Lower Cost and Complexity with a Managed, Cloud-Based Solution

Symantec, the leading provider of cloud-based PKI solutions, delivers a proven and trusted solution to secure communications for users and connected devices for the Internet of Things. Built on Symantec’s, globally managed, highly reliable cloud-based infrastructure, Symantec Managed PKI Service reduces the cost and complexity associated with in-house PKI and allows enterprises to focus on delivering solutions, instead of infrastructure.

  • Broad Application Support: Issuance of X.509 certificates for common applications such as VPN, Wi-Fi, web servers, devices, email encryption and signing, and Adobe PDF signing.
  • Automated Certificate Lifecycle Management: Managed PKI Service can automatically configure a user’s browser, VPN client, mail client, or other application to use certificates.
  • Enterprise Integration: Integrate Managed PKI Service with a corporate directory to populate certificate meta-data, select and enforce certificate and application policies, and publish issued certificates. PKI Enterprise Gateway functions as a local registration authority integrating with hardware security modules to protect key material.
