ManageEngine adds SSL certificate management to privileged identity management suite
Key Manager Plus centralises control of SSL certificates, provides visibility into SSL environment
ManageEngine has announced SSL certificate management support in Key Manager Plus, its web-based solution for managing digital keys.
Available immediately, the new version of Key Manager Plus provides visibility and centralised control over the entire life cycle of SSL certificates across any network and helps prevent downtime, compliance issues and security breaches.
Managing a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) environment can be daunting when organisations use a large number of SSL certificates issued by different vendors with varying validity periods. On the other hand, SSL certificates left unmonitored and unmanaged could expire, or rogue/invalid certificates could be used. Both scenarios could lead to service downtime or display of error messages that would destroy customer trust in data security and, in extreme cases, even result in security breaches. Key Manager Plus simplifies and automates SSL certificate management and helps overcome these issues.
“Managing SSL certificates is often the most overlooked function by IT organizations until disaster strikes, such as the use of an outdated cipher bringing reputation and financial loss to enterprises,” said Rajesh Ganesan, Director of Product Management at ManageEngine. “Now, Key Manager Plus helps IT teams prepare for and prevent disasters by automating critical key management functions. While the market is abound with tools serving very specific key management needs, it is difficult to find a complete solution that manages all types of digital keys. Key Manager Plus fills that void with a one-stop solution for managing all digital identities.”
With the latest enhancements to Key Manager Plus, the privileged identity management suite from ManageEngine gives users the tools needed to consolidate, control, manage, monitor and audit the entire life cycle of all types of privileged identities — passwords, SSH keys and SSL certificates alike. The suite also includes Password Manager Pro, the company’s privileged password manager for enterprises that need privileged account management, remote access management and session management.
