Cryptographic keys and digital certificates provide the foundation of all cybersecurity. This protection is so extensive that the average enterprise has over 23,000 keys and certificates. But 54% of security professionals admit to being unaware of where all of their keys and certificates are located, who owns them, or how they are used, according to a survey by Ponemon Institute. This lack of visibility prevents organizations from confirming the mitigation of operational issues, such as outages, and security risks, like backdoors, unauthorized surveillance, and spoofing.
As part of Venafi Trust Protection Platform™, Venafi TrustAuthority™ delivers complete key and certificate visibility, creating a comprehensive inventory of SSL/TLS, SSH, mobile, WiFi, and VPN keys and certificates, including certificates signed by multiple Certificate Authorities (CAs), across the enterprise network, and out to the cloud. With this secure, centralized inventory, TrustAuthority uses ongoing monitoring to identify key and certificate vulnerabilities, enforce enterprise policies, and detect misuse. With TrustAuthority, organizations reduce their risk of unplanned outages and compromise, and decrease the impact if an incident does occur.
Venafi is the Immune System for the Internet™. With the visibility and policy enforcement delivered by TrustAuthority, Venafi is able to respond like a human immune system to identify what is self and what isn’t—determining which SSL/TLS, SSH, mobile, WiFi, and VPN keys and certificates are trusted, protecting those that should be trusted, and fixing or blocking those that are not.
With TrustAuthority, enterprises are able to gain complete visibility into their cryptographic resources, detect and report on anomalies, and enforce enterprise policies. When deployed in conjunction with Venafi TrustForceTM, organizations are able to automatically remediate key and certificate vulnerabilities. And as part of the Trust Protection Platform, TrustAuthority integrates with multiple analytics and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems.
