Certificate Management for IoT Devices:

Ensure Your Network Devices
are Certifiably Safe

In secured network environments, certificate-based network access control (NAC) is critical to keeping the right IoT devices online, while keeping unwanted devices off the network altogether. The Viakoo Action Platform helps ensure that authorized IoT devices continue to gain access to the network by automatically managing the certification process.

 

Extend Certificates to All Your IoT Devices

Many enterprises keep their networks secure by ensuring every device on the network has a valid 802.1x certificate. Installing and maintaining certificates for thousands of IoT devices from multiple vendors has been a complex and virtually impossible task. Until now. The Viakoo Action Platform and the Viakoo Device Certificate Manager (DCM) delivers centralized automated full life cycle management for 802.1x certificates for IoT devices at virtually any scale.

Keep Certificates Up to Date Always

Once the Viakoo Action Platform discovers your IoT devices, it immediately analyzes their certificate status. This includes validating certificate presence, age, and validity. Viakoo Device Certificate Manager then enables the automated installation of validated certificates where needed. Viakoo DCM even maintains a complete audit log of certificate history of every device for simplified compliance and audit reporting.

Deploy Trusted Certificates

Deploying trusted certificates is key to both security and operational continuity. Viakoo DCM ensures that certificates are valid and have been issued by the correct certificate authorities. An end-to-end life cycle process covers all use and transmission of certificates to protect against corruption or manipulation.

Automate Certificate Updates for Network Devices

Deploying certificates manually device by device across geographies and vendor systems is not safe, efficient, or secure. With the click of a button, Viakoo DCM deploys, updates and manages certificates on virtually any number of devices anywhere. 

Viakoo DCM automation saves time and money, while eliminating the frustration of manual certificate management processes. With Viakoo, enterprises know they are in certificate compliance with higher security in minutes instead of months.

The Next Stage: Passwords

Updating certificates alone is not enough, if default or enterprise-wide passwords are used on IoT devices. Viakoo Action helps you to not only eliminate default passwords, but also verify that password cyber hygiene protocols are being followed.
