Partners in developing a more secure future

Better security doesn’t react. It predicts, adapts and prevents.

Post-quantum certificates

The post-quantum computing era is rapidly approaching, and it will mean the end of encryption as we know it today. That’s why we’re working closely with partners throughout the industry to develop and test post-quantum encryption methods to protect tomorrow’s data. 

IoT privacy and security

From smart vacuum robots to smart speakers, IoT devices are an everyday part of many consumers’ lives. But without proper security policies and technology they can put privacy at risk. That’s why DigiCert Labs is developing a system of categorizing IoT device security using AI and pattern recognition technologies.
