Venafi, United Airlines to Present at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

Learn How United Airlines Improved Security and Agility Through Improved Encryption Key and Digital Certificate Management and Policy Controls

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH and NATIONAL HARBOR, MD--(Marketwire - Jun 11, 2012) - Venafi, the inventor and market leader in Enterprise Key and Certificate Management (EKCM) solutions, today announced that United Airlines and Venafi will present at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit. The session, titled "Key Management Takes Off at United Airlines for Improved Security and Agility," will provide a real-world case study, best-practice recommendations and cover lessons learned. Speakers will also address the operational, security and compliance risks of poor key and certificate management and suggest remediation strategies.

As the world's largest airline with global operations, United Airlines leverages thousands of cryptographic keys and certificates for secure business computing. The use of SSL certificates has grown within United -- through organic growth, new platforms and M&A activity -- at a tremendous rate. Costly events highlighted critical flaws in manual processes, and drove efforts to increase critical system availability. Through thoughtful planning and investigation United has gone from reactive to becoming a proactive force for automated PKI management and security best practices. This session details lessons learned and best practices. Learn more at the Gartner website:
