Enterprise SSL PKI Certificate Manager
Enterprise Managed PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) accounts allow organizations with many SSL Certificates to manage their certificates—including issuing new certificates and reissuing, replacing, and revoking existing certificates on demand. The ability to manage your certificates directly and immediately gives your account administrator more control and eliminates the waiting period associated with retail requests.

How Does Public Key Infrastructure Management with DigiCert Work?
After your organization purchases and sets up an enterprise account, you will submit your domain(s) for validation by DigiCert. You will also assign an account administrator and create user accounts. Once DigiCert has validated your domain(s), you can begin requesting certificates and making modifications to existing certificates. Our straightforward user and request management system was developed directly in conjunction with several major organizations with both high- and low-level SSL Certificate and user management needs, including universities, government agencies, and financial institutions.
What Is an Enterprise SSL / Managed PKI Account?
Enterprise SSL (also known as Managed PKI) is a PKI certificate management system that enables the webmasters or technology administrators within a particular organization to more efficiently manage their SSL Certificates. In a DigiCert Managed PKI environment your organization's admins are empowered to handle the PKI management functions that are necessary to meet the needs of a large organization.
Who Needs a Managed SSL PKI System?
While each organization's structure, both in administration as well as technical configuration, is unique to that organization, there are three common threads that can help you determine if an Enterprise PKI Management system is right for you.
1. Your organization manages multiple certificates per domain
One of the main advantages of PKI management is that once a domain has been approved you can automatically issue, reissue, and even revoke certificates in real-time through your online management account. Even if your organization only manages a few domains but has several secure sites, subdomains of those domains, or multiple levels of subdomains within those domains, you can experience a significant time savings by switching to a Managed PKI account.
2. Your organization manages multiple domains per company
Many organizations own dozens of domains and require certificates to keep those domains secured. With an enterprise account you can simplify management in a large organizational structure.
3. You have many users who need to request certificates, but those requests require administrative oversight
If you require organizational oversight an Enterprise PKI account can help simplify the approval process. It can also help in situations where structural or internal billing is facilitated by having a centralized Web PKI admin system or in a setting where multiple departments need to separately manage their own certificates. And all of this can be done with the oversight of a centralized administrator or group of administrators.
Who Doesn't Need Web-Based PKI?
Managed PKI is not always helpful to an organization just because they deal with a large number of certificates. If you are unsure about whether an enterprise account would be useful in your environment just give us a call at 855-800-3444. Our team will be happy to help you analyze your needs and come up with the best solution for you.
