Certificate Monitoring™ gives organizations full insight into digital certificates issued for their domains to audit issuance and protect against fraud
Lehi, UT (Sept. 14, 2015) — DigiCert Certificate Monitoring™ has been voted a People’s Choice Stevie® Award winner for Favorite New Products in the Security/Data Protection category. DigiCert received its award at the 13th Annual American Business Awards gala held in San Francisco this past weekend.
Certificate Monitoring™ is the latest innovation from DigiCert, a leading global Certificate Authority and provider of trusted identity and authentication services, and is designed to simplify digital certificate management. Certificate Monitoring, launched this past April as the first service of its kind, helps organizations audit all certificates issued for their domains to enforce security policies, and defend against rogue and unauthorized SSL/TLS Certificate issuance.
“We’re honored to receive this award as a result of the many security professionals who voted for Certificate Monitoring,” said DigiCert CEO Nicholas Hales. “In a hyper-connected world in which organizations face evolving threats, providing continuous certificate monitoring through Google’s Certificate Transparency and related initiatives helps protect organizations and users from unauthorized certificate issuance, whether that be by negligence or fraud.”
Cloud-based, Certificate Monitoring™ accesses millions of public certificate records from Google’s Certificate Transparency (CT), DigiCert’s CT log and other sources to present all discoverable certificates in one interface. The DigiCert log was the first non-Google operated one approved for CT and has been in use since late 2014. Using Certificate Monitoring, administrators can identify possible phishing attempts and other fraudulent schemes, safeguarding user trust and protecting against attacks.
Certificate Monitoring™ is one component of DigiCert’s industry-leading certificate lifecycle management system, CertCentral®, a new innovative platform created to consolidate certificate monitoring, SSL deployment, certificate inspection, and PKI management. Additionally, DigiCert’s customers, which include six of the global Alexa Top 10, enjoy award-winning, 24/7 support free of charge, along with a host of other customer-friendly features to simplify certificate management.
