Your business runs on software. And you protect that software by using code signing. Cybercriminals know this and they target your code signing system to use it against you. They do this by stealing your private code signing keys or by breaking into an internal build system and adding malware to your legitimate software using an unprotected code signing key. Or worse. They can also modify your unprotected critical business infrastructure.
Do you know where all of your organization’s code signing private keys are stored? Are they spread over your developers’ computers, build servers, or even web servers? How do you know if they are always secured and protected? Easy answer: Code signing private keys should always be stored in a secure location and never leave it. For any reason.
Code signing processes must be automated. It’s the only way to enforce proper certificate usage, approval flows, and which code is authorized to be signed. Because the needs of software projects vary, you need the flexibility and scalability to support different code signing processes and approval workflows.
First and foremost, your secure software code signing process needs to support the needs of those who use it—your developers. Venafi allows you to integrate with the tools your developers already use. Plus, we won’t slow developers down by requiring them to send their code to be signed on a remote server. With code signing as a service, developers will never have to worry about managing private keys and certificates themselves.
Secure your enterprise’s code signing process with CodeSign Protect. Integrated tightly with the market-leading Venafi Trust Protection Platform, CodeSign Protect makes code signing fast and easy for your development teams by automating the certificate lifecycle. More importantly, it makes code signing secure by protecting private code signing keys and enforcing policy and approval workflows.
