Organizations rely on cryptographic keys and certificates to establish trust for countless business activities from online payments to cloud services. However, the very trust that keys and certificates establish has become a target of attack. When organizations blindly trust keys and certificates, cyber-criminals can turn compromised keys and certificates against those organizations. Worse, organizations often have limited visibility into their vulnerabilities and a limited ability to respond to breaches. Criminals can successfully steal organizations’ data while remaining undetected for months or even years. These key and certificate vulnerabilities create significant security risks that require immediate action.
Venafi TrustForce automates responses to trust-based attacks as well as remediates vulnerabilities before they cause problems. TrustForce secures and protects the entire key and certificate lifecycle, automatically remediating anomalies by replacing the vulnerable key or certificate. With automated integration across hundreds of applications, devices, services, and Certificate Authorities (CAs), TrustForce ensures the remediation process occurs seamlessly. In addition, TrustForce enables organizations to scale their cryptographic resources more quickly and securely. Its automated key and certificate operations and intelligent application-specific integration let enterprises scale to hundreds of thousands of encryption keys and certificates—more quickly and securely than before.
As part of Venafi Trust Protection Platform, TrustForce uses lightweight agent and agentless technologies to automate complex activities, including rekeying and recertification, for which manual processes might open vulnerabilities. TrustForce enforces enterprise certificate whitelists to eliminate unnecessary risk from digital certificates signed by untrusted CAs. To prevent the misuse of Secure Shell (SSH) keys in the datacenter and the cloud, TrustForce responds automatically to suspicious anomalies such as the reconfiguration of an authorized key list. By deploying TrustForce in conjunction with Venafi TrustAuthority, enterprises gain complete visibility into their cryptographic resources, detect and report on anomalies, enforce enterprise policies, automatically remediate key and certificate vulnerabilities, and integrate with multiple analytics and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems
TrustForce allows organizations to:
- Recover faster from security incidents
- Automate vulnerability remediation
- Scale cryptographic resources faster to meet demands for service
- Eliminate downtime and improve operational efficiency
