“When it came time for us to choose a financing partner I knew about Mercato. I knew the culture. I knew where they fit. I knew it was a growth-oriented fund. It was people that would really compliment our current investors. I believe in working with local investment companies. So we chose Mercato.”
– Jeff Hudson, CEO
Venafi is the Immune System for the Internet, protecting the foundation of all cybersecurity—cryptographic keys and digital certificates—so they can’t be misused by bad guys in attacks. In today’s connected world, cybercriminals want to gain trusted status and remain undetected, which makes keys and certificates a prime target. Unfortunately, most security systems blindly trust keys and certificates, allowing bad guys to use them to hide in encrypted traffic, spoof websites, deploy malware, and steal data.
As the Immune System for the Internet, Venafi patrols across the network, on devices, behind the firewall, and throughout the Internet to determine which SSL/TLS, SSH, WiFi, VPN and mobile keys and certificates are trusted, protects those that should be trusted, and fixes or blocks those that are not.
