Certificate discovery platform helps organizations find, inventory and
manage digital certificates via premises or cloud models
DALLAS, Jan. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Entrust Inc. expands its certificate discovery solution, Entrust Discovery, by broadening search capabilities for digital certificates residing
within Microsoft's Cryptographic APIs (CAPI). And now with more than 25
basic or custom policy alert fields, Entrust Discovery is more
convenient, offers stronger compliance tools and redefines ease-of-use
for certificate management.
"Understanding that today's organization often manages complex
certificate environments, we provide more methods of discovering
certificates and enhance the policy options once under management,"
said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "Entrust Discovery builds on the core platform to make it easier to
manage a full certificate environment — regardless of certificate type
Entrust Discovery assists organizations in gaining a complete
perspective of deployed certificates. The easy-to-use solution finds,
inventories and manages digital certificates across diverse systems to
help prevent outages, data breach and non-compliance.
The solution now offers more policy alert fields, including issuer DN,
expiry status, subject DN, key (e.g., RSA 2048), time valid, subject
alt names (SAN) and certificate signature method. Where an organization
can truly embrace the power of Entrust Discovery is via the use of new
custom policy fields.
Taking advantage of the new Entrust Discovery options, organizations may
choose to run monthly, weekly, daily or even hourly scans that compare
against established — and even customized — policies. Organizations can
tailor policy alert fields to provide notifications for any detail,
which could include something as simple as the certificate owner's name
or email address, to more advanced traits such as location or upgrade
"Whether from a day-to-day or long-term standpoint, Entrust's discovery
and inventory features completely streamline our certificate management
process," said Yodlee's Manohar Nayak, a network security director for
the California-based online-banking service. "While we believed to have
a good understanding of our certificate landscape, Entrust helped us be
certain. This adds peace of mind that certificates won't expire and is
invaluable during compliance and security audits."
Available as a managed service (cloud model) or a customer-deployed
solution, Entrust Discovery simplifies the certificate discovery and
inventory process. This saves the management effort of manually
inventorying machines and networks, as well as tracking certificate
expiry dates in complicated spreadsheets or tables.
Within an organization's environment, Entrust Discovery quickly finds
and inventories certificates. Three separate components — Entrust
Discovery Agent, Entrust Discovery CAPI Scanner and Entrust Discovery
Manager — collaborate to help organizations discover the risks caused
by rogue or expiring certificates, and then subsequently assists in
resolving these issues.
