SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global transport layer security (TLS) certificate market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Entrust Datacard with the 2020 Global Customer Value Leadership Award. Entrust Datacard, with its customer-focused approach, goes beyond certificate issuance and management. Its comprehensive portfolio of products and services helps organizations seamlessly transition to cloud and hybrid IT ecosystems, manage trusted identities, and secure sensitive information, assets, and digital interactions. With its value-added features in flexible packaging, it has gained significant revenue shares and more importantly, customers' trust.
A leader in trusted identity and secure transaction technologies, Entrust Datacard offers a broad portfolio of high assurance TLS/secure socket layer (SSL) certificates such as organization-validated (OV) and extended validation (EV) certificates. These solutions secure sensitive information, assets, and digital interactions; reduce error-prone manual processes; and offer certificate lifecycle management.
"Entrust Datacard helps customers find rogue or out-of-scope certificates across locations and export them to its Certificate Hub central management console. Its certificate recycling subscription model provides the customer security team with the flexibility to select specific certificate expiry dates and reuse certificate licenses to predict costs and plan ahead. The expired certificate license is sent to a certificate pool to be used later," said Swetha R K Industry Analyst. "Furthermore, Entrust Datacard provides tools to enable customers to automatically install certificates, decrease errors, and eliminate manual installation time."
Entrust Datacard offers automation tools that blends DevOps methodologies and the security features that information security teams require, without taxing resources or undermining the DevOps culture. As a result, it is the first certificate authority to develop an Ansible module that automates certificate deployment at scale onto an unlimited number of endpoints, enabling a DevSecOps experience for TLS/SSL. Entrust Datacard also is the first commercial CA to integrate its platform with ServiceNow, an IT Service Management tool. This integration enables customers to integrate their certificate management workflow with other IT management operations.
"Entrust Datacard has an excellent track record for transitioning customers to meet new compliance requirements. It guides customers through the public key infrastructure (PKI) and identity management journey, helping them establish next level public and private trust," noted Swetha. "Its client-focused product innovations and forward-looking strategies are expected to set it up for continued success in the global market."
