HID Global’s PKIaaS solution enables simplicity, scalability, flexibility, and multi-year pricing predictability to maximize the value of using PKI while automating certificate lifecycle management and retaining the control of your private trust assets.
Based on its recent analysis of the global private TLS certificates market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes HID Global with the 2022 Global Private TLS Certificates Enabling Technology Leadership Award. The company provides public key infrastructure-as-a-service (PKIaaS) and digital certificates to address enterprise network security, IoT device security, website security, and validated identity and trusted transactions. As part of its growth strategy, HID Global acquired IdenTrust, a public certificate authority, in 2014, to develop its PKI and IoT capabilities. It also acquired HydrantID, a vendor specializing in private PKI use cases such as enterprise network protection and IoT device security.
HID Global helps organizations handle the massive number of public and private trust certificates across the web, email, connected devices, and digital signing services to facilitate PKI adoption. The PKIaaS allows clients to outsource the complexity of the PKI in the cloud while retaining the control of their private root keys. It reduces the risk of certificate outages by automating the certificate lifecycle management from issuance to renewal and tracking certificate inventory across the entire organization for public and private trust digital certificates.. As a result, organizations can scale as they grow and protect every device within enterprise with predictable cost.
