The Hidden Costs of Delaying SHA-1 Migration
SHA-1 certificates are not only vulnerable to exploits from forged certificates. They’ll soon stop your business when they block access to vital systems and applications. On January 1, 2017, browsers and operating systems, like Windows 10, will no longer trust code signed with SHA-1. The resulting blocked connections will trigger costly business interruptions.
Avoid SHA-1 Certificate-related Outages
When it comes to preventing outages, every certificate counts. Yet, manually migrating certificates is a slow and arduous task. And many administrators are finding it difficult to manage and validate their SHA-1 migration progress. Often, they are blind to where they are in the transition or if it is complete.
Internal SHA-1 Certificates Are Hard to Find and Update
Your migration challenges are compounded for internal SHA-1 certificates which are harder to discover, manage, secure, and migrate, because they are spread throughout the enterprise and owned by different organizational units. Plus, your developers must test and update all critical enterprise systems. It’s not an easy task.
Save Time and Money By Automating Your Migration
To ensure comprehensive SHA-1 migration, you need to quickly identify all known and unknown certificates. Venafi automates this process so that you can use security policy templates to create an automated renewal schedule. This helps you proceed quickly and accurately.
