There was a time when certificate management was fairly low on the list of demands on an IT administrator's resources. Most organizations had few services like external websites that were required to be internet facing, and security best practices considered encrypted connections essential only for financial and e-commerce websites. Moreover, web browsers didn't require the use of encrypted connections that necessitate the use of SSL/TLS certificates.
In today's IT environment, digital certificates are everywhere. Certificate management can be complex and potentially time consuming without the right tools. Centralizing certificate management to ServiceNow is one way you can streamline certificate life cycle management in a more complex encrypted world.
The IT environment has become more complex for a variety of reasons:
IT administrators are looking for help reducing the workload associated with their growing certificate populations.
Entrust Datacard offers three complimentary approaches to reduce the burden on IT administrators:
All of these approaches require seamless integration of the certificate issuing infrastructure with the cloud platforms and automation tools that IT administrators rely on. Entrust Datacard is making several of these integrations available to our customers, including our recently launched integration application for ServiceNow customers. Our Open API-based REST API also allows customers to easily build custom integration logic, if desired.
Certificate management continues to be an area IT administrators are looking to simplify. Entrust Datacard is committed to making the tools needed to effectively automate and delegate certificate management tasks available to our customers.
