Anjuna and Venafi Deliver New Way to Manage Machine Identities

Secure enclaves ensure secrets and key management are secured by default and inaccessible to anyone

Anjuna Security Inc, the enterprise enclaves company, announced a development partnership with Venafi that enables Venafi customers to use Anjuna’s secure enclaves solution that secures and assures the integrity of machine identities by default.

“Security teams who need to protect machine identities in cloud and DevOps pipelines are currently hampered by the limitations and complexity of integrating hardware security modules (HSMs),” according to Ayal Yogev, co-founder and CEO of Anjuna. “Secure enclaves offer a simple, flexible, and seamless alternative that both protect and assure the integrity of machine identities from creation, to distribution, storage and use by the Venafi system.”

“Anjuna software enables applications and data to work within the secure confines of an Anjuna Enterprise Enclave ‘as is’ virtually eliminating the possibility of data theft, manipulation or exposure,” Yogev noted. “It builds upon the hardware-grade security features in Intel® SGX, AMD SEV and AWS Nitro systems to make enclaving applications and data easy to integrate, deploy, and manage for both our enterprise customers and our software partners,” he added.

“We are pleased to have Anjuna join Venafi’s Machine Identity Management Development Fund,” said Kevin Bocek, vice president of security strategy and threat intelligence for Venafi. “By securing the individual application in a trusted execution environment, Anjuna gives security the freedom to rethink where and how sensitive applications using machine identities run, without rebuilding the application. Anjuna extends Venafi’s mission to eliminate friction between development and security teams. There’s no longer the need to worry about burdensome host access controls or inflexible security zones. Data, including Venafi machine identities and the applications that leverage them, are secured by default and inaccessible to anyone or any process.”

Simplifying and Securing Machine Identity Management

Venafi distributes private keys and certificates to client applications under its management. As with all software, if those hosts are compromised, an attacker could obtain those private keys, corrupting the integrity of the entire network of systems. These communications and systems benefit greatly from the hardware-grade protections.

When security teams deploy Venafi to manage their machine identities, they often consider hardware security modules (HSMs), which are complex to deploy, especially in cloud environments. Anjuna solves this same problem for DevOps, cloud and security teams by leveraging local processor security features to secure the software, networks and certificates that make up the Venafi system.

The resulting integration provides not only a simplified and more flexible deployment, but the strongest protection available, eliminating the possibility of an identity breach.
