Unix and Linux systems often run sensitive databases, corporate websites and business critical applications, but too often, organizations don’t know exactly who or what has access to these critical systems. When you add SSH keys into the mix, the situation gets even worse.

SSH keys provide privileged – and often full root – access to Unix and Linux systems, and if you’re not taking steps to secure and manage these sensitive credentials, you’re leaving holes that can easily be exploited by attackers.

Download this IDC paper, Minimizing Cybersecurity Risk with Vigilant SSH Key Management, to learn how you can effectively:
• Locate SSH keys to understand potential risks
• Secure SSH keys to prevent unauthorized access
• Automate SSH key rotation to strengthen security
• Audit the use of SSH keys to improve compliance
