Protecting Machine Identities Is Critical to the Success of Retail
Personal and financial information in retail transactions are prime targets for cybercriminals. Unprotected machine identities allow cyber criminals to compromise keys and certificates to gain trusted status on your network and remain undetected while stealing customer, partner, and company data. The Venafi Platform provides visibility, enforces security policies, identifies misuse, and automates remediation, securing keys and certificates for privacy and business availability.
Cybercriminals Are Targeting Your Keys and Certificates
Keys and certificates deliver secure online communications, authentication, and authorization. So you can maintain a safe and confidential retail environment—but only if the keys and certificates are secured. When left unprotected, cybercriminals can use them to spoof websites, hide in encrypted traffic, and steal customer data, often costing millions and damaging your business and brand through credit card breach.
Protecting Keys and Certificates Builds Trust
Your customers must have confidence in the security and privacy of transactions and the confidentiality of their personal information. Protecting your keys and certificates will help you enable secure transactions and remote access to point-of-sale devices and other systems and applications in your corporate offices and retail branches.
Unplanned Outages Are Costly for Retail
In the highly competitive retail world, you can’t afford any downtime. You need to maintain the continued availability of online services, which can be jeopardized by certificate-related outages. Expired certificates cause unplanned outages, taking down important retail services and systems which often causes millions in damages.

So your security can keep up with virtual and cloud applications, whether scaling up or down to meet demand for ecommerce security.
