Frequently Asked Questions
TLS Protect for Kubernetes discovers all machine identities used within Kubernetes and reports on machine identity management infrastructure health, compliance and configuration across multiple clusters, independent of cloud platform provider used.
Yes, it supports major distributions including Red Hat OpenShift, VMWare Tanzu, Amazon EKS and Google GKE.
Yes, TLS Protect for Kubernetes helps enterprise-wide Kubernetes teams easily and reliably manage their infrastructure in complex multi cloud and multi cluster environments.
TLS Protect for Kubernetes is built on cert-manager, the leading open-source machine identity management and automation software for Kubernetes and OpenShift cloud native platforms. This platform automates the issuance and renewal of your certificates and alerts you to any misconfigurations.
TLS Protect for Kubernetes makes it easy for enterprise teams to enforce policies across Kubernetes workloads, including certificate validity checks.
TLS Protect for Kubernetes integrates cert-manager into the Venafi Control Plane, resulting in a unified experience for machine identity automation, monitoring and policy.
Venafi is the original creator of the open-source cert-manager project and continues to invest heavily now that it is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project.
TLS Protect for Kubernetes builds on Venafi's commercial cert-manager distribution, which includes long-term commercial support, signed images and FIPS 140-2 compliance.
Venafi is the leader in machine identity management. We established the category, and some of the largest companies in the world rely on us to secure cryptographic keys and certificates and ensure safe machine-to-machine communications.
Scattered, disparate uses of machine identities across the data center, cloud and multi cloud have made it difficult for enterprises to accurately measure their machine identity risk levels. Manual approaches to management are no longer feasible, and enterprises need a new way to control these unprecedented levels of complexity. Venafi created the Control Plane for Machine Identities to provide the highest levels of security and ensure no machine identities fall through the cracks—or between the lines of an outdated spreadsheet or siloed management system.
