Largest Insurer in the United Kingdom Uses Comodo for Certificate Lifecycle Management

Digital Certificates Help Keep Online Experiences Secure

With the explosion of the world wide web and Internet technology, collaboration and sharing of information both inside the walls of organizations and outside are being conducted at rapid rates. This leads to more and more opportunities for cyber theft, malware and corporate sabotage. In order to have these online transactions conducted securely, digital certificates are used to authenticate the identity of a website and encrypt information that is sent back and forth over the server. The numbers of certificates used by organizations vary, from a single digit number to tens of thousands of certificates,– all of these certificates need to be managed to keep track of when the expiration and renewal dates. The Comodo Certificate Manager (CCM) is the optimum solution for the management and deployment of digital certificates.

Challenge:

As the Aviva organization added more clients and continued to grow, the organization outgrew its IT infrastructure and needed to add more network and IT capabilities, specifically when it came to the management process around its digital certificates. Aviva no longer had a single location or management system for all of its certificates, thus experiencing higher costs associated with individualized certificates delay in certificate signing request turn-around times for the issuance of new SSL certificates. Aviva was in need of a new management solution for its certificates
