Cryptographic keys and digital certificates are the foundation of all cybersecurity. Because every business and government agency depends on them for secure communications, commerce, computing and mobility, keys and certificates have become integral to everyday business operations in the data center, in the cloud, and on mobile devices.
However, keys and certificates have also become a prime target for cybercriminals. Most security systems blindly trust keys and certificates, allowing bad guys to use them to hide in encrypted traffic, spoof websites, deploy malware, and steal data.
Since Stuxnet, the misuse of keys and certificates has grown astronomically—with 700% growth in certificate—enabled malware from 2012 to 2015, according to Intel Security. And this misuse is so pervasive that the Ponemon Institute found 100% of all G5000 enterprises surveyed were compromised by an attack on keys and certificates within the last 2 years.
With increased reliance on keys and certificates, there are also more outages—the Ponemon Institute found that all organizations surveyed had 2 or more certificate–related outages over the last 2 years with a total possible impact of $15 million per outage.
But there is a solution. With Venafi TrustAuthority™, Venafi TrustForce™, and Venafi TrustNet™, the Venafi Trust Protection Platform™ is the Immune System for the Internet™—establishing which SSL/TLS, SSH, mobile, WiFi, and VPN keys and certificates are “self” and trusted and which are not and therefore dangerous, helping organizations regain control over the trust provided by keys and certificates.
This platform provides native integration with thousands of applications and common APIs for the extensive security ecosystem—all controlled with a single interface. Trust Protection Platform is a formidable solution for remediating key and certificate vulnerabilities and regaining online trust.
