Certificate Lifecycle Management

As network environments continue to expand, securing digital communications between components increases in complexity. Digital certificates establish the credentials of network components and ensure the secure transmission of sensitive information between client and server through identity authentication and data encryption.

A large deployment of digital certificates and private keys must be managed and doing so taxes an organization's time and resources. Managing multiple certificates with differing expiration dates issued by different vendors challenges even the most sophisticated enterprise.

Many organizations institute a Managed Public Key Infrastructure (MPKI) initiative to alleviate the strain. However, much of an MPKI initiative involves tedious, resource-intensive tasks. Failing to complete those tasks can result in the expiration of certificates that can put your network at risk, knock your organization out of compliance, make servers and other network assets unavailable and damage your brand due to network downtime.
