Venafi Announces Adaptable Application Driver for Trust Protection Platform

New functionality integrates real-time key and certificate intelligence into cyber security solutions, applications and devices

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Venafi®, the leading provider of protection for cryptographic keys and digital certificates, today announced a new Adaptable Application Driver in the latest release of the Venafi Trust Protection Platform™. The Adaptable Application Driver dramatically simplifies the integration of the Venafi platform with any certificate-dependent, third-party application. This integration allows organizations to automate key and certificate provisioning and lifecycle management across their entire security technology environment. It enables users, partners, or system integrators to easily integrate the Venafi Trust Protection Platform with minimal programming expertise.

“The addition of this functionality means that we are the only solution that can provide turnkey orchestration of keys and certificates across the extended enterprise,” said Hari Nair, director of product management for the Venafi Trust Protection Platform. “Many organizations currently use manual processes to provision keys and certificates that are both error prone and time intensive. Our new solution makes real-time certificate provisioning and intelligence available to every enterprise device or application. Automating certificate provisioning and the lifecycle for certificate-dependent applications as well as integrating crucial, real-time intelligence with other security applications, dramatically improves an organization’s overall security posture and makes it much more difficult for cyber criminals to hide in encrypted traffic.”

The new Adaptable Application Driver allows the Venafi partner ecosystem to integrate Venafi certificate intelligence into a wide range of solutions. The Adaptable Application Driver has been leveraged by several Venafi partners across a variety of applications.
