Keyfactor-Fortanix integration provides enhanced machine identity management


Keyfactor Inc., provider of machine and Internet of Things identity platforms, today announced a technology integration with Fortanix Inc. to enable enterprises and managed service providers to simplify and secure management machine identity.

Technology integration combines the benefits of certificate lifecycle automation with key protection in Fortanix Data Security Manager. According to the companies, with this combination, enterprises and MSPs can efficiently manage all machine identities across hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure while reducing complexity by ensuring that sensitive private keys remain protected.

Keyfactor’s Command service integrates directly with any public, private, or cloud-based certificate lifecycle automation, providing comprehensive discovery, policy enforcement, and certificate lifecycle automation. Fortanix DSM is supposed to ensure the secure generation and storage of the private keys associated with these certificates.

Key features and benefits of the joint solution include improved visibility and control, providing enterprise security and IT teams with a single window for discovery, management, and self-service enrollment for certificates in multi-vendor environments. Automated certificate renewal simplifies certificate renewal and provisioning across devices and workloads in hybrid and multicloud environments.

Private key protection ensures that only authorized users can access keys protected by multiple layers of defense, including Fortanix Confidential Computing and Intel SGX. The combined service also supports distributed architecture and is DevOps ready, allowing customers to support millions of keys and certificates with a highly scalable distributed architecture.

The combination between the two companies allows developers to easily integrate security into applications with native RESTful application programming interfaces and plugins.

“The use of public key infrastructure and certificates to securely authenticate digital identities has grown exponentially with the acceleration of cloud transformation,” said BJ Ferguson, vice president of channel for the North America at Keyfactor, in a press release. “Managing an increasing number of keys and certificates across multiple layers of technology with legacy solutions is a significant challenge in itself, let alone ensuring the protection of all private keys.”
