Certificate Management

What is Certificate Management?

Certificate management allows the verification of the identity of machines. In machine identity protection, digital certificates allow for encrypted data to be safeguarded between systems. The most widely used standard for digital certificates is X.509.

Vulnerable certificates represent a significant threat to your network. As the Internet of Things and our technological ecosystem become more complex, more and more certificates are produced, becoming integral to the safety of our daily activities. From banking and shopping to BAU operations.

A centralised Digital Certificate Management system like Cogito Group’s ‘Jellyfish’ automates the detection of expired or vulnerable certificates within your network, allowing full lifecycle management of all existing certificates, no matter the CA.
