Venafi signs StarLink as strategic distributor
Compromised keys and certificates are compromising organisations, says Advani.

Security specialist value-added distributor StarLink has been signed as strategic distributor for Venafi's range of solutions to protect crytographic keys and digital certificates.

Under the deal, which covers the Middle East, Turkey and Africa, StarLink will provide its reseller partners with Venafi solutions to target the enterprise and government sectors.

Venafi is a specialist in Next-Generation Trust Protection (NGTP), delivering solutions to protect the cryptographic keys and digital certificates which are used to authenticate and enable data transmissions.

As part of an enterprise infrastructure protection strategy, Venafi Director prevents attacks on trust with automated discovery and intelligent policy enforcement, detects and reports on anomalous activity and increased threats, and remediates errors and attacks by automatically replacing keys and certificates.

Venafi Threat Center provides research and threat intelligence for trust-based attacks. Venafi customers are among the world's most demanding, security-conscious Global 2000 organisations in financial services, insurance, high tech, telecommunications, aerospace, healthcare and retail.

"For too long organisations have blindly trusted keys and certificates and have little visibility into their threat risk exposure," said Gregory Webb, Venafi vice president of Marketing. "Malicious actors have taken note of this blind trust, and use it nefariously against organisations who have no ability to detect anomalies or to respond to attacks on trust. The results are clear: terabytes of valuable information and IP are being pilfered from them before the compromise is even detected. We are excited to partner with StarLink to help organisations in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa respond to and remediate these trust-based attacks," he added.

Avinash Advani, director Business Strategy, StarLink said: "The millions of dollars companies spend on perimeter-based security solutions every year are unfortunately not solving the problem of compromised keys and certificates, which provide cyber-criminals unfettered trusted access and status. With Venafi, we can now empower enterprises across the regions we cover to reduce the risk of malicious attacks on trust with complete visibility into key and certificate inventories and end-to-end automation of security and control processes."
