Outages Are Costly and Dangerous
The more you use keys and certificates to protect sensitive data, the more you have to manage, and the greater the chance of an expiration impacting your business. Expired certificates will block access to servers, websites, and potentially dozens of critical downstream services. Plus, the financial impact of an outage is staggering: an average of $15 million per outage.
What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
Today’s average enterprise relies on tens of thousands of certificates.1 And with new rules reducing certificate lifetimes to three months or less, that’s a lot of renewals to manage. But the real issue isn’t the sheer number—it’s that a high percentage of companies don’t know how many digital certificates they actually have. You can’t manage what you don’t know about. And that makes you susceptible to costly outages.
Take Control of Your Certificates
To prevent certificate-related outages, it is essential that you discover, track, and continuously monitor all digital certificates. Try to do this with spreadsheets, vulnerability scanners, and CAs, and you will quickly learn how easy it is to fail. Only comprehensive, automated management and security can keep your SSL/TLS keys and certificates safe and active.
