DigiCert, Inc., a globally renowned provider of TLS/SSL, IoT and other PKI solutions, announced details of its expansion within the Nordic region, including new partnerships, recruitment, customer wins and market leadership. DigiCert has hit a milestone of signing its 30th strategic partnership agreement within the region amongst major systems integrators, solution providers and global consultancies.
The growing list includes respected leaders from across the Nordics, such as NNIT in Denmark, ATEA in Norway, and TietoEvry in Sweden. “DigiCert is a strategic and trusted partner,” says Marcus Wessberg for Ports Group. “Over the last few years, we have worked closely together to help deliver high value projects and raise the level of awareness amongst enterprises around the use of certificates.”
Foundational security technology
DigiCert has also grown its regional leadership team with the promotion of Viktor Kedvall Prag as regional manager for the Nordics. The team has been further strengthened with experts in the field supporting business in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. DigiCert is investing in a growing team of regional experts to enhance account and technical support for partners and end customers across the Nordics.
“There is real momentum across the Nordics to improve security posture from all types of organisations,” says Prag. “We are also witnessing significant growth in areas such as IoT and zero trust, and DigiCert is a foundational security technology to enable this transition.”
Managed certificate service
In November, DigiCert and Atea jointly announced the launch of an Atea Managed Certificate Service
Christopher Hallblom, Solution Architect for TietoEVRY, says, “Our partnership with DigiCert over the past years has allowed us to participate in discussions and given us the insight needed to refine our solutions and service offerings. This allows us to bring those experiences directly to the customer to seamlessly help them achieve their goals in a secure and effective manner.”
DigiCert has steadily grown its customer base over the last two years, and recent high-profile expansion includes a partnership with Atea, a pioneering supplier of IT infrastructure and system integration in the Nordic and Baltic regions. In November, DigiCert and Atea jointly announced the launch of an Atea Managed Certificate Service offering insight into certificate health, usage and endpoint vulnerabilities to ensure the best possible customer experience for secure communication.
Internet research company
Patrick Kvaksrud, service owner for Atea, says, “Atea is a trusted service provider and the new service delivered with DigiCert helps us overcome the time consuming burden of managing certificates, which allows our IT teams to focus on more valuable activities within our core business.”
Based on data from NetCraft, an independent internet research company, DigiCert maintains a good brand name across Organization Validated (OV) and Extended Validation (EV) TLS Certificates. Prag adds, “The Nordics is one of our fastest-growing regions in terms of adoption of EV and OV certificates and deployment of services that include our CertCentral platform. CertCentral allows partners and customers to access all certificate types from one place to better address a wider range of use cases and easily build new solutions.”
