Entrust Discovery

Certificate Discovery & Management Solution
Organizations are adding more types of digital certificates — for communication, Web security, hardware authentication and more — to properly secure and protect enterprise environments. 

But as various types of digital certificates are introduced to an organization, it becomes more difficult to track and manage certificates — particularly if they’re issued from different certification authorities. 

Entrust Discovery streamlines this process with a solution that finds, inventories and manages digital certificates across diverse systems to prevent outages, data breach and non-compliance.

Avoid Costly Application Outages
Expiring certificates can be expensive. Entrust Discovery helps organizations avoid costly application outages by inventorying your digital certificates, and providing a redundant system of e-mail notifications to responsible parties.

Notifications made easy. Entrust Discovery provides expiry notification e-mails to certificate owners to ensure they are aware of expiring certificates. And with built-in backup e-mails to owners, as well as system administrators as you get closer to expiry, you can ensure certificates are not expiring unexpectedly.

Protecting Your Organization
Even if you’re an expert at compliance requirements and industry regulations, you may not have the tools or information to ensure your organization is complying properly.

Proving compliance. Your organization most likely has stringent security policies that adhere to internal, industry or federal regulation. But if an organization doesn’t have the tools or information to prove policy is being followed, non-compliance risks will arise. 

Entrust Discovery provides an inventory of encryption assets that helps prove your organization is, in fact, following a given policy.

Data breach defense. Is your organization confident that communication channels are secure? What if your security policy requires a change to increase security (e.g., ensuring all 1024-bit rooted keys are properly upgraded to 2048-bit rooted keys)? Entrust Discovery quickly identifies potential problems and helps the user easily correct any issues. 

The solution helps identify and replace those vulnerable certificates, ensuring you are being properly defended from malicious attacks. And by inventorying your encryption assets, you can ensure that transmission data is not left unencrypted. This helps prevents the exchange of information from being illegally intercepted without your knowledge.

Certificate Inventory
Efficient inventory. By simplifying the certificate discovery and inventory process, you save the management effort of manually inventorying machines and tracking certificate expiries in complex spreadsheets or tables.

Avoid unexpected outages. No matter their type or origin, digital certificates expire. From a missed e-mail notification to a previously undiscovered certificate, it’s not difficult to lose track of certificate expiry dates. And it’s even more challenging to track the use of unknown certificate copies. Entrust Discovery identifies these risks and makes it easy to rectify any issues — all from within an easy-to-use interface.

Making the Discovery 
Entrust Discovery quickly finds and inventories certificates that are exposed to a network service within your environment. Entrust Discovery Agent and Entrust Discovery Manager collaborate to help organizations discover any risks caused by rogue or expiring certificates, and facilitate problem resolution in conjunction with the user.
