DigiCert, Cybertrust Japan Expand Japanese Market Presence

LEHI, UTAH, (February 21, 2017) — DigiCert, a global leader in scalable identity and encryption solutions for enterprise web and Internet of Things (IoT) security, today announced, in conjunction with its partner Cybertrust Japan, the expansion of DigiCert products, services and platforms to serve the Japanese enterprise security market. Starting today, Cybertrust Japan will now offer single-domain DigiCert SSL Plus and EV SSL Plus certificates as well as localized customer support and certificate management tools.

“DigiCert is excited to continue building our strategic partnership with Cybertrust Japan and for them to start offering our SSL Plus and EV SSL Plus certificates to the Japanese market,” said DigiCert CEO John Merrill. “Our growing partnership with Cybertrust Japan will help more Japanese businesses enjoy in their own language the market leadership, automated certificate management and industry-best customer support that many of the world’s leading brands count on DigiCert to provide.”

Cybertrust Japan has already been selling DigiCert multi-domain and wildcard SSL/TLS certificates since DigiCert acquired Verizon’s Enterprise SSL business unit in 2015. As part of the growing partnership, Cybertrust Japan will operate a local Registration Authority (RA) to improve certificate issuance processes for in-market customers.

Cybertrust Japan is the longest-tenured certificate issuer in Japan with more than 20 years in business. For the past two consecutive years, the company has enjoyed the largest net increase in the number of EV certificates issued in Japan. Cybertrust Japan has experienced significant gains, thanks in large part to DigiCert’s strong reputation and leading certificate management tools.

DigiCert is the world’s second-largest issuer of issuing high-assurance SSL/TLS certificates and enjoys a strong reputation for innovation and award-winning customer support. The company works with leading brands, including the Global 2000, to advance enterprise SSL/TLS as well as protecting connected devices within the IoT market. DigiCert’s expertise in these areas is leading to new market opportunities within Asia in collaboration with Cybertrust Japan.
