PKI & Certificates Designed for DevOps

GlobalSign’s PKI for DevOps is a full-fledged PKI-as-a-Service offering built on our WebTrust-audited, fault-tolerant, reliable CA infrastructure - including hosted revocation services (CRL or OCSP), secure offline key storage, and hosting and management of dedicated or shared, public or private customer roots. Outsourcing your PKI to GlobalSign means developers have a single source to turn to for all certificate needs and are free to focus on core competencies. You can also leverage GlobalSign’s PKI expertise to ensure best practices and audit requirements are met, along with our world-class support and SLAs.

GlobalSign's PKI for DevOps is available via direct integration with our REST API or EST or via integration with Venafi Cloud DevOpsACCELERATE.

Why Use GlobalSign PKI for DevOps? Meet DevOps & InfoSec Needs

DevOps teams need to acquire certificates quickly and easily, without having to worry about spinning up and managing internal CAs or relying on free services that don’t offer technical support services or uptime and performance SLAs. InfoSec teams need these certificates, and underlying PKI, to be resilient and in line with the latest crypto best practices to reduce the risk of breach, comply with regulatory PKI requirements, and meet corporate policy on crypto.

GlobalSign’s PKI for DevOps makes both sides happy by delivering cost-effective, hosted PKI and certificate services at DevOps speed. Providing DevOps teams with one standards-compliant, outsourced CA that can cover all certificate needs (e.g., private, public, flexible certificate templates, short-lived certificates) reduces complexity around certificate management and makes it easy to meet corporate policy set by InfoSec teams. Outsourcing to GlobalSign eliminates the need for internal crypto expertise and provides the support, SLAs, throughput and reliable PKI infrastructure DevOps teams need.

  • Reduce costs by eliminating the need for internal PKI expertise, ongoing maintenance and associated costs
