Stop Losing Money on Outages
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.

Lower Your Chances of an Outage

Venafi automates the entire renewal process so you can avoid outage-related business disruption. You’ll have what it takes to replace certificates in seconds across dozens of CAs. Plus, in the event of a CA compromise or new vulnerability, you’ll be prepared to remediate across thousands of certificates in just hours. Built-in validation informs you that certificates are installed, working, and current.

Safeguard Your Business and Reputation

Expired digital certificates can cause costly, business-disrupting outages that have long-term reputational and business damages.
