Comodo launches new digital Certificate Management Platform

Comodo, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions, today launched a new release of Comodo Certificate Manager (CCM), a complete, full-lifecycle digital certificate management platform that aims to enable enterprises to manage their entire digital certificate ecosystem. According to the company, digital certificates provide the backbone for information security, and with the growing need to secure everything digital, certificate management becomes increasingly complex. It further holds that the problem will get much worse as enterprises turn to certificates to better manage security for the 21 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices expected by 2020. Additionally, the need for better IoT security is underscored by the recent spate of record-breaking DDoS attacks, powered by compromised security cameras and other devices. “Based on our deep understanding of the certificate market, Comodo anticipated the challenges brought on by IoT devices and resource strapped IT teams,” said John Peterson, vice president and general manager, Comodo.
“With the new release, our customers can easily manage their digital certificates from a unified dashboard that provides a comprehensive view of their entire certificate inventory, providing quick access to alert settings and certificate controls, no matter where in their environment that certificate is installed.”

CCM organizes certificates into one central inventory

Comodo claims that CCM allows businesses to self-administer, instantly provision its certificates, auto-discover and manage all certificates, from any certificate authority (CA), throughout the organization. Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are cryptographic protocols that provide communications security over a computer network. Comodo explains that CCM automatically discovers all internal and external SSL/TLS certificates and organizes them into one central inventory to simplify SSL/private key information (PKI) tracking and management. It also alerts them when certificates are about to expire. The platform also aims to enable organizations to be their own private CAs, either directly through CCM or through the use of Microsoft Active Directory certificate templates. This, according to the company, provides organizations with a cost-effective way to enable enhanced security offerings such as SSL, S/MIME (with key archival and recovery) secure logon, user and machine authentication, web server authentication and smart cards.
