Venafi TPP does not require Internet Access to operate on a daily basis. For environments that are locked down Venafi is still able to operate without the need to constantly "phone home".
Internet access is not required. The product can work without access to the Internet. Out of the box there are two modules that require Internet access and those are optional or there are workarounds.
- There are usage analytics that are sent back to Venafi. Without Internet access these are simply not sent to Venafi. Similar effect as when users would opt-out of this feature.
- The second is license report. By default this would be sent back to Venafi but can be adjust to manual or some SMTP server that can send this report to Venafi while the server itself did not have any Internet access.
