In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

AppViewX CERT+ is an SSH key lifecycle management and automation platform that can help enterprises establish centralized visibility of all SSH keys (both on-prem and in the cloud), enforce secure key management and also proactively mitigate persistent threats through automated SSH key rotation.

• END-TO-END AUTOMATION EXPERIENCE: AppViewX CERT+ stitches together various cyber-security tools from leading vendors to deliver an end-to-end automation experience. With AppViewX, users can control the entire certificate lifecycle, from certificate discovery, CSR generation, renewals, enrollment, installations, revocations, and monitoring with the click of a button.

• FLEXIBLE IMPLEMENTATION: AppViewX is one of the few players in the market that is built on a modular, microservices-based architecture that allows flexibility and upward scalability without the need for extensive background work to accommodate changes. It can be configured to be a part of any infrastructure and environments – on-premise, cloud-hosted, or hybrid.

• DELIVER VALUE FAST: Regardless of how many different certificate authorities are being used, or how many different cloud environments are part of the deployment, AppViewX can connect with them via application connectors and APIs, sync with them, and start to discover and manage certificates on all devices associated with the environment. The savings are in the employee hours saved by the consolidation and automation of certificate activities; and in the drastic reduction of certificate outages, data breaches due to vulnerable certificates, and PKI compliance issues. By automating certificate and key operations, enforcing SSL policy, and preventing the exposure of keys to external environments, AppViewX CERT+ is instrumental to the network security of organizations of all types and sizes, in any environment.

Brief Overview

Encryption has become standard for enterprises that want to secure their data and applications. When a cyber-attack happens, it’s common to blame the breach on a vulnerability inside a security device or service. However, the most common oversight leading to an attack happens to be a lapse in management of organization’s encryption mechanisms. SSL/TLS certificates are a good example of one such security service. Your data is only as secure as these certificates, and when mismanagement enables unauthorized access, organizations need to rethink their approach to certificate lifecycle management.

AppViewX CERT+ is a certificate management suite, allowing for end-to-end automation of key and certificate lifecycles across multi-cloud environments. By providing extensive visibility and control over certificate infrastructures, it prevents outages caused by expired or vulnerable TLS / SSL certificates. In addition to automating certificate processes and monitoring environments, it also protects keys, delivers compliance, and allows for role-based self-servicing of PKI. The platform is CA-agnostic and out-of-the-box, allowing for seamless functioning across diverse network environments, in synergy with major PKI, encryption, and security product vendors. AppViewX makes certificate management streamlined and efficient, allowing for endless upward scalability and cryptographic agility.

AppViewX CERT+ integrates with a variety of leading cybersecurity service vendors, including HSMs, CAs, Vaults, ITSMs, firewalls, DevOps tools, CMDBs, certificate endpoints, ADCs, and more, enabling SecOps to seamlessly incorporate certificate management into their security infrastructure. By automating critical certificate operations and providing full visibility over PKI across multiple CA vendors and multiple device types through certificate discovery, AppViewX serves to eliminate expiry-based outages and manual error, thereby bettering security posture, saving time, and eliminating needless expenditure in the form of remediation measures, fines, and loss of business.
