More and more code signing keys are hijacked from trusted vendors to sign and spread malware. But the burden to protect keys is often left to developers – people who specialize in code, not security.
Keyfactor Code Assure centralizes code signing operations into a single intuitive platform. Developers can have the freedom to quickly sign any code, from anywhere, while keys remain locked in a secure vault.
When you sign a piece of code, you make a statement that the software came from your trusted team and that you stand behind it. But the ability to keep code signing keys secure is growing more and more complex.
More and more malware is signed with legitimate code signing keys stolen from trusted vendors – leading to serious damage.
But the burden to protect code signing certificates and keys is often left to developers that specialize in code, not security.
Keys wind up in unsecured locations from developer workstations to build servers – and who knows where else.
