Standardize Certificate Procurement and Enforce PKI Policy

Insufficient policy enforcement is a prime suspect in the existence of rogue, unknown, and non-compliant certificates. AppViewX’s policy creation and access control capabilities ensure that procurement follows standardized channels and all certificate operations adhere to policy.


Standardize Certificate Provisioning using Simple, Self-serviceable Automation Workflows

Standardizing certificate provisioning across all your business units is key to achieving total compliance. Using simple, low-code automation workflows, you can standardize and enable your teams to self-service certificate enrolment and provisioning across your heterogeneous infrastructure. This ensures that no unknown or rogue certificates enter your infrastructure to circumvent time-consuming enrolment processes. You can also extend these workflows to your DevOps teams through our APIs. Thereby allowing them to request, renew, push and delete certificates instantly.

Define Granular Role-Based Access Control and Enforce Business-Specific Policies

While maintaining visibility can help to identify threats early, weak certificates, unregulated access and insecure provisioning can still compromise the security of your application infrastructure. With AppViewX, you can easily administer policies – such as recommended cryptographic techniques, CAs and workflows – to eliminate rogue certificates. You can assign roles or inherit one from an AD, LDAP, RADIUS system, delegate access, control actions and apply granular visibility to either individual certificates or entire certificate groups to enable efficient provisioning. The certificates can then be grouped based on functionality or by their underlying policy group, all while being efficiently audited to ensure compliance.

Create Audit Trails for each User and Certificate or Key-related Activity

Despite tight controls, there are possibilities where unauthorized actions could cause unplanned certificate outages. With AppviewX, each certificate-related event is audited. From certificate issuance to certificate deletion, you can identify which user has performed a particular action at any point of time and if found to be unauthorized, you can plug that security hole immediately to prevent further damage. You can also subscribe to critical events via E-mail and SMS for quicker remediation.

Share Certificate and Key Compliance Statistics and Reports

Hundreds or even thousands of certificates secure your applications and your users every day. Each and every one of these certificates must follow your organizational standards to prevent any unforeseen events. AppViewX’s actionable dashboards help you evaluate the current state of your certificate infrastructure. Once you define your organizational policies, our platform can continuously validate your certificates on authorized CAs, trusted end-points and others to send you a compliance report periodically. You could also choose to view these reports on your SIEM dashboards such as Splunk.
