Credential Management Solutions

Deploying a sound credential management system is a critical step in the process of securing your systems and information.

Credential Management

The widespread use of digital and cryptographic credentials such as digital certificates raises the security bar for credential management systems. Authorities must be able to create and revoke credentials as customers and employees come and go or simply change roles, and as business processes and policies evolve. Furthermore, the rise of privacy regulations and other security mandates increases the need for organizations to demonstrate the ability to validate the identity of online consumers and internal privileged users. Deploying a sound credential management system—or several—is a critical step in the process of securing your systems and information.

Challenges Associated with Credential Management
  • Attackers that can gain control of your credential management system can issue credentials that make them an insider, potentially with privileges to compromise systems undetected.
  • Compromised credential management processes result in the need to re-issue credentials, which can be an expensive and time-consuming process.
  • Credential validation rates can vary enormously and can easily outpace the performance characteristics of a credential management system, jeopardizing business continuity.
  • Business application owners’ expectations around security and trust models are rising, and can expose credential management as a weak link that may jeopardize compliance claims.
