The Need for Better SSL Certificate Tracking
We know overseeing the myriad of SSL certificates your company has acquired can be extremely time-consuming and difficult. Keeping track of which Certificate Authority issued each certificate, where it was installed, and when it’s expiring is nearly impossible. Our new Certificate Inventory Tool (CIT) can help.
With the GlobalSign CIT you can easily manage all the SSL certificates on your networks, both internal and public-facing, regardless of the issuing CA. From one, easy-to-use portal, you can run reports on the status of existing certificates, as well as view the certificate issue date, issuing CA, expiration date, and validity period.
Track and Update Certificates - Before They Expire
Expired public SSL certificates can trigger alarming warnings in browsers, damaging your company’s reputation and decreasing traffic to your site. Internal expirations can disrupt the processes dependent on encrypted communication. Fortunately, the CIT sends you email alerts when your certificates are nearing expiration making it very easy to avoid this costly mistake.
You can also easily keep up with best practices for key lengths, validity period, hashing algorithm, and other certificate options with a simple scan from the CIT. Your entire repository of certificates can be scanned to ensure they are all up to date and compliant with the latest recommendations, or with your own custom corporate policies.
