BMC AMI Enterprise Connector for Venafi 2.x: Fundamentals Using (WBT)

Most people have tried to access a website and instead received a warning message advising caution because the site’s trust certificate has expired. For major enterprises with tens of thousands of servers and endpoints, managing certificates and ensuring they remain valid to avoid application outages is a huge undertaking. If certificates aren’t implemented properly, applications simply stop.

BMC offers an integration with Venafi, a leading provider of machine identity protection, to automate certificate management and access control for the mainframe. Venafi’s Trust Protection Platform (TPP) further contributes to your enterprise-wide Zero Trust security stance by ensuring connections to the mainframe are continuously verified and monitored and your policies enforced.

In this course, the learners will understand how BMC integrates with Venafi. They will learn how the product is installed, configured, and administered through engaging web-based content and quizzes.
