About this talk

Every company is now a “software” company, so the attack on SolarWinds not only marks a new generation of software supply chain attacks but demonstrates an industry-wide vulnerability. This attack was different in the level of sophistication, stealth and patience from earlier similar attacks. As a result, over 18,000 SolarWinds customers were infected with SUNBURST malware, including multiple US federal agencies. Shortly after, Mimecast was found to have been breached by the same attack.Digitally signing software (code signing) is the critical component in building and delivering software that can be trusted by end users. Yes, SolarWinds was signing their software. But what went so wrong? Our panel of experts will explore what happened, the approach the attackers took, and how you need to change your thinking (and your tactics) to avoid the same fate. Register today!

There are two actors on a network: people and machines. People rely on usernames and passwords to identify themselves and gain access to machines, applications and devices. Machines use digital keys and certificates to authenticate for secure machine-to-machine communication. While organizations spend billions of dollars each year on identity and access management and protecting usernames and passwords, very little is spent on protecting machine identities, which is essential to securing critical systems and data. The Venafi Platform delivers the machine identity intelligence and automation necessary to automatically safeguard the flow of information to trusted machines and prevent communication with untrusted ones—all at machine speed and scale.
