Global provider of smart token management solutions, Bell ID, today announces the launch of Bell ID® Certificate Manager: a web-based platform to manage digital certificates in computer networks, on smart phones, smart cards or USB tokens. Aimed at enterprises, governments and third party service providers, it reduces operational costs by delegating control to end-users via a self-service portal and by automating many bulk certificate management tasks.
By empowering end-users with certificate management capabilities, organizations are able to improve central IT service desk activities while reducing costs and freeing up resources. The system automatically checks the expiry dates and certified data of employee certificates and issues email notifications when action is required, thereby ensuring the certificate validity and overall IT security.
“Managing identity credentials has always been at the core of our business activities. We are pleased to now expand our solution to the management of certificates as well,” comments David Orme, CEO at Bell ID. “There has already been significant interest from both current and new customers; proving there is a real need for a cost-effective, secure and efficient certificate management solution.”
The product supports the management of any type of certificate from different Certificate Authorities and easily integrates with existing IT systems. As part of Bell ID’s identity suite, the solution can easily be extended with other applications such as physical access control, biometric identification or loyalty, providing organizations with a scalable solution which is adaptable to future technical and commercial requirements. Bell ID Certificate Manager has successfully passed all Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)-vulnerability tests and is currently being deployed at several customer sites.
