I am excited to share that Sectigo has received the 2020 Global Competitive Strategy Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan in recognition of our PKI portfolio. The market research leader based the award on its recent analysis of the global transport layer security (TLS) certificates market and specifically cited Sectigo’s ‘easy-to-use management platform’ and use of automation and IETF standards-based integrations among its reasons for bestowing the award.
Written by Frost & Sullivan analyst Swetha R. Krishnamoorthi, the report states that “Sectigo Certificate Manager leverages automation and single pane of glass control and simplifies issuance, discovery, renewal, revocation, and replacement. Frost & Sullivan commends Sectigo’s success in streamlining how organizations manage PKI for public and private TLS certificates.
The analyst adds that “Sectigo built an impressive certificate manager that provides organizations without large IT teams with the capability to administer TLS and PKI certificates for devices, users, and applications. With a single interface, users gain the robust and straightforward ability to administer all certificates and encryption keys for code signing, document signing, S/MIME, mobile and IoT devices, DevOps, and passwordless VPN/Wi-Fi/web applications.”
Frost & Sullivan recognizes Sectigo’s advancements in the areas of certificate discovery and automation. IoT, applications, containers, and other connected devices have proliferated at an astonishing rate, substantially increasing the number of certificates that businesses must manage and dramatically increasing the need for reliable certificate discovery and efficient certificate management.
Sectigo is committed to easing the burden of certificate management for enterprises of all sizes. In addition, Frost & Sullivan acknowledges Sectigo Certificate Manager's efficiency, integration, and cost effectiveness, stating that “With Sectigo’s toolset, IT teams can truly manage certificates at scale and with ease.” The report goes on to say that “The range of integrations with the leading DevOps automation and orchestration platforms and applications compliant with IETF protocols enables Sectigo’s management console to minimize costs, eliminate certificate expiry, and provide the management of all certificate needs as enterprises implement their digital transformation.”
Automation, integration, and scalability are indeed the foundational pillars of Sectigo’s platform that make it easy for businesses to authenticate human and machine identities accessing their networks. Industry experts recognize the impact of automation tools, such as ACME, as well as myriad use cases that make TLS certificate management seamless.
Frost & Sullivan’s recognition underscores Sectigo’s important role in making the Internet a safer, more secure place, and Sectigo will continue to build on that commitment.
