Sectigo Certificate Manager SCM
Sectigo Certificate Manager (SCM) is an industry leading, CA agnostic platform, purpose-built to issue and manage the lifecycles of all public and private digital certificates through a single pane of glass. SCM authenticates and secures every human and machine identity across the enterprise.
Certificate Lifecycle Management
SCM leverages Sectigo’s extensive portfolio of public and private digital certificates which can be deployed to address a wide range of use cases. SCM offers a variety of functions, enabling IT teams to manage the entire lifecycle of the diverse set of digital certificates and keys used in the enterprise.
SCM archives private keys so that encrypted files and email can be decrypted in case the private key is accidentally destroyed or the enterprise needs access to files encrypted by the employee. The platform provides complete access control with detailed key logs for monitoring and auditing purposes to ensure the proper use of keys.
Continuous Certificate Discovery
CM enables the discovery of all digital certificates, enabling greater visibility into all digital certificates deployed across the network. Sectigo discovers SSL/TLS certificates originating from any CA using a port scan of the enterprise network. The discovery of digital certificates can also be achieved by directly querying other CA management platforms such as Microsoft ADCS.
The Critical Need for Certificate Automation
Digital certificate lifespans are shrinking. The trend of shrinking certificate lifespans, or ‘short life certificates’, is one Sectigo predicted as far back as 2019. In recent years the maximum term has dropped from three years, to two, to one. Find out more.
Azure Key Vault
Many enterprise cloud applications are tightly integrated with Microsoft Azure Key Vault to store and manage passwords, credentials, and certificates. But Azure Key Vault cannot issue certain certificates, such as those for public-facing websites, and those from the enterprise private Certificate Authority (CA).
