Venafi is excited to welcome Corsha Inc., a leading API cybersecurity company, to the Machine Identity Management Development Fund, a program designed to dramatically expand machine identity management for the world’s leading businesses and government agencies. With this funding, Corsha will integrate with Venafi Trust Protection Platform, Jetstack cert-manager and Jetstack Secure to provide a comprehensive, layered machine identity solution that protects APIs and enables full visibility and control of machine-to-machine communications.
Corsha is on a mission to simplify API security and allow enterprises, developers, and DevSecOps teams to embrace modernization, complex deployments, and hybrid environments with confidence. Using a dynamic, blockchain-based machine identity, Corsha has developed a patented way to provide multi-factor authentication (MFA) for APIs, where API access may be pinned to only trusted machines. With Corsha, each API call now requires a fresh, one-time use credential, enabling zero-trust access for an organization’s API services.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to engage with the Jetstack and Venafi communities through the Machine Identity Management Development Fund,” said Anusha Iyer, co-founder and CTO of Corsha. “Corsha’s approach to API security is driven by dynamic machine identity. Collaborating with Venafi and Jetstack is a natural fit. Together we can bring customers a novel, comprehensive solution and give enterprises the ability to pin API access to only trusted machines in their ecosystem across cloud and hybrid environments and throughout their digital supply chain.”
“API security is a crucial element of an organization’s cybersecurity strategy, and we are pleased to have Corsha join the Machine Identity Management Development Fund,” said Kevin Bocek, vice president of ecosystem and threat intelligence for Venafi. “Today, API authentication and authorization rely on certificates, tokens and API keys that can be vulnerable to theft and misuse. Corsha adds a second layer of machine identity that is unique and dynamic, which reduces risk and makes it easy for developers to build new services safely. ’Fastsecure’ is the driving vision behind the Machine Identity Management Development Fund.”
The Machine Identity Management Development Fund empowers developers to build innovative machine identity management solutions for the Jetstack and Venafi communities. The Fund sponsors a wide range of developers, including consultants, systems integrators, fast-moving startups, open-source developers, and other cybersecurity vendors.
Fund partners build integrations that deliver greater visibility, intelligence and automation for machine identities created or consumed by enterprise applications and devices including, but not limited to; cloud, Kubernetes, DevOps, IoT, containers, service mesh, code signing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, SSH and big data analytics.
The Corsha API Security Platform integration is targeted for availability in Q3 2021. You can learn more from their listing on the Venafi Marketplace.
