Entrust Inc. has introduced Entrust Discovery, a solution designed to find, inventory and manages digital certificates across diverse systems to help prevent outages, data breach and non-compliance.
Digital certificates play an important role in business technology. Located on servers, devices, networks and communication platforms, they represent a necessary security technique for encrypting transmissions and securing digital identities in today’s enterprise.
Available as a managed service or a customer-deployed solution, Entrust Discovery aims to simplify the certificate discovery and inventory process. This saves the management effort of manually inventorying machines and networks, as well as tracking certificate expiration dates in spreadsheets or tables.
Within an organization’s environment, Entrust Discovery finds and inventories certificates that are exposed to a network service. Two separate components — Entrust Discovery Agent and Entrust Discovery Manager — collaborate to help organizations discover the risks caused by rogue or expiring certificates, and then subsequently assists in resolving these issues.
