Webcast: Gaps In SSH Security Create an Open Door for Attackers

Please join us on Thursday, Oct. 30th at 1PM ET for a special webcast: Gaps In SSH Security Create an Open Door for Attackers, presented by Venafi.

Please join us on Thursday, Oct. 30th at 1PM ET for a special webcast: Gaps In SSH Security Create an Open Door for Attackers, presented by Venafi.

Almost half of IT security professionals reported they experienced compromised or misused Secure Shell (SSH) keys in the last 24 months. The majority of the survey respondents rely on overburdened system administrators to self-govern their SSH keys. Unfortunately the result is ineffective security practices that leave the organization exposed.

Forrester Research, analyst, John Kindervag, emphasizes, “Two-thirds of IT security professionals do not perform the necessary checks for unauthorized use of SSH keys.”

In this webinar, you will be provided with some recommendations how to mitigate the vulnerabilities that exist that exploit SSH keys and the gaps within an organization that leaves SSH keys vulnerable to these attacks.
