and certificates to compromise your machine identities—ultimately preventing them from hiding in encrypted traffic, spoofing websites, deploying malware, and stealing corporate data.

Key Advantages
  • Gain visibility into weaknesses and fix critical vulnerabilities
  • Detect anomalies through continuous monitoring
  • Reduce organizational incident risk and attack surface
  • Achieve compliance and audit success
  • Integrate with multiple analytics and SIEM systems
How It Works

TrustAuthority discovers the configuration, location, and use of every key and certificate, so you can continuously monitor their status to identify weaknesses, detect anomalies and enforce policies. With this improved enterprise-wide visibility of your keys and certificates, you can safeguard your machine identities against compromise and reduce the risk of unplanned certificate-related outages.

What’s in It for You

Improved Visibility

  • Quickly create an accurate inventory with cloud-based and agentless scanning
  • Discover all internal and external SSL, TLS, mobile and user certificates, as well as your SSH keys
  • Discover internal certificates by scanning local systems to retrieve certificates in file systems and key stores
  • Map SSH private keys in your SSH certificate authority to users and hosts with certificate monitoring tools
  • Automatically connect to any CA to import certificates that are not in the inventory

Wider Control

  • Enforce enterprise-wide key and certificate security policies with a proven enterprise framework
  • Create policies using attributes such as key length, validity period, and cryptographic hash type
  • Integrate with third-party workflow systems through our REST APIs and configurable workflows
  • Enforce mobile certificate compliance by integrating with leading Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions
  • Empower system and network administrators to easily manage keys and certificates for their domains without being security experts

Automated Distribution

  • Quickly issue new certificates through an easy-to-use, web-based, self-service portal
  • Speed security for DevOps by automating the provisioning process with popular DevOps frameworks
  • Automate certificate requests and renewals to ensure compliance, eliminate guesswork, and prevent manual errors

Continuous Key and Certificate Monitoring

  • Schedule regular scans to detect anomalous use of keys and certificates
  • Receive automatic notifications if a rogue key or certificate is discovered
  • Validate that all monitored keys and certificates are properly installed and configured with SSL certificate verification
  • Alert administrators to important events such as impending certificate expirations

Case study

Lowering Business Risk with Trusted Keys and Certificates at a Leading Energy Company

Before Venafi: Manual management of known certificates; increased reliance on PKI—SSL/TLS, mobile devices, and multi-factor authentication; no visibility into root cause of outages.

After Venafi: Discovered over 2,500 keys and certificates, repaired undetected vulnerabilities; enabled “push-button” remediation; established charge-back revenue model for ops team.
