See How Futurex and Venafi Expand Machine Identity Protection

by Venafi on June 19th, 2020

The Machine Identity Protection Development Fund continues to extend new levels of protection to the world’s largest and most security conscious organizations. Today, I’d like to feature an integration from Futurex, a leading provider of hardened enterprise-class data security solutions. Last week, Futurex and Venafi announced the integration of Futurex’s hardware security modules (HSMs), KMES Series 3 and Vectera Plus, with Venafi’s Trust Protection Platform. The integration of Machine Identity Protection with secure key generation and storage and integrated private PKI with FIPS 140-2 Level 3-validated HSMs enables enterprises to guard against key compromise, reduce fraud risk and protect against insider attacks.

How to Start Readying Your IT Ecosystem for Quantum Now

How to Start Readying Your IT Ecosystem for Quantum Now

by ISARA on June 16th, 2020

Quantum computers will deliver tremendous benefits, but they will also be able to break the cryptography underlying public key infrastructure (PKI). Quantum computing will be able to solve very specific hard problems that even the fastest supercomputers cannot solve in a reasonable amount of time. This poses an unprecedented problem for encryption that enterprises put their trust in today. Cryptography is the foundation of digital trust – a threat to cryptography is a serious threat to digital trust. In today's increasingly connected ecosystem, broken cryptography can result in unauthorized access to sensitive information, lack of control over connected devices, and potentially, pose great dangers. Consider cars, airplanes, satellites, energy grids. These durable, critical devices are highly vulnerable to attack, as these connected devices (IoT) have long in-field lives requiring their certificates to be updated. Imagine a state-sponsored attack hacking into the system and intercepting software security updates for a satellite. Long-lived devices need to be able to handle whatever cryptographic changes come our way.

Is Your Security Scalable?

Is Your Security Scalable?

by Futurex on June 12th, 2020

The ability to scale infrastructure and systems to match growth rates, increased workloads, market demands and spikes is critical. This has been tested in recent months with the hyper growth of video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and online shopping with the associated delivery of goods surging because of the “stay-at-home” requirements issued due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For many organizations, particularly retailers or those that provide services to other businesses, business resilience during the pandemic has meant an exponential increase in transactions requiring organizations to amp up their throughput and security at every level to account for the increase in volume.

“When building or upgrading enterprise cryptographic infrastructure in particular, organizations must prioritize scalable architectures and systems as a critical requirement for growing business environments," according to Adam Cason, director of product marketing at Futurex.
