Sectigo, a renowned provider of automated digital identity management and web security solutions, has integrated its award-winning Certificate Manager platform with the popular cloud-based digital workflows platform ServiceNow. The new Sectigo Certificate App for ServiceNow enables security administrators to manage hundreds or even thousands of SSL/TLS and non-SSL (private) certificates across the enterprise from within the ServiceNow portal, taking advantage of ServiceNow’s IT workflow automation and management. Communication and integration The new Sectigo Certificate App for ServiceNow offers a core communication and integration layer Sectigo’s ServiceNow integration enables enterprises to enforce cryptographic strength, maintain compliance, and future-proof their businesses while minimising costs. The new Sectigo Certificate App for ServiceNow offers a core communication and integration layer that facilitates integrations between ServiceNow and Sectigo Certificate Manager, a complete management console for easily managing PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) certificates at scale by automating the issuance, discovery, renewal, revocation, and replacement of digital certificates. With the Sectigo Certificate App for ServiceNow, IT teams can manage large inventories of certificates in the ServiceNow IT Service Management (ITSM) portal and automate the end-to-end lifecycle of certificates at scale. Seamless certificate configuration The app offers IT teams new efficiencies in managing digital certificates, including: Issue, revoke, replace, and renew SSL and private certificates without leaving the ServiceNow dashboard Import organisation and department data, along with existing SSL and private certificates from Sectigo for seamless certificate configuration Request SSL and private certificates and optionally associate them with a configuration item Enforce certificate request approval workflows in ServiceNow for users and administrators Centrally catalogue, view, and report on all certificates across the enterprise Create workflows in ServiceNow and integrate with Incident, Change Management, and other IT service management processes Automate the renewal and synchronisation of certificates Centrally manage workflows Many enterprises rely on ServiceNow to centrally manage workflows across all IT services and technologies" “Many enterprises rely on ServiceNow to centrally manage workflows across all IT services and technologies in their environments,” said Lindsay Kent, VP of Product Management, Sectigo. “Issuing and managing SSL/TLS certificates from a Certificate Authority should work seamlessly from within the ServiceNow portal." "Sectigo has taken an innovative approach to deliver our apps with the ServiceNow flow designer engine, enabling us to inject certificate management into ServiceNow’s rule-based workflow control.” Automatically create tickets This embedded approach offers myriad efficiencies. For example, ServiceNow users can create workflows so that the platform will automatically create tickets when certificates are close to expiring, ensuring that the company’s engineers do not miss the renewal action. The Sectigo Certificate App for ServiceNow includes two components: Sectigo Certificate App – Connector and Sectigo Certificate App – Spoke (free). Available now, the components can be downloaded directly from the ServiceNow Store. Sectigo Certificate App for ServiceNow supports all SSL certificate types and is interoperable with all leading devices and operating systems.
Sectigo, a globally renowned provider of automated digital identity management and web security solutions, has joined the Cloud Signature Consortium to help drive standards in the rapidly-growing document signing space. Sectigo, the international commercial Certificate Authority, with expertise in automating document signing certificate issuance and renewal, will work closely with the Consortium to define and promote standards as the demand for electronic signatures continues to rise. Expansion of digital signatures According to the 2019 Digital Signatures Market-Growth, Trends and Forecast Report, the digital signatures market is expected to reach a value of US$ 6.93 billion by 2025 as the shift to digital reduces the risk of legal disputes and provides stronger supporting evidence. With more organisations transitioning to distributed-operating environments, more businesses are offering electronic document signing to customers, vendors, partners, and employees. As a result, the market is evaluating viable solutions from many providers, giving rise to the need for industry standards for interoperability and uniform adoption. Cloud Signature Consortium “The Cloud Signature Consortium is making it easier for European Union businesses and governments to successfully comply with the rigorous requirements for secure signatures mandated by eIDAS and similar regulations,” explained Lindsay Kent, Vice President of Product Management, Sectigo. Lindsay add, “As we begin to enter a new normal, the sector will see increased demand for digital signatures that offer the highest level of authentication and meet compliance standards. Our participation in the CSC enables Sectigo to play an active role in advancing industry standards, and speed widespread adoption of digital signing.” Trusted assurance of authentication Sectigo document signing certificates provide trusted assurance of authentication for documents Sectigo document signing certificates provide trusted assurance of authentication for electronically transmitted documents by validating the author and document while giving customers the confidence that the documents received have not been forged or tampered with. Sectigo certificates comply with some of the world’s strictest electronic signature/digital signature regulations, such as U.S. FDA CFR 21 Part 11 requirements, and ensure the highest security requirements for regulated and sensitive documents. Member of Adobe Approved Trust List Sectigo is also a member of the Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL), a program that allows millions of users worldwide to create digital signatures that are trusted whenever the signed document is opened in Adobe Acrobat or Reader software. “The Consortium vision is to promote a single digital market, across Europe and the globe. The ability to use a digital signature on any device, anytime, anywhere, is a basic requirement for today’s workforce,” said Andrea Valle, President of the Cloud Signature Consortium. New standard for cloud-based digital signatures Andrea adds, “Our group’s specifications will enable users to choose from a growing ecosystem of interoperable solutions from signing application providers and trust service providers, giving them more choice and flexibility than ever before.” The Cloud Signature Consortium is a group of industry and academic organisations committed to building a new standard for cloud-based digital signatures that will support web and mobile applications and comply with the most demanding electronic signature regulations in the world. The Consortium seeks to provide a common technical specification that will make solutions interoperable and suitable for uniform adoption in the global market.
