HID Global Enables Comprehensive Digital Certificate Automation Via Single Cloud Portal and Subscription Fee

AUSTIN, Texas, March 29, 2021 – HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced the HID HydrantID® Account Certificate Manager (ACM) solution that eliminates manual, risk-prone processes for tracking, installing and renewing privately-issued as well as trusted Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates. The solution supports the industry’s broadest range of certificate automation requirements under a single annual subscription fee.

“HydrantID ACM solves today’s difficult digital certificate lifecycle management problems by providing one secure and convenient cloud-based platform for organizational teams to easily access private Certificate Authority services managed by HydrantID on their behalf,” said Brad Jarvis, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Identity & Access Management Business Area, with HID Global. “The platform also automates routines such as certificate installation and renewal for both private managed Certificate Authorities and/or trusted SSL/TLS certificates that secure a large and diverse ecosystem of network devices and applications.”

HID HydrantID ACM software is unique in supporting both trusted SSL certificates and, for greater chain-of-trust control, hosted private Intermediate Certificate Authorities (ICAs)--all under a single annual subscription fee. Unlike solutions that impose the additional cost, configuration, support and point-of-failure risks of an intermediary “command and control” management platform, the HID HydrantID solution communicates directly with endpoints using a Connector model. This makes it easier for organizations to add commercial certificate utilities such as Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME) clients to the HydrantID platform or embed them in enterprise platforms such as Microsoft Intune using native application programming interfaces (APIs).

Other features of the HydrantID ACM include:

  • One Pane of Glass: Provides a single pane of glass to manage all enterprise public or private trust digital certificates reducing the risk of certificate related outages.
  • Automation for Any Device: Leverages core operating system components and standards-based protocols for certificate lifecycle automation and integrates out-of-the-box with Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS) enterprise tools.
  • Fast, Easy and Scalable:  Designed with fully redundant and geographically dispersed operations to scale on demand and provide instant certificate enrollment, approval, issuance, revocation and renewal.
  • Streamlined Certificate Management: Single Sign On, Multi-factor Authentication, Comprehensive Reporting, Granular Access Control with a lightweight, browser-based self-service certificate portal and workflow controls to streamline certificate lifecycle management.
