Vormetric Vault helps organizations overcome the challenges associated with managing increasingly critical digital certificates, encryption keys and other security objects.

Certificate management has never been an easy task.

  • Certificates proliferate – Increasingly permeating communications both inside your perimeter and over the web.  Business units tend to buy them as needed, and then implement without authorization or regard for strength, regulatory compliance or best practices. 
  • Certificates expire unexpectedly - Bringing down critical applications and web properties
  • Untracked certificates - Can lead to an internal crisis when an application failure includes loss of the certificate.  Without an easily identified backup of the cert, critical applications can be down for unacceptable periods.

The encryption keys that secure applications, file systems, databases and other assets are another facet of the problem.

  • PCI, SOX and other standards require minimum key strengths – Weak encryption can result in loss of regulatory compliance and subsequent loss of certification, business and trust
  • Improperly secured keys are easy targets once a hacker gets behind the firewall – allowing them access to critical applications, protected data, and exposing your organization to a possible data breach incident or loss of critical intellectual property
