Welcome to our Virtual Panel series where we discuss all things cybersecurity and PKI, and how businesses can benefit from them. These interactive sessions are chaired by leaders in cybersecurity and business, and allow attendees to interact and engage with them in every 45-minute session. Make sure you drop by!
In this first session, we’re tackling a hot topic: what will cybersecurity look like once the pandemic passes? Among the several paradigm-shifting changes to lifestyles, none stand out more than remote work. Touted as the ‘new normal’ for employees worldwide, remote workforces are also a cause of concern for security leaders and CISOs, who are slowly becoming aware of the threats this may pose to their security strategy,
Cybersecurity policy and PKI need to evolve and become fully agile. The only way to do that is automation, and that is the key to setting up post-COVID security strategy.
Key Takeaways -
• The impact of COVID-19 on cybersecurity
• Emerging Trends
• The relevance of PKI in making security remote-ready
• How can certificate lifecycle automation help?
• Case Study

Over the past decade, PKI has come to be recognized as the gold standard for protecting information and networks using encryption. The phenomenon of digital transformation has influenced PKI as well, and every digital system (and a few physical ones) use PKI as their first layer of protection against cyber threats. Their ubiquity and sheer volume has given rise to several new requirements: availability, scalability, and crypto-agility. In other words, they need to be as robust as they are lightweight, and easy to upgrade and maintain. Legacy PKI does not offer users some or all of these features.
Today’s high-growth enterprises require a PKI that can be scaled rapidly, and does not require significant setup to do so. There is also a pressing need to automate certificate processes and diligently manage them – a PKI is only as robust as the efficiency of its management.
In this webinar with AppViewX, PrimeKey, and SecureMetric, we’re discussing how an organization can achieve just that. We’ll go over how you can set up (or migrate to) a high-assurance, multi-user, scalable PKI – PrimeKey – using AppViewX’s certificate lifecycle automation suite. We’ll also go over how the deployment and/or migration processes can be shrunken from months to days, and how certificate and key lifecycles can be managed from end-to-end from a single interface, and automated, too.
Use Cases Discussed:
1.Seamless PKI Migration and Management
2.PKI-backed remote work enablement and security posture enhancement
•How to set up a high-assurance, scalable on-prem PKI
•How to migrate from any legacy PKI to PrimeKey EJBCA
•Discovery, monitoring, and management of certificates and keys
•Automation of key and certificate processes

Early this year, the National Security Agency (NSA - the national-level intelligence agency of the United States Department of Defense) emphasized the elimination of obsolete TLS protocol configurations by federal agencies. It further urged all network owners and operators to follow suit.
The TLS protocol encrypts and authenticates communication between servers and clients, and TLS versions are periodically updated to outrun attacks on the communication channels - the current latest version being TLS 1.3. Attacks happen when an organization fails to implement the latest TLS version quickly enough. Sometimes, even organizations that have implemented the latest TLS version face attacks due to weak cipher suites, outdated key exchange mechanisms, and poor TLS certificate management.
In this webinar, Alon Nachmany, Director of Customer Success at AppViewX and a cybersecurity expert, explains how organizations can upgrade to the latest TLS version and ensure their certificates and keys are in good condition, with minimal service disruption.

A few key points of discussion will be:
• Discovering obsolete TLS configuration and expiring certificates
• Achieving compliance and cryptographic agility with fast upgrades
• Automating key and certificate lifecycle management
Infrastructure complexity is the root cause of several operational issues, such as prolonged service delivery times, troubleshooting delays, security loopholes, etc. In this webinar, you'll learn how to overcome this complexity by making IT infrastructure invisible, and achieve the desired results without sweating over the process.
The 'Big Four' providers of internet browsers (Mozilla, Google, Microsoft, and Apple) have finally decided to deprecate TLS 1.0 and 1.1 owing to their obsolescence and vulnerability to security exploits, starting early 2020. What's more, the PCI has already stopped support for TLS 1.0, and strongly recommends the usage of TLS 1.2 and upwards. If your business and its applications still rely on TLS 1.0 and 1.1, this means you have to upgrade to the latest version, ASAP. Why? Because not doing so will leave you open to a plethora of security vulnerabilities.
Of course, a large scale TLS upgrade comes with challenges, risks, and processes of its own, and in this webinar, we'll walk you through them. At the end of this session, you'll know everything you need to know if you're considering an upgrade, and a lot more.
-The challenges of migrating to TLS 1.2 or 1.3
-Migration recommendations and best practices
-How your PKI needs to adapt to a new TLS version
-How AppViewX accelerates the process of replacing your TLS 1.0-dependent certificates

COVID-19 has generated an enormous spike in demand for storage and compute, forcing hospitals to expand their existing network or move a chunk of their patient data to their cloud.
While cloud adoption in itself is a good thing, the explosion of devices and workloads across distributed systems, the need for remote access, and the pressures of ensuring speed and availability might have led to security taking a backseat. Even if a healthcare provider has all the required security measures in place, attacks are getting increasingly sophisticated (as seen recently), and still leaves them vulnerable.
In this webinar, Alon Nachmany, Director of Customer Success at AppViewX and a former CISO, shares his insights on how healthcare providers can enhance cybersecurity, enforce compliance in the face of uncertainty, and recover relatively unscathed in the event of an attack.
Some key highlights will be:
• Detecting and sealing vulnerabilities with proactive monitoring and auto-remediation
• Securing endpoints across distributed systems with key and certificate lifecycle automation
• Streamlining and expediting data/device backup and restore for compliance

As a popular meme hilariously put it, [who led the digital transformation of your company? (A) CIO (B) CTO (C) COVID-19] 2020 and COVID-19 have forced enterprises to rethink their IT strategy. Remote work, increased online activity, and the need to ensure business continuity have all got IT leaders scrambling to digitalize business.
At the heart of this digitalization frenzy is application delivery. With the boom of online business, application traffic and the need for new, feature-rich applications are at an all-time high. Availability, scalability, and agility in application delivery and deployment is the need of the hour, which has led most enterprises to jump onto the cloud bandwagon. However, the cloud and its various avatars (private, public, multi, hybrid) come with its set of opportunities and challenges.
