Protect Privileged Access to Machine Identities

Control Your SSH Keys to Minimize Your Risk Exposure

Keep Your SSH Keys Out of the Hands of Hackers

Cyber criminals can misuse SSH keys to elevate their privileges in high-value machines on your network. Without visibility into how SSH keys are used, you cannot detect these threats and cannot defend against them.

Visibility and Control

Block Hackers from Privileged Access

Venafi helps organizations secure and control all SSH keys to minimize the risk of unauthorized privileged access to critical business applications and systems. The Venafi Platform provides access control security that delivers visibility on all your SSH keys, prevents the misuse of machine identities and manages rotation and replacement when employees leave.

“Monitoring has been made easier and internal certificate alerts are more effective.

Keep Your SSH Keys Out of the Hands of Hackers

SSH keys do not expire, creating a perpetual weakness if not proactively attended to. Surprisingly, most companies change their SSH keys far less often than they change user passwords. They rely on system administrators, not IT security teams, to self-police SSH key usage and security adherence. And many don’t have access control systems in place to identify, rotate and remediate vulnerable SSH keys.

The Venafi Platform allows you to continuously apply controls that secure privileged access across the global extended enterprise, automating the entire SSH key lifecycle from issuance to decommissioning. With complete, enterprise-wide visibility into SSH key inventories identifies, you can map trust relationships between hosts and users. You’ll then have the intelligence you need to then monitor and detect malicious behavior while enforcing security policies for SSH keys.

Key Advantages
  • Gain centralized visibility into all SSH keys and where they grant privileged access
  • Lower security risk exposure by identifying SSH keys that are not compliant
  • Increase security by automating the remediation of SSH weaknesses
  • Enforce security controls designed to limit privileged access account accessibility
  • Continuously monitor and track the trust relationships of SSH keys and servers
