HID Global, a globally renowned provider in trusted identity solutions, has announced the release of its HID HydrantID Account Certificate Manager (ACM) solution. The HydrantID ACM solution is a cloud-based Public Key Infrastructure as a Service (PKIaaS) platform that enables organisations to easily deploy and access private Certificate Authorities (CAs).

The HID HydrantID Account Certificate Manager solution also provides comprehensive management and robust automation of both privately issued certificates and trusted Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates.

HydrantID ACM solution

HydrantID ACM solution helps organisations create, deploy, manage and control PKI-based authentication

The HydrantID ACM solution helps organisations create, deploy, manage and control PKI-based authentication and encryption across mixed IT systems, complex enterprise networks and IoT devices.

From small and medium enterprises to large multinationals, organisations that use the HID HydrantID ACM solution take complete control of privately issued or publicly trusted SSL/TLS certificate tracking, installation and renewal. This significantly reduces security and operational risks associated with self-managed, costly, time-consuming and error-prone manual processes.

Managing digital certificate lifecycle

Managing the digital certificate lifecycle has become increasingly risky and resource-intensive for organisations. They must secure hundreds of applications and thousands or tens of thousands of workstations, mobile devices and other endpoints with PKI-based strong authentication and encryption. 

At the same time, some organisations are also tackling the complexity of managing PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) systems that secure millions of connected IoT devices and related systems.

HydrantID ACM solves today’s difficult digital certificate lifecycle management problems by providing one secure and convenient cloud-based platform through which organisational teams can easily access private CA services managed by HydrantID on their behalf,” said Trell Rohovit, HID Global Vice President, Managed Security Services, Identity and Access Management.

Elastic cloud services

Trell adds, “The platform also automates routines such as certificate installation and renewal for both private managed CAs and/or trusted SSL/TLS certificates that secure a large and diverse ecosystem of network devices and applications.

The HydrantID ACM platform uses elastic cloud services to provide the necessary scalability for managing turnkey private CA services and issuing large and growing volumes of certificates with high availability across multiple geographic regions.

Hardware Security Modules

HydrantID-managed Hardware Security Modules add security in separate, secure data centres

HydrantID-managed Hardware Security Modules add security in separate, secure data centres. The solution gives administrators multiple options for automating distribution and management of digital certificates, including Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) v2, System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP), Enrollment over Secure Transport (EST), Microsoft auto-enrollment protocols, and the complete RESTFul Application Programming Interface (API).

In addition, the HydrantID Account Certificate Manager (ACM) solution can interface with existing certificate management providers, such as Venafi and AppViewX. Operating through a single pane-of-glass reduces the risk of disruptive certificate-related outages.

Other features of HydrantID Account Certificate Manager (ACM) solution:

  • Easy to deploy: 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.
  • Single Sign On and Multi-factor authentication ready: Integrates with popular Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) and OpenID Connect-enabled Identity Providers, such as Duo Security, Okta, Ping Federate (Ping Identity) and Azure AD for enterprise user account management.
  • Comprehensive reporting: Enables organisations to display critical information and request, search, report and export certificates and management data.
  • Fast and scalable: Designed to scale with demand and provide instant certificate enrollment, approval, issuance, revocation and renewal for certificates issued from privately managed Certificate Authorities (CAs).
  • High availability with fully redundant and geographically dispersed operations.
  • Granular Access Control: Allows organisations to define user role for approving, auditing or managing digital certificates for specific business unit or the entire organisation.
