Certificate Management and Automation
X.509 certificates and their keys are essential for authenticating the identity of an application and encrypting traffic between endpoints communicating with the application. When enterprises scale, the number of certificates and keys in the infrastructure proliferates. Often, these certificates and keys are managed using spreadsheets and a manual process that is error-prone, lacks the required visibility, and is audited inefficiently.
Without proper access controls and policy enforcement, anybody can create an SSL certificate in the environment, posing a huge security risk for the enterprise. Due to lack of visibility, no one knows when a certificate will expire, and if it is not renewed on time, the application goes down. Without an automated way to deploy, renew, and revoke certificates and keys on time, enterprises risk damage to their brand reputation and customer trust. That’s where AppViewX Cert+ comes in.
AppViewX CERT+ provides a one-stop solution for automated discovery, expiry alerting, renewal, provisioning and revoking of SSL/TLS certificates across networks including servers, clients, and ADC devices.
It arms Security Operations and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) teams with critical insights that can be used to avoid unwanted outages and other issues associated with non-compliant certificates.
CERT+ integrates with major Certificate Authorities such as GeoTrust, Comodo, GoDaddy, DigiCert, Microsoft CA and Entrust.
AppViewX Cert+ Capabilities
Automated Discovery and Inventory
Rogue, unknown and unmanaged certificates are an easy target for hackers. You need complete visibility into your infrastructure to control access to these certificates. CERT+ enables on-demand discovery of certificates from servers, clients, and ADC devices and refreshes your inventory regularly with a midnight sync option.
Role-Based Access Control
Weak certificates and unregulated access can compromise the security of your application infrastructure. With CERT+ you can administer policies to eliminate rogue certificates. You can also manage delegate access and apply granular visibility to individual certificates or certificate groups to enable efficient provisioning.
Compliance builds trust. Trust builds a larger customer base. With CERT+, enforce policies and ensure encryption compliance with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS-140). The safety of your private keys is ensured using our AES-256 encrypted database or even better, an HSM.
Automated Certificate Enrolment
Each step in the certificate enrolment process introduces the possibility for costly human errors. With CERT+’s automation feature, you can use a single console to order certificates from any supported CA, push issued certificates to multiple devices, renew existing certificates, revoke certificates and delete unused certificates all with ease and accuracy.
Holistic View of Certificates
Sifting through the thousands of certificates in your inventory can be cumbersome. With our holistic view, CERT+ graphically represents important certificate information like the certificate’s chain of trust and its associated devices. You can also perform necessary life cycle management processes like issuing, renewing and revoking multiple certificates without having to leave the holistic view.
Certificate Expiry Alerting and Reporting
Unplanned system outages are both costly and damaging to a brand’s reputation. CERT+ provides periodic reports on non-compliant certificates, expired but unrevoked certificates, and soon to expire certificates to proactively address vulnerabilities. You can choose to receive these alerts/reports through emails or SNMP traps.
