DigiCert Named 2020 Global Company of the Year in TLS Certificate Market
DigiCert’s customer-focused strategy, feature-rich solutions and agile processes give it a distinct competitive advantage in the global market.
Frost & Sullivan recognizes DigiCert with the 2020 Global Company of the Year Award, based on its recent analysis of the global transport layer security (TLS) certificate market. DigiCert has exhibited strong market leadership in its growth, supporting the adoption of new standards and continually innovating with the industry’s best, most modern public key infrastructure (PKI) technology. In addition to the strength in the TLS/SSL market, the company is also focused on new security technologies, such as protecting devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) and developing implementations of post-quantum cryptography (PQC). By developing these technologies and helping define standards to address new security use cases, the company is strengthening its leadership position within internet security.
“Leveraging its superior technology, customizing it to regional markets and building a best-in-class customer support system, DigiCert has captured the business of 89% of the Fortune 500 companies and the world’s most recognized brands,” said Swetha Krishnamoorthi, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Further, DigiCert has successfully integrated the technology strengths of the former Symantec TLS and PKI business to provide an unequaled product portfolio and scalability for partners and customers. DigiCert’s certificates and management tools support a wide range of enterprise needs and use cases, ranging from standard TLS to compliance-specific use cases such as Google AMP and EU-trusted qualified certificates for natural persons, legal entities or web authentication (QWACs). The company also supports cloud-based code signing, remote document signing, a host of IoT device authentication and encryption scenarios, large enterprise secure remote access, secure email and much more.”
DigiCert has upgraded its infrastructure in a way not seen in its industry to support large installations, regionally-focused deployments and high-volume, rapid certificate enrollments for the world’s largest web platform companies. The company’s agile product development process allows it to roll out changes and product updates more quickly than competitors. This strategy has helped the company create the industry’s first PQC toolkit, which enables companies to create hybrid certificates for testing in their systems. DigiCert actively engages with industry standards and regulatory bodies to drive the creation and support of new standards and ensure a safe internet and IoT for consumers, including the CA/Browser Forum, IETF, W3C, ASCX9, PCI Council, SAE, CableLabs, CI+, AeroMACS, WinnForum, Industrial Internet Consortium, APWG and NIST NCCoE.
“With its multi-pronged approach to innovation, DigiCert has developed a hyper-converged, agile infrastructure that promises reliability, scalability, resiliency and shorter response time for its customers,” noted Swetha. “Its emphasis on user experience and a customer-first approach to product development will ensure its continued domination of the digital certificate market in the long term.”
