Topic: How to protect your machine identities
Speaker: Ivan Wallis, Venafi


The power of machines is a big change in the business world. The rise of machines is dramatically reshaping the IT and security landscape. People rely on user names and passwords to identify themselves and to gain access to machines, applications and devices. But machines don't. Machine identities are established using digital certificates and cryptographic keys. These critical security assets control machine - to - machine identity and access management. All organizations rely on keys and certificates to keep communications between machines secure and private. Therefore Keys and certificates are the foundation for securing commerce, keeping communications safe and private, and establishing trust between connecting systems. Come learn how to protect your machine identities.
