Top 3 Features of DigiCert Secure Site Pro


DigiCert conducted a survey with Secure Site and Secure Site Pro customers from August to September 2020. According to current customers, here are the top three most popular features in Secure Site and Secure Site Pro

Top features in both Secure Site and Secure Site Pro:

    Here’s what customers are saying:

    “SSL heaven. These guys are just so fast and professional that it makes all other competition look tiresome.” – Arve B.

    “Spectacular reactivity. Very good support and the best reactivity I’ve ever seen.” – Archraf G.

    “Not enough stars for this company! By far the most hassle-free way to get your site certificates.”– Peter P.

  1. Choice of trust marks

DigiCert Secure Site Pro includes the use of the iconic DigiCert Secured site seal from the most trusted CA on the internet. In fact, 90% of people recognize a DigiCert seal, and 93% of customers continue to check out when they see the DigiCert seal during checkout.

Additional features in Secure Site Pro:

Besides the top three listed, Secure Site Pro has some powerful features for your website security, like vulnerability assessment, CT log monitoring and a post-quantum computing (PQC) test kit.

  1. Vulnerability assessment
  2. Keep your business and customers safe by identifying website vulnerabilities that are commonly used in cyberattacks. After scanning your public-facing web pages, web-based applications, server software and network ports, you can view an actionable report organized by threat level, so you can quickly address the most urgent vulnerabilities by priority. You can also customize the scan by choosing which TLS/SSL server issues to look for. Vulnerability assessment reduces your team’s workload to automatically point out ways to strengthen network security, all while helping you remain PCI compliant.

  3. CT log monitoring
  4. Certificate Transparency (CT) is an open framework of logs, monitors and auditors created to help domain owners oversee digital certificates issued for their brands. CT logs help domain owners protect their brand by providing an easy process for discovering mis-issued or rogue certificates.

    CT log monitoring allows you to see public CT logs in real time to watch for TLS certificates issued for the domains on your Secure Site Pro certificates. This means you can ensure that only company-approved certificates are issued for your domain.

    And in the case that an unapproved certificate is issued for your domain, CT log monitoring will alert you so you can quickly remediate the issue and revoke any unwanted certificates. With Secure Site Pro CT log monitoring, you can enable email notifications for a Daily CT log digest and any urgent notifications that require immediate attention.

    Additionally, if you have a .gov domain, CT log monitoring is required for all U.S. government sites, due to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s policy change in January 2019.

  5. PQC Test Kit

Quantum computing will likely arrive sooner than expected, with some predicting it could arrive as soon as the next five years. 71% of IT professionals believe that quantum computing will be an extremely large threat in the near future. Companies need to prepare now to be ready for these threats to their environment.

The PQC Test Kit allows you to prepare post-quantum security strategies now and test hybrid PQC/RSA certificates to see how it impacts other applications on your network.

DigiCert’s PQC test kit includes:

  • Hybrid RSA/PQC TLS certificates
  • A modified Apache webserver/ISARA catalyst server
  • Custom Firefox browser
