Tell the story about this nominated product or service (up to 650 words). Describe its function, features, benefits, and performance to date:
DigiCert’s API service allows customers to automate and customize their certificate management process. Customers experience a simple and easy integration through APIs that are highly scalable and reliable with no down time. Some of the largest implementations of certificates in the world like Plex, Microsoft Azure, SaltStack, and Venafi integration are supported through DigiCert’s APIs. Many companies need certificates and require some level of automation or a system that best fits their workflows without additional portals. Our APIs do this in a secure way as they are built on REST API so all platforms and portals are in line. Each customer or organization is able to customize their certificate management process to fit their needs. Certificate types such as SSL, code signing, client, private SSL and more can all be easily operated.
Managing certificates is easy through DigiCert API as customers can configure product settings, make requests, request order status’, renew certificates, revoke approve or reject requests, reissue certificates, download certs in different formats, receive notifications, and run scans and view reports. Domain and organization management is simplified by the users ability to add and authorize and enable DNS CNAME domain control validation. Teams and individuals can easily add users, create and revoke API keys, create guest URLs, add divisions and create division Ekeys. Each organization can also customize their account by configuring email notifications, manage password requirements, set up two-factor authentication, configure IP access restrictions and run audits or create audit log notifications.
DigiCert’s REST APIs have been created to simplify certificate management for each user in a way that works best for their organization.
