SSH Key Management and Automation
AppViewX SSH+ is a one-stop solution for managing and automating SSH keys in an infrastructure. It enables teams to discover, create, provision, rotate and secure SSH keys automatically while ensuring policy compliance across networks. It helps an enterprise enforce access controls and monitor key usage through a single console and proactively prevents key misuse. SSH+ can manage and automate an SSH key’s lifecycle on a platform regardless of its location, whether on-premises or in the cloud.
Maintaining an inventory of only active keys in your infrastructure can help NetOps stay ahead of the curve by identifying misuse before it is too late. SSH+ can help you discover keys from servers, ADCs and client devices on premises or in the cloud instantly and keep your inventory updated with a midnight sync feature.
When an infrastructure inventory includes thousands of keys and hosts, attempting to take a comprehensive list can get messy. Our holistic view graphically represents the information tied to each key, such as associated hosts and accounts, to make management simple. This view also allows users to add or delete host/client devices and push, download, rotate or delete keys without compromising necessary workflows.
A work order-based mechanism during key creation or modification applies the checks needed to avoid key proliferation. With SSH+, keys can be created using best-in-class encryption algorithms with passphrase protection, then pushed to the required hosts automatically. And, through the automated rotation of SSH keys, unauthorized users with access to critical systems can be permanently removed.
All keys are not created equal. Some protect access to mission-critical application systems while others protect access to less-important testing environments. With SSH+, keys scan be grouped based on functionality and required policies (such as recommended cryptographic techniques and workflows) can be mapped appropriately to enable easier management.
Providing privileged access to one-time users for a finite amount of time can be challenging when managed manually. With SSH+, users have the power to control user access to these systems automatically. Our RBAC’s tight integration with a user’s LDAP ensures that the necessary teams have a granular view of key groups, as well as the ability to monitor policy violations and unauthorized key usage.
Having one application to create and manage SSH keys and another to use them to access your systems can be counter-productive. Get direct access to all target systems on-premises or in the cloud within the same console to ensure seamless user experience and superior session tracking on all supported devices.
