Prepare to Protect Thousands of New Keys and Certificates
Public key infrastructure (PKI) is the foundation of your security. But securing your PKI can be challenging. Especially as you’re pressured to authenticate an increasing range of web services, new industry-specific devices, and networks of things without disruption. Not to mention addressing the impeding SHA-1 deprecation deadlines.
Can Your Old PKI Keep Up with New Threats?
If your PKI is outdated, it will lack the central visibility and consistent processes you need to maintain security in today’s fast-changing threatscape. You’ll be exposed to new threats. And you’ll spend more time dealing with errors and missed system updates that result in policy violations and costly business interruptions.
A Successful PKI Refresh Is Not an Easy Task
When you refresh your PKI, you’ll have to generate new root or intermediate CAs, then establish those CAs in hundreds or thousands of distributed applications’ certificate trust stores. The sheer scope of that effort can make it a daunting, expensive, and often error-prone project.
The Inherent Challenges of a PKI Refresh
You’ll have to juggle many moving pieces from disparate groups within your organization. You may face differing, distributed applications as well as administrators unfamiliar with certificates or trust stores. It’s even worse if you are working blind, not knowing where you are in the transition to new standards or even if your PKI refresh is complete.
Venafi Speeds the Success of Your PKI Project
Venafi gives you the control you need to successfully complete your PKI refresh. The Venafi Platform automates, streamlines, and validates your PKI refresh, scaling to secure hundreds of thousands of keys and certificates. We help you automate integration across hundreds of applications, devices and CAs. So you can deliver policy-enforced replacement or remediation of certificates in just minutes.
Get the Visibility You Need When You Need It
Venafi gives you the visibility you need to meet new rules for compliance and security frameworks. We help you identify all keys, certificates, CAs, and trust stores across your enterprise networks, the cloud, and multiple CAs. This visibility can also provide a baseline to flag anomalies, policy violations, and misuse after your PKI refresh is complete.
Enforce Policies and Workflows Across Your PKI
Venafi helps you address changes in security requirements and SHA-1 deprecation deadlines by enforcing configurable workflows capabilities for replacement, issuance and renewal. You can apply flexible policy criteria to your PKI, such as certificate lifetime, authorized CA, and more. Plus, you can track your progress with real-time dashboards and detailed reporting.
Automating Management and Security Is the Key to Success
Venafi automates the entire CA and certificate refresh process, including the distribution and whitelisting of new CAs in trust stores. You can then automatically validate that certificates are installed and applications are running. In the event of a compromise, automation speeds remediation, allowing you to replace certificates in seconds.
