DigiCert Enterprise PKI Manager Enhances Security for Remote Workforces
November 2020 by Marc Jacob
Enterprise PKI Manager in DigiCert ONE™ from DigiCert, Inc., the provider of TLS/SSL, IoT and PKI solutions, supports security for today’s increasingly remote workforces via certificate automation to authenticate employees and their devices at scale, and encrypt data. Working from home is here to stay, with Gartner reporting that 74% of CFOs are looking to shift some employees to permanent remote work. Digital certificates are a proven, widely adopted solution for strong authentication and are well supported by a variety of devices, platforms and operating systems.
Many organizations, including the world’s best brands, use private CA systems within their networks, relying on manual certificate management that often leads to errors or shutdowns and overworked teams. Enterprise PKI Manager makes it easy for organizations to manage and use digital certificates to secure all employees, devices and data that connect to the network, and it can be deployed as a customer-managed on-premises or cloud solution, or managed by DigiCert.
Enterprise PKI Manager offers a flexible, unified approach to PKI management at scale. With Enterprise PKI Manager, organizations can enable digital signing for large volumes of users and devices quickly, utilizing a containerized, cloud-native architecture that rapidly deploys digital certificates on-demand.
Enterprise PKI Manager gives organizations the ability to:
● Enable API-based automated device and user enrollment with digital certificates.
● Integrate with leading MDM/UEM platforms for secure device enrollment and management.
● Secure emails with authentication and encryption via S/MIME certificates.
● Enable secure document signing across the organization’s physical and virtual network environments.
● Integrate with the other DigiCert ONE workflow managers for secure code signing for software and IoT device security.
DigiCert is continually innovating to develop comprehensive solutions for work-from-home and remote access use cases, and integration initiatives are in place with a variety of leading MDM, UEM and smart card partners.
Enterprise PKI Manager is built on DigiCert ONE, a PKI management platform developed with cloud-native architecture and technology to be the PKI infrastructure service to solve today’s security challenges.

It also deploys extremely high volumes of certificates quickly using a robust and highly scalable infrastructure. DigiCert ONE delivers end-to-end centralized user and device certificate management, a modern approach to PKI to provide trust across dynamic IT architectures.
