Strong authentication ensures that only authorized end-users are accessing sensitive data, servers, and other enterprise assets.
With GaraSign, customers can enforce granular security controls on a wide range of resources without needing to manually reconfigure servers or modify applications.
Username and password-based authentication is relatively easy to break via methods like social engineering, password stuffing, or simple brute force attacks. Use protocols such as SSH and mutual TLS to assign end-users unique digital identities and require key-based authentication whenever possible.
When using key-based authentication via mutual TLS or SSH, the enterprise must manage a large number of keys and certificates. To simplify management and strengthen security, all private keys should be stored in a centralized hardware security module (HSM) or key manager.
When a client needs to use a particular key, they send the request to GaraSign. GaraSign authenticates the client before interfacing with the HSM to perform the private key operation. As a result, the private keys always remain secured and granular security controls are easily enforced.
GaraSign supports a number of granular controls, including MFA, device authentication, approval workflows, and more. Because clients authenticate to GaraSign when they need to use a key, these granular controls can be enforced on a per-key or per-user basis with a few clicks from the GaraSign interface. There’s no need to reconfigure servers or applications.
With GaraSign, all digital identities and cryptographic keys are secured in a centrally-managed HSM. Authorized end-users can use the keys as needed by sending the request to GaraSign, which then authenticates the client according to the policy in place. GaraSign gives customers the ability to enforce granular controls, like MFA and device authentication, without needing to manually reconfigure servers and applications.
