Criminals want to gain trusted status and go undetected. This makes keys and certificates a prime target, which are blindly trusted by most of today’s Global 5000 enterprises. Criminals steal and compromise keys and certificates that are not properly protected, and use them to circumvent security controls—to hide in encrypted traffic, deploy malware, and steal data. these uniquely identify webservers, software, mobile devices, apps, admins, and even airplanes This has become the attack of choice.
Current security controls are being undermined. Compromised SSL/TLS, SSH and mobile certificates and keys undermine data loss prevention, next-gen firewalls, strong authentication, sandboxing and other security systems. Attackers 1) mask their true identity using keys and certificates and 2) hide their actions by encrypting data which means you can’t look inside for threats. Protecting keys and certificates eliminates both of these blind spots and makes all security systems stronger.
