DigiCert has successfully migrated its customers and partners from multiple legacy Symantec enterprise, retail and partner TLS consoles to its award-winning DigiCert CertCentral and shut down legacy public TLS issuance systems. According to DigiCert, this milestone significantly improves the user experience, while consolidating DigiCert’s PKI operations, freeing resources to focus on innovation of customer-facing and back-end solutions. This achievement is part of the company’s ongoing initiative of modernising PKI to ensure scalable, fast and reliable trust services for a rapidly growing number of online security use cases.
Over the past two years, DigiCert has invested significant resources to modernise its technology. The company has established its technology infrastructure in new data centres and continues to advance a strategy that combines the best global technology with regional initiatives and teams, to offer a local touch. The upgrade to CertCentral for all customers and partners will include access to automation for the entire TLS certificate lifecycle, from provisioning to discovery and renewal. It bolsters DigiCert’s continuous creation of new offerings for its customers and partners through CertCentral.
“Over the last three years, we have been working closely with customers and partners to allow them to move from legacy Symantec consoles to CertCentral, to provide an enhanced user experience with the industry’s best features,” said DigiCert CEO John Merrill. “This milestone lets us direct our resources and energy away from maintaining old systems and into innovation and continuously creating new offerings for our partners and customers.”
CertCentral offers automation for organisations to issue, discover, renew and revoke certificates. It is built with an API-first approach for easy certificate management at any scale and supports 11 international languages and nine global currencies. As innovation accelerates, CertCentral will offer enhanced support and faster validation, with customisation capabilities to support a variety of TLS certificate use cases. Its single source code and improved automation will strengthen the trustworthiness of PKI and improve industry compliance.
