Venafi joins with DigiCert for machine identity protection alliance for large-scale enterprise PKI

Venafi, provider of machine identity protection, and DigiCert, vendor of TLS/SSL, IoT and other PKI solutions, announced on Thursday a new, deeper integration that simplifies and automates complex machine identity programs for demanding, security-conscious organizations. The combined solution enables organizations to customize and orchestrate public key infrastructure (PKI) and machine identity protection at machine speed and scale.

The integrated solution leverages DigiCert’s globally dispersed, modern OCSP infrastructure and a deep API integration with Venafi’s industry-leading machine identity protection platform. The new, adaptable driver allows customers to access a rich set of new features from DigiCert CertCentral.

Mutual customers can customize specific features, from fully automating certificate provisioning to enforcing internal policies, allowing them to address industry regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA and GDPR as well as demanding use cases.

The integrated solution also simplifies the integration of machine identity protection across a wide variety of systems and allows customers to fulfill high-value certificate requests in seconds. Venafi solutions support the most popular CertCentral features out-of-the box.

The integration provides full visibility into the demand, usage and workflow of certificate services; reduces risk with automated policy and workflows, including configurable approval and authorization, and detailed logging; achieves compliance for workflow approvals, authorization and authentication; and supports the full certificate lifecycle from request, issuance, and renewal to revocation.

“The rapid adoption of DevOps, microservices, cloud, and IoT requires a new level of technical sophistication and innovation to deliver protection for all machine identities,” said Kevin Bocek, vice president of security strategy and threat intelligence for Venafi. “The Global 5000 are looking for a certificate provider that tightly integrates with the Venafi Platform and provides them with the confidence of a complete solution. DigiCert is the leading CA of choice for large enterprises.”

“DigiCert enjoys a long-standing history of collaboration and integration with Venafi, and we share mutual enterprise customers that benefit from their robust platforms and services,” said Dan Timpson, chief technology officer to DigiCert. “In an era when enterprises face increasing threats from a growing landscape of connected devices and agile deployments, Venafi provides leading solutions for addressing machine identity and digital certificate management. We are looking for additional ways to work together to support enterprise customers.”
