DigiCert releases two new tools to modernise PKI

DigiCert, a provider of TLS/SSL, IoT and PKI solutions, recently announced two new PKI tools: IoT Device Manager and Enterprise PKI Manager.

Unlike PKI applications of the past, both PKI managers use a container-based, cloud-agnostic implementation that ensures fast and flexible on-premises, cloud and hybrid PKI deployments.

These new offerings are built on the DigiCert ONE platform.  

DigiCert ONE delivers end-to-end centralised user and device certificate management for a variety of deployment models and PKI use cases.

“As early adopters of IoT Device Manager and Enterprise PKI Manager, we are looking forward to their ease of use and flexibility for our many initiatives, including our IoT and connected city solutions," says British Telecom technical lead of PKI and cryptography Mark Stevens.

"PKI applications that we’ve used in the past have required weeks of long hours to deploy on-premises, but with DigiCert ONE, after configuring our Docker and network environment, we were up and running the PKI Managers in about 20 minutes,” says Stevens.

“British Telecom is excited and looking forward to the benefit of DigiCert ONE's multiple functionalities and the scalability it will bring for our customers.”

IoT Device Manager allows device manufacturers to:

  • provision and embed device identity at any stage of the device lifecycle, from the factory to device deployment on-premises, in the cloud or hybrid environments
  • simplify device identity, authentication, encryption and integrity with a single click
  • marry device data visualisation with cryptographic, manufacturing and factory process data
  • support standards-based interoperability with many third-party manufacturing and provisioning systems.

 

Enterprise PKI Manager allows IT teams to:

  • deploy identity, authentication and access to large user populations quickly and with little to no end-user interaction
  • have flexibility in deployment models, supporting customer deployments in private or public cloud, air-gapped environments, or completely managed by DigiCert
  • customise certificates and tailor deployments to their infrastructure and needs
  • manage out-of-the-box and create custom CA hierarchies.

 

“Today’s release of the IoT Device Manager and Enterprise PKI Manager in DigiCert ONE meets customers where they want to be with fast, flexible and automated PKI deployment across global networks”, says DigiCert CEO John Merrill.

“Whether deploying to their own private or public clouds, IoT Device Manager and Enterprise PKI Manager give customers the tools they need to integrate PKI services that secure their device connection points,” says Merrill.

Developed based on feedback from leading enterprises and IoT device manufacturers, DigiCert ONE meets practical organisational needs, enabling them to:

  • integrate PKI services with established business processes and third-party vendors via a feature-rich REST API
  • facilitate a rollout of PKI services in minutes instead of days, leveraging environment parity and container portability to set up private or public clouds or on-premises
  • reduce total cost of ownership and complexity with a scalable architecture and containerisation strategies to provide a high availability PKI platform for their company.
     

With a continuous deployment model, DigiCert will introduce additional PKI managers to DigiCert ONE, such as secure email, document signing, object signing and individual signing.

From OS to application, DigiCert ONE users will benefit from regular updates that ensure they are always running the most up-to-date software with the latest functionality.
