Full-stack solution unifies CA-agnostic certificate management, private PKI services and public trust issuance for seamless digital trust infrastructure
Organizations are experiencing increasing pressure to manage digital trust at scale, across multiple functions in IT. But enterprises often lack centralized visibility and control over their digital trust initiatives. Thus, companies are now exploring ways to manage needs across functions under a unified digital trust strategy.
Enter DigiCert® Trust Lifecycle Manager. Trust Lifecycle Manager is redefining the meaning of certificate management by integrating CA-agnostic certificate management, across public and private trust, and PKI services to deliver centralized visibility and control, prevent business disruption and secure identity and access.
The increasing need for investing in digital trust has been felt in every part of the IT organization over the last few years:
Furthermore, in the State of Digital Trust survey,100% of enterprises said digital trust is important and two-thirds have switched vendors after losing trust in a vendor, while about half of consumers surveyed have stopped doing business with a company after losing confidence in its digital trust competency.
Against this backdrop, companies have been considering how to centralize their digital trust initiatives and bring them from being a utilitarian concern — e.g., who is responsible for certificate administration — to a strategic concern — e.g., how do we invest in the systems and processes that will best support our business goals. This is why some organizations are now creating the position of the Digital Trust Officer. At its annual conference in 2022, Forrester noted that this newly emerging position may be the natural evolution of career path for current CISOs.
To meet this strategic imperative for digital trust management, DigiCert is now delighted to introduce Trust Lifecycle Manager. Trust Lifecycle Manager is different from other certificate management solutions in that it not only addresses the need for centralizing visibility and management of both public and private certificates across the organization and across CAs (commonly referred to as certificate lifecycle management, or CLM), but it also seamlessly unifies CLM with the PKI services that govern private PKI issuance, from the creation and management of CAs and ICAs to the issuance of the certificates that govern user, device and server security, with integrations that drive these certificates all of the way to end entity and third-party application installation. This unified approach provides a comprehensive way to govern the full digital trust stack, backed by the support and services that contribute to digital trust resiliency.
