On-Demand Webcast: PKI Automation for the Future. Watch now.
Preventing outages is essential to every organization. Avoid costly outages and business disruption by staying in front of expiring certificates, and lower your business risk by taking control of weak and poorly configured certificates.
Often, expired certificates are the cause of system outages. This can be the result of an organization losing sight of a pending certificate expiration in their manual tracking, not having awareness of or insight into the certificate at all, or being in a position where personnel turnover and experience gaps lead to certificates being 'lost'.
Without the right PKI strategy and certificate management system, a number of consequences can result, including server downtime, disrupted access to business apps, limited functionality of operational tools, lost revenue, reputation damage, and reduced productivity with each of them.
CMS Enterprise ensures that all deployed certificates are functioning according to plan and policy. Whether the certificate was issued from a primary internal CA, or was purchased from an external certificate provider, all certificates are stored and tracked within a single console, with full reporting and alerting for expiring certificates.
All alerting and reporting is configurable on a per certificate and per certificate 'collection' basis. Collections can be defined according to any of a certificate's fields, as well as custom metadata and extended attributes that are bound to the certificate - without requiring certificate modification - and which allow for additional variables to help in defining the certificate. Common collections are those defined by certificate type, expiration date range, encryption strength, device type, location, and owner. Reporting and alerting lead to actions being taken on an individual certificate, or on a group of certificates jointly.
