DigiCert, provider of TLS/SSL, IoT and PKI solutions for identity management and encryption, is upgrading channel partners to DigiCert CertCentral Partner, a comprehensive TLS certificate management solution for cloud and hosted environments.
CertCentral Partner would help partners customize and automate all stages of lifecycle management for their end customers, as well as easily deliver new features and solutions, while simplifying business management.
CertCentral Partner offers an updated API that lets partners “easily” integrate key features into their own offerings for their customers. Pre-validation capabilities, as well as support for change orders during order processing, would help improve business agility. Using CertCentral, partners can support multiple sub-accounts under a main account, simplifying management of customer accounts, ordering, payments and other processes.
“DigiCert CertCentral Partner is part of our comprehensive strategy to support our partners with world-class technology and services to help them succeed,” said Philip Antoniadis, executive vice president of worldwide sales at DigiCert. “Many of our partners are already experiencing compelling business outcomes, including new growth and organizational efficiencies.”
