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

Overview

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.

  • Gain visibility into your vulnerabilities and security gaps
