With the increasing importance of software in every industry, most companies are now in the software development business. Code signing is a critical security control that helps businesses, and their customers, know that software can be trusted. While code signing has provided this software protection for decades, cybercriminals continue to seek vulnerabilities in the code signing process, threatening the reputation of a business. In this video, Thales and Venafi discuss how these evolving security risks can negatively affect a business, and what you can do today to protect yourself.
|Thales and Venafi Discuss Code Signing|
Today’s large enterprises operate across many boundaries, acting as a virtual organization in multiple cities and countries. One department that commonly combines efforts from widely dispersed individuals is software development. DevOps, or the processes that enable application development and operations to be combined, adds complexity and security risks not previously seen when programmers were all on-site, behind a firewall, and with access only to development environments. Along with the agility and scale that DevOps brings, if not implemented correctly, DevOps processes can be impeded and hacked, adding development time and security risks to the end product.
Addressing this growing need to secure enterrise-class DevOps, Thales has partnered with Venafi and HashiCorp to provide an end-to-end solution for implementing a secure DevOps environment.

Venafi Next-Gen Code Signing and Thales HSMs deliver a seamless integration that not only secures private code signing keys but also secures the process by enforcing industry-accepted best practices. Together, these solutions secure the storage of private code signing keys, automate code signing policy enforcement, manage the full lifecycle of code signing certificates, separate code signing roles and responsibilities, and provide a full audit trail of code signing activities.
To help you reduce data breach threats, meet compliance requirements, and simplify machine identity protection, Venafi and Thales have combined the benefits of automated key and certificate lifecycle management, together with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module (HSM) key protection. As an organization, you now have full visibility, centralized control, and trust over your HTTPS web application keys and certificates. All keys are generated, stored, and used for SSL/TLS within the safe confines of the Thales HSMs to reduce the risk of unauthorized data access and loss.
