The ability to quickly respond to incidents that impact keys and certificates is essential to regain the trust your company, customers, and partners depend on. But when an incident does occur, most do what Gartner calls, “’lazy’ certificate remediation:” they issue new certificates but do not generate new keys. Or they do not remediate at all—leaving the organization open to continued outages, incidents, and exploitation. With many organizations using legacy, error-prone, manual, or homegrown scripted solutions, it’s not surprising that they are unable to provide complete or timely incident response.
This lack of automation also impacts scalability and incident prevention. Without complete automation of issuance and renewal, key and certificate processes hinder dynamic scaling by key- and certificate-dependent virtual and cloud applications.
In addition, Gartner found that over 80% of organizations with NGFW, IPS, or UTM appliances do not decrypt SSL traffic. The result—security controls blindly trust keys and certificates, allowing bad guys to use them to hide in encrypted traffic, spoof websites, deploy malware, and steal data.
Venafi as the Immune System for the Internet™, uses Venafi TrustForce™ to automate the entire key and certificate lifecycle, determining which keys and certificates are self and trusted, protecting those that should be trusted, and fixing or blocking those that are not by blacklisting or automatically replacing vulnerable keys or certificates. In addition, organizations can eliminate blind spots from encrypted threats by automating the delivery of trusted keys for SSL/TLS decryption and threat protection. TrustForce also extends its automated certificate management and security capabilities to a wide range of Enterprise Mobility use cases, including email encryption, email signing, WiFi, VPN, browser, and device authentication. With automated integration across hundreds of applications, devices, services, and Certificate Authorities (CAs), TrustForce ensures protection and remediation processes occur seamlessly.
TrustForce also enables organizations to securely scale their cryptographic resources to meet elastic demands for services. Its automated key and certificate operations and intelligent application-specific integration let enterprises scale to hundreds of thousands of encryption keys and certificates.
