Organizations either allow users to handle certificates independently, or have a request approval process in place for certificate management. Once the certificates are obtained, they are not bothered with, which leads to their unanticipated expiry, invalid or rogue certificates sneaking into the network, and ultimately, to service downtime, or even security breaches.
To deal with these issues, SSL certificates deployed across the organization must be discovered, consolidated, and stored in a centralized repository, for easy access, organization, and management. Each self-signed certificate and certificate signing request that is created must be recorded with their details. This helps track the owner of each certificate, and, identify rogue, invalid, or expired certificates that are still active in the network.
Key Manager Plus helps manage the SSL certificates throughout their life-cycle, by providing a secure, centralized repository. You can view all relevant details of the certificate, track their history, and even import or export certificate files. All these actions are audited and, can be tracked to the respective users which helps administrators retain complete control of the SSL environment, and prevent the use of vulnerable certificates in the network.
Key Manager Plus is integrated with ManageEngine’s Password Manager Pro, to provide unified privileged identity management platform.
ManageEngine’s Key Manager Plus enables us to stay on top of SSL certificates for all of our websites. With Key Manager Plus, we’re able to monitor which certificates are nearing expiration and roll out new certificates in a timely manner.Ken Odibe Senior cloud infrastructure consultant, Sapphire systems.
