Simplify certificate lifecycle management across complex Kubernetes environments with AppViewX KUBE+
Security teams have limited visibility and control over the certificates used by DevOps teams to protect code repositories, within CI/CD pipelines and across containerized environments.
Ad hoc certificate provisioning leads to inconsistencies, misconfigurations and non-compliant certificates that create security weaknesses and compliance issues.
Requesting, issuing and binding short-lived certificates manually is slow, time consuming and impossible to scale across multi-cloud and multi-cluster environments.
Lack of direct integrations force developers to work outside of their DevOps tool sets, further hindering productivity and continuous deployment.
Manually requesting and managing short-lived certificates for daily operations is a significant burden to DevOps teams that are already strapped for time and resources.
For the sake of speed, developers often use self-signed certificates, unapproved CAs or weak crypto standards—violating corporate policies. Manual certificate provisioning is error-prone and can leave an entire system vulnerable to a cyberattack.
Security teams are challenged to keep up with the fast-paced demands of DevOps, while trying to maintain visibility and enforce compliant PKI policies.
DevOps teams struggle to balance development timelines with rigid security requirements.
Rogue and mismanaged certificates lead to unexpected certificate expirations causing outages and security weaknesses, which can impact operations and lead to significant financial losses.
