Automated Certificate Management With GaraSign

In a large enterprise environment, it can be difficult to maintain visibility on all digital certificates. If some certificates are not properly accounted for, outages can easily occur, resulting in real financial losses for the enterprise. Outages that affect customers can also impact brand reputation and consumer confidence.

With GaraSign, preventing outages is a frictionless, automated process. All certificates and keys remain secured in a centrally-managed hardware security module (HSM) or key manager, ensuring full visibility at all times. HSM certificates are automatically renewed as needed to avoid downtime. Security leaders can grant, revoke, manage, and audit permissions on a per-key or per-user basis from a single HSM interface.

Certificates are scattered across the enterprise but must be frequently renewed.

How do you avoid outages?

Enterprises must manage a plethora of certificates. In most cases, both hardware security module (HSM) certificates and the corresponding private keys are distributed out to endpoint devices, presenting potential cybersecurity risks and challenges with maintaining full visibility.

In addition, each certificate has its own deadline for renewal, making it difficult to ensure each one is renewed prior to its expiration. Outages are costly, time-consuming to fix, and damaging to consumer trust in the enterprise’s brand.

Limited Visibility

In most environments, certificates are distributed out to endpoint devices, making it difficult to keep a complete inventory of all of them.

Asynchronous Renewal

Certificates must be periodically renewed, but the timelines differ and each certificate must be renewed before it expires to avoid an outage.

Security Vulnerabilities

While many HSM certificate management solutions distribute the private keys to clients, this approach creates serious vulnerabilities.

GaraSign automates hardware security module (HSM) certificate renewal to prevent outages while private keys remain centrally secured and managed.

Centralized Management Certificates & Private Keys

When you deploy GaraSign, all certificates and private keys are centrally managed within the HSM. This enables cybersecurity leaders to set and enforce policy from a single interface.

Complete Visibility

All certificates and keys secured are managed from a centralized interface, so it’s easy to maintain an exhaustive inventory of all HSM certificates and perform necessary audits.

While the certificates are sent to clients, a copy of each HSM certificate is stored centrally, and the private keys are never distributed to endpoint devices. This approach improves cybersecurity and simplifies outage prevention. 

Centralized Security
For All Private Keys

With GaraSign, certificates are distributed to clients, but the sensitive private keys are always secured in a non-exportable state in a centralized HSM or key manager. The private keys never leave the secure confines of the HSM or key manager.

Automated Certificate Renewals

GaraSign automatically renews HSM certificates before they expire, avoiding costly outages. This process occurs without any direct involvement from cybersecurity leaders, simplifying certificate lifecycle management for the enterprise.

Advanced Cybersecurity Features

GaraSign enables the enterprise to easily and seamlessly enforce granular cybersecurity controls, including multi-factor authentication (MFA), device authentication, approval workflows, IP address whitelisting, notifications, and more. 

HSM Certificate Management Made Easy

GaraSign simplifies hardware security module (HSM) certificate management, ensuring that outages never occur with very little manual input from your cybersecurity team. In addition, GaraSign keeps private keys secured in a centralized HSM server at all times to improve cybersecurity posture and make audits a painless process.

Automated Certificate Renewal

All certificates are automatically renewed before the expire, preventing costly outages and network downtime.

Centralized HSM Management

All HSM certificates and private keys are generated and managed centrally. The policy can be set from a single HSM interface.

Private Key Security

While certificates are distributed out to endpoint devices, the private keys always remain secured and non-exportable in an HSM high security module.

Granular Security Controls

Granular controls, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and device authentication, can be enforced with just a few clicks.

A Unified Certificate Solution

GaraSign provides automated certificate management for all customers who deploy the HSM platform for at least one use case.

Simplified Audits

Audits can be conducted at any time. Audits can be performed globally, for a specific certificate, or a specific user.
