Venafi is a Leader in Machine Identity Protection.
Companies use Venafi to secure the cryptographic keys and digital certificates on which they depend to deliver safe machine-to-machine connections and communications.
Applications secure their communication to client software using TLS or HTTPS connections that are terminated using a TLS private key, which corresponds to a certificate distributed to the clients. If the host is compromised, an attacker could obtain those private keys and spawn a fake service that successfully authenticates to the same clients, obtaining access to sensitive data, or enabling a Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) attack on the secure channel.
Encrypting Venafi Keys with Anjuna
Anjuna secures certificates and private keys issued and managed by Venafi by protecting them from insiders who might have access to the hosts running backend applications, such as web-servers or databases. Anjuna encrypts those private keys, such that they are only accessible within the enclave running the application and cannot be stolen by attackers gaining access to the host.
The result is the strongest full stack protection available. Anjuna’s “lift and shift” approach eliminates the need to work with ever-changing applications and software development kits (SDKs). And no changes to applications, recompilation, or operations are required.
