ROSELAND, NJ — February 24, 2022 — Sectigo®, a global leader in digital certificates and automated Certificate Lifecycle Management (CLM), today announced accessibility updates to its flagship product Sectigo Certificate Manager (SCM) that meet global compliance guidelines.
SCM’s new artificial intelligence automated accessibility tool via Equal Web enhances the user experience for those with limited vision or blindness, deafness, seizure disorders, and other disabilities. The accessibility widget allows users to make adjustments to the SCM application based on their preferences and earns SCM compliance in both the Section 508 U.S. regulation and global Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, known as WCAG 2.1.
“We are pleased to be able to offer this new accessibility tool to better accommodate all our unique users. Many of our customers and prospective users, especially from government agencies, need products that meet compliance regulations. This latest product enhancement meets that market demand and is a key differentiator for Sectigo in the Certificate Lifecycle Management space, opening up opportunities to grow our customer base and market share,” said Lindsay Kent, Senior Vice President of Product, Sectigo.
Sectigo’s accessibility updates to SCM include:
- Screen Reader: One of the most important features for compliance, screen reader adjustments make SCM’s interface compatible for most screen readers like JAWS, NVDA, Voiceover, and more. Every feature and text is adjusted for blind and visually-impaired users.
