Venafi Wins 2013 SC Award for Best Encryption Solution
« Posted: May 07, 2013, 03:43:21 PM »

Bracknell, UK – 7th May 2013: Venafi, the inventor of and market leader in Enterprise Key and Certificate Management (EKCM) solutions, today announced that SC (Secure Computing) Magazine Europe has named Venafi Director as Best Encryption Solution in the SC Europe 2013 Awards. The awards recognise innovative security solutions worldwide, rewarding industry-leading security vendors and cutting-edge technologies. The Best Encryption Solution award acknowledges Venafi’s innovation and leadership in helping organisations regain control over trust.

The honour comes at a time when many organisations have, unfortunately, lost that control. Targeted cyber-attacks are steadily increasing, and business executives face the costly consequences of exploits against cryptographic keys and digital certificates, the foundational technologies that establish trust. Through advanced, persistent attacks (APTs), bad actors will exploit any weakness in a security system to gain unauthorized access and steal data. Poor key and certificate management, coupled with weak, outdated cryptographic methods, leave organisations vulnerable to common, well-known exploits such as malware signed with stolen private keys or fraudulent certificates. As cloud computing increases and employee-owned devices are allowed on the network, the challenge of securing company data everywhere increases exponentially.

Hackers are targeting cryptographic keys and digital certificates due to the pivotal role these assets play in all enterprises, explained Kevin Bocek, Vice President of Product Marketing at Venafi. “In recent years, organisations have begun to realise their dependence on keys and certificates for almost every electronic service, from airline operations and online payments to cloud computing and secure communications. The importance of controlling trust and reducing exposure in this area simply cannot be overstated.”

Bocek expressed concern, however, that organisations’ management of their encryption assets does not match the assets’ importance. “Over half of all enterprises don’t know how many keys and certificates are in use, for instance. More than 60 percent of organisations would take a day or more to correct CA trust relationships if attacked by digitally signed malware. Organisations would respond just as slowly to a compromised SSH key—although these keys unlock all the resources in the cloud. Combine ignorance of how trust is established with the inability to quickly respond when trust breaks down, and you have the perfect vehicle for an APT and sophisticated attackers to launch their exploits.”

“That’s why,” continued Bocek, “we’re so thrilled that SC Magazine Europe recognized both the scope of the problem and how Venafi Director helps organisations to overcome it. We’re honoured to have won the Best Encryption Solution Award for the only solution in the industry that’s helping enterprises regain control of their most critical encryption resources.”

Venafi helps enterprises reduce the risk of malicious attacks on trust. With full lifecycle management of cryptographic keys and digital certificates, Venafi provides complete visibility into key and certificate inventories and end-to-end automation of processes. Venafi Director is the only enterprise platform that allows organisations to discover all their keys and certificates, connect these assets to the people responsible for them, report on and audit their use to prove compliance, enforce policies to reduce risk and errors, and automate all management operations to eliminate security threats, unplanned outages and compliance failures.
