(The Hosting News) – SSL provider GlobalSign on Wednesday announced the launch of its Auto Enrollment Gateway – a tool that helps enterprises reduce risks regarding data breaches and outages by automating certificate lifecycle management via the Microsoft Active Directory.
Among the primary benefits of the solution, otherwise known as AEG, are risk mitigation, costing savings and enhanced productivity.
“Most enterprises are not proactively managing the risks associated with these attacks and are unprepared to respond quickly to a compromise,” commented Aberdeen Group VP and research fellow Derek E. Brink via a press release.
Brink continued, “By allowing enterprises to place the operational aspects of managing certificates into the hands of experts, while retaining enterprise control over group policies managed in Active Directory, GlobalSign is aiming to accommodate future growth in the use of certificates while addressing the practical issues of security and trust in an efficient, cost-effective deployment model.”
