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 a digital 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.
Cloud and DevOps
Digital transformation is changing the way applications are getting packaged and delivered to customers. From using multi-cloud, heterogeneous environments for delivering applications to using rapid CI/CD environments for packaging them, agility has become the primary focus for any enterprise. This focus has inadvertently created challenges for teams to incorporate critical security measures such as implementing a well-documented, policy-based, compliant certificate infrastructure to secure access to these applications. And with AppViewX, you can simplify the certificate enrollment process while also ensuring strict policy compliance.
