Stay Compliant with Evolving Data Privacy Laws and Regulations

In the financial services industry, data is wealth. Millions of transactions involving millions of dollars happen every day, and data in the wrong hands can bring an entire economy down.
Regulations such as the global PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (in the US), and the EU’s overarching General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) all aim to protect customer data and curb data breaches. Financial services companies that do not comply with these regulations face severe penalties, and often never fully recover financially and reputationally. One of the largest data breaches in history, Equifax’s, cost the company over a billion dollars in penalty and settlement, and is still talked about today.

The regulations revolve around data storage, data encryption at rest and in transit, vulnerability and risk management, and resiliency, all of which involve PKI and symmetric keys. Here’s how AppViewX CERT+ guarantees compliance to all data protection regulations-

Certificate and Key Lifecycle management:

Digital certificates are the cornerstone of PKI. CERT+ automates X.509 certificate lifecycle management end-to-end, from discovery to enrollment, renewal, and revocation, with native, out-of-the-box automation workflows. Its advanced monitoring and alerting mechanism, coupled with protocol-based automation, eliminates outages and breaches due to unplanned certification expirations.

Protection Against Data Breaches:

CERT+’s next-gen automation capabilities allow certificates and keys to have shorter lifespans, bringing down the possibility of a compromise and preventing data breaches. Tight integrations with HSMs and KMS (Key Management Services) provide certificates and keys the highest possible levels of protection.

Vulnerability and Risk Management:

CERT+ scans the network in real-time and alerts security personnel of potential risks and vulnerabilities. The solution’s policy-based, context-aware automation engine applies remediation workflows such as revoking a rogue certificate or destroying a compromised key, along with the necessary validation checks.

High Availability and Resiliency:

AppViewX CERT+ comes packaged with a NoSQL database that can be replicated in no time in the event of a failure or unexpected shutdown. This makes the solution highly available, which means the network remains protected with its certificates and keys intact, no matter what happens.

AppViewX Cert+ is a great tool for certificate lifecycle management. It integrates with many of the top technologies and has great ease of use.
