When Venafi launched the $12.5 million Machine Identity Management Development Fund in 2018, we knew it was going to be big. But we didn’t predict the wide ranging impact of this innovation engine. From technology leaders to cutting-edge startups and independent open source developers, the who’s who of modern machine identity management have competed to join forces with Venafi in creating the world’s most expansive ecosystem for machine identities.
To date, Venafi has funded over 50 innovations that allow Venafi customers to automate lifecycle, authenticate, authorize, and govern machine identities across their environments. Only Venafi customers have the advantage of the Development Fund working to futureproof their success.
Venafi is excited to announce for the first time that customers will have the opportunity to vote on a shortlist of innovative developers competing to win and come out ahead in the Escape Gravity Challenge as the leading innovator in Machine Identity Management. Don’t miss this opportunity to join the world’s foremost experts in machine identity management at Machine Identity Management Summit 2023, where you’ll see where the future is headed for machine identities.
Summit 2023 attendees can meet developers and learn about the future of machine identity management. You’ll also have a chance to learn about the top innovators in our ecosystem and decide for yourself which innovation is most valuable to your organization.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the top contenders in the Machine Identity Management Escape Gravity Challenge. These leaders demonstrate how important authentication and authorization is to successful machine identity management. In the meantime, learn more about the broad scope of the Machine Identity Management Development Fund at /development-fund/.
A specialist in API, identity and access software solutions, APIIDA has built a direct integration with the Venafi Platform and Broadcom Layer7 API Management (formally CA) for automation not previously available for Layer7 API Gateway customers. This innovator has also built support for the Venafi Control Plane for Machine Identities and the APIIDA API Gateway Manager.
Machine identities used in API authentication are typically long-lived and easy to steal and reuse. Corsha solves this problem by providing a second layer of machine identity that is dynamic and unique to each machine, which enables zero-trust access for API services.
Device Authority Keyscaler’s integration with Venafi provides fully automated lifecycle management of x.509 certificates for your IoT devices, including secure delivery, renewal, and revocation of credentials based on defined policies. In addition, Keyscaler and Venafi CodeSign Protect provide an end-to-end solution for signing software code and automating the secure delivery of updates to IoT devices.
Nirmata and Venafi work together to stop unauthorized code from running in Kubernetes., Nirmata improves supply chain security by enabling image verification for Kubernetes clusters using Nirmata Policy Manager and Venafi CodeSign Protect.
Put futureproofing to the test
Come join us in this free-spirited competition to test and prove the value that Machine Identity Management Development Fund innovators are providing for the world’s most security savvy organizations.
