The digital identities used by machines – particularly the TLS certificates in use throughout your organization – are meant to authenticate machine-to-machine communications and then protect them through consistent, trusted encryption. When they fail, customers experience outages and security controls, like traffic inspection devices, stop protecting you.
But do you know enough about those certificates to know the protection is real? 95% of Global 5000 organizations lack visibility and intelligence about their certificates: How many are in use, and what types are they?
Which CAs issued them and who owns them internally? Without this visibility and intelligence, it’s impossible to then automate the certificate lifecycle tasks that prevent outages, stop breaches, and lose revenue.
In this session, we’ll look at:
• Why machine identity protection is needed – and it’s for much more than encryption alone
• The most common – and the most overlooked – reasons why getting visibility into certificates is so difficult
• How to assess the machine identity landscape in your own organization: are you protected or imperiled?
