The Future-ready Alternative To Keyfactor.

The rapid shift to containerized environments and DevOps means certificates that were once valid for five years are now valid for only a few hours. AppViewX CERT+ is built as a containerized application with the cloud in mind to meet the next generation’s needs. CERT+ is your ticket to escape from the trenches of archaic Windows-based technology and step into the agile world of cloud and containers.

Why AppViewX Is The Preferred CLM Solution For 100+ Fortune 500 Companies

Better discovery

AppViewX scans your network, applications, and other endpoints for TLS certificates and inventories them with details on their type, CA, and expiration dates. The discovery engine runs on isolated and segmented environments as well, making it ideal for the cloud. The platform also integrates with popular scanning solutions such as Qualys and Rapid7 and uses their data to automate. What’s more, users can control the speed and depth of discovery based on their bandwidth.

End-to-end certificate lifecycle automation

The platform monitors and presents the real-time statuses of certificates on dashboards and sends you alerts when a certificate nears expiry. But it doesn’t stop there. When a certificate is about to expire, AppViewX automatically renews it by requesting the CA for a new certificate, downloads it, and binds it to the endpoint, saving you from expensive outages. It also runs compliance checks against set policies and criteria and performs automated rollbacks in case of non-compliance.

Built-in database

AppViewX CERT+ comes with a built-in MongoDB to store certificate and key information. Unlike for Keyfactor, you don’t have to invest in an external DB and integrate it with your PKI solution, resulting in a significantly lower TCO.

Quick and easy upgrades

AppViewX follows a plugin-based microservice architecture - which means when a new device or CA is added, you don’t have to update the entire platform, just the plugins. This functionality is especially useful for cloud and container-based applications, where each certificate doesn’t last for more than a few hours and new vendors are added at an accelerated pace.

Granular control over PKI

Give multi-level teams fine-grained control over certificates and keys. Define granular role-based access control and approval hierarchies that prevent unchecked certificate requests, and leverage inbuilt audit systems to document every change made to your PKI. The possibility of unknown certificates expiring and causing outages is eliminated, adding layers of security and reliability.
