Venafi, the inventor of and market leader in Enterprise Key and Certificate Management (EKCM) solutions, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Venafi Encryption Director™ (Director) a finalist for the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in the risk management category. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.
Digital certificates and encryption keys have become the de-facto standard for ensuring online trust. Nearly all enterprises have deployed these security instruments, and may use thousands and even tens of thousands of certificates and encryption keys in their data centers, clouds environments and on mobile devices to authenticate systems and users and to protect data. As a result, certificates, keys and their issuers have become high-value targets for cybercriminals in search of valuable government and corporate information.
To manage and reduce the risk associated with certificates and keys, organizations need solutions that allow them to automate the provisioning, discovery, monitoring and management of trust, and to easily identify, revoke and replace weak certificates and keys. In response, Venafi developed the Director platform.
Venafi Director is the only enterprise platform that allows organisations to discover all their keys and certificates, connect these trust instruments to the people responsible for them, report on and audit their use and compliance, enforce policies to reduce risk and errors, and automate all management processes to eliminate security risks, downtime and compliance failures. Designed specifically for the enterprise, Venafi Director helps organisations regain their control over trust by managing any key, any certificate, anywhere.
“We are proud to be recognized as an industry player whose Venafi Director has been named finalist by Info Security Products Guide,” says Gregory Webb, Venafi VP of Marketing. “Behind this distinguished success is our relentless drive to stay customer focussed. We believe this recognition from Info Security Products Guide further validates our commitment to our customers and their security needs.”
