Trust Protection Platform™

Secure Trust. Limit Exposure. Respond Quickly.

Analyst Coverage

“Cybercriminals are known to steal SSH keys or manipulate which keys are trusted to gain access to source code and other valuable intellectual property” Read More

“Advanced threat detection provides an important layer of protection but is not a substitute for securing keys and certificates that can provide an attacker trusted status that evades detection.” Read More

"Basically, the enterprise is a sitting duck."

"PKi is under attack...Advanced and persistent adversaries go for keys" Read More

"When there are many hundreds of certificates from a variety of certificate authorities, the only ecumenical [universal], nonproprietary provider of a certificate management solution is Venafi. Other CA management systems are biased toward the particular CA by, for example, only supporting renewals from that specific CA." Read More

"No CISO could consider having tens of thousands of unknown network ports open and have no way to control them. But that’s the alarming reality today with regards the trust established by keys and certificates..." Read More

"Organizations with roughly 200 or more documented X.509 certificates in use are high-risk candidates for unplanned expiry and having certificates that have been purchased but not deployed." Read More

"Technology critical to cloud computing is in clear and present danger...attacks on Secure Shell (SSH) keys present the most alarming threat arising from failure to control trust." Read More

“Certificates can no longer be blindly trusted” Read More

“Just because something is digitally signed doesn't mean it can be trusted.”

“Enterprise awareness of attacks on keys and certificates is in its infancy; most don’t understand how to detect or respond to an attack.” Read More


Cryptographic keys and digital certificates are the foundation of trust. Because companies rely on them to secure digital information and control access to intellectual property, these assets have become integral to everyday business operations in the data center, in the cloud, and on mobile devices. However, the very trust that keys and certificates establish has become a source of attack. Keys and certificates have quickly become one of cybercriminals’ preferred attack vectors. Since Stuxnet, misuse of keys and certificates has grown astronomically—1600% between Q1’12 and Q3’13 according to Intel Security. Forrester found 44% of all enterprises have already experienced attacks on keys and certificates and 60% can’t respond to such attacks within 24 hours.

Organizations blindly trust keys and certificates, and security solutions have limited visibility into encrypted traffic or how encryption keys and certificates are used within the enterprise. With limited visibility and the inability to respond to a key- or certificate-based attack, organizations are at increased risk of compromise.

For any organization, Venafi Trust Protection Platform secures and protects keys and certificates in the datacenter, on desktops, on mobile devices, and in the cloud. Trust Protection Platform increases your organization’s security posture by reducing your attack surface and enabling you to respond faster when your trust assets (keys and certificates) are compromised. Deployed as part of Venafi TrustAuthority and Venafi TrustForce, this platform provides native integration with thousands of applications and common APIs for the extensive security ecosystem. With a single interface for controlling the complete ecosystem, Trust Protection Platform is a formidable solution for remediating key and certificate vulnerabilities.

  • Gain visibility into your vulnerabilities and security gaps
  • Apply policies to ensure robust settings for cryptographic attributes
  • Achieve compliance full logging and monitoring capabilities
  • Automatically remediate key and certificate threats
