We are excited to announce the second episode of our podcast series, Secure by Design, featuring Marc Airo-Farulla, Regional Sales Director at AppViewX. In this episode, we delve into the intricacies of certificate lifecycle management and how AppViewX can automate this crucial process. Additionally, we’ll explore how certificate lifecycle management is an integral part of your organisation’s cybersecurity strategy.
What is Certificate Lifecycle Management?
Certificate lifecycle management involves the process of managing digital certificates throughout their entire lifespan. This includes the initial creation, issuance, and installation of certificates, monitoring and tracking their expiration dates, and renewing or revoking them when necessary. Certificates play a vital role in ensuring secure communications, verifying the identities of machines, and maintaining trust in the digital ecosystem.
Why is Certificate Lifecycle Management Important for Cybersecurity?
Proper certificate lifecycle management is essential for maintaining a robust cybersecurity strategy for several reasons:
- Security: Outdated, expired, or unmanaged certificates can leave your organization vulnerable to cyberattacks. Ensuring that all certificates are up-to-date and properly managed helps to secure your digital infrastructure.
- Compliance: Many industry regulations and standards require organisations to maintain proper certificate management practices. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in fines, penalties, and reputational damage.
- Trust: Digital certificates are a foundation of trust in the online world. Effective certificate management practices help to maintain trust in your organisation’s digital presence.
