Secure Internet-of-Things (IoT) Devices Against Attack

Automate Security for the Exponential Growth of IoT Keys and Certificates

Automate Security for the Exponential Growth of IoT Keys and Certificates

Venafi automates security for IoT keys and certificates. So you get real-time access to vital information such as how many keys and certificates you have, whether they have been corrupted, and whether they are acting in the way they are supposed to.

Visibility and Control

Secure Hard-to-protect IoT Devices

As billions of devices come online, it is increasingly critical to protect the keys and certificates that are used for authentication, validation, and privileged access control. If you don’t, cybercriminals can misuse keys and certificates to take control over entire networks for financial and other nefarious gains.

Venafi helps you implement stronger key and certificate security to protect IoT devices. We automate your protection to prevent damage caused by the compromise of keys and certificates in your business apps.

“Venafi is the only player in this market that has a good understanding of managing certificates.”

Protecting the Exponential Growth in IoT Devices

As our reliance on encryption increases and your organization depends on more and more devices, protection becomes more complex. The opportunity for hackers becomes increasingly lucrative and feasible. Especially as technology becomes more interconnected with the Internet of Things.

Attackers Misuse Keys and Certificates to Compromise IoT

Over the past five years, hackers have caught on to the potentially lucrative opportunity that keys and certificates offer. This is particularly alarming for IoT devices, each of which needs its own key and certificate. Very quickly, you’ll need to secure a mind-boggling number of keys and certificates. But first, you’ll need to know how many certificates and keys you've got, or where they're being used.

Why Every Single Certificate Matters in Protecting IoT

By taking a code-signing certificate and changing the entity it obeys, a hacker can change the firmware on a smart device to take control of it. From a single compromised certificate, cybercriminals can take over a whole network of hundreds, thousands or even millions of smart 'things'.

Secure Your IoT Keys and Certificates Against Compromise

Venafi helps you remain agile with automated security that gives you the visibility and control you need to uncover suspicious misuse of keys and certificate on IoT devices. The Venafi platform identifies which keys and certificates are trusted and which need replacing. Armed with this information, you can quickly change who an IoT device trusts.

Key Advantages

  • Identify all keys, certificates, CAs and trust stores
  • Continuously monitor keys and certificates for anomalies
  • Rapidly replace compromised keys and certificates
  • Enforce key and certificate policies to maintain security
