Managed PKI







Managed PKI

Support and Manage Enterprise-wide Certificate Needs

pbDigital’s cloud-based certificate management platform reduces the effort, cost, and time associated with managing multiple enterprise digital certificates. Support for multiple entities under one account and delegated user administrator offer complete, centralised control of certificate needs across your entire organisation.

Instant Issuance of Multi-functional Digital Certificates

Pre-vetted company profiles and domains mean you can immediately issue certificates to accommodate specific department or project needs - SSL, digitally sign and encrypt email (S/MIME), authenticate users and devices to networks, enable mobile security and authentication, digitally sign Microsoft Office and PDF documents, and SmartCard Logon.

APIs & Active Directory Integration

Automate certificate lifecycles and workflows with APIs and integration with Active Directory. By leveraging existing Active Directory investments, you can automatically provision certificates to all domain-connected users, devices, machines, and servers without the burden of managing PKI in-house.

High-volume issuance License

Managed PKI offers significant volume discounts over purchasing individual certificates. You can choose from various purchasing options, including Pay as You Go, deposit method, and unlimited issuance licenses for increased flexibility with budget planning.

Multiple Business Profiles

Register multiple companies or departments (profiles) under one account. Ideal for umbrella entities needing to manage certificates for several subgroups, all certificate activity can be monitored, managed and centralised from just one account.

GlobalSign CustomerID™

Fresh thinking and new approaches are now changing how identity and access management (IAM) solutions are being deployed so that you can enable revenue generating services faster than ever. The success of your business depends upon the ease with which your users can access the online services they need to do business with you.

Providing a positive user experience, reducing the burden on your customer support staff, and offering secure access from any device are essential when selecting an IAM solution.

Self-Service Workflows and Tiered Delegated Administration

These self-service customer relationship management methods can result in up to 500-fold savings compared to physical customer service when dealing with a user base that reaches hundreds, thousands or even millions in numbers.

GlobalSign Trust™

Federated Access Solutions

GlobalSign Trust™ is a control centre for identity federation - transferring identity information across two (or more) independent domains. Customer acquisition becomes up to 100X more cost efficient as registration and login processes of new customers can be performed with just a single click.

An example for a customer transaction is vacation planning, where the user books a flight, reserves a car and books a hotel room using different services. When these services use federation, the user experience is improved and the partner companies can enjoy increased revenues as they enlarge their potential customer base through these partnerships.

100 Times More Cost Efficient Way to Acquire New Customers

  • For consumers, this means seamless access to diverse resources without unnecessary re-authentication
  • For businesses, it is a new way to generate business opportunities by opening the doors of your online service and applications to your trusted partners
  • For government bodies, it is a way to reduce transaction costs for the online services and applications that citizens access

Key Features of GlobalSign Trust

  • Centralised policy management and authorisation
  • Increase service adoption by leveraging existing partner accounts
  • Quickly add social login to your e-services
  • Policy-based access control
  • Standards-based, automated trust relationship management
  • Cloud + SaaS-ready: support for major cloud and SaaS providers
  • GUI Conguration with delegated system administration

Inbound and Outbound Federation

Inbound identity federation lets your local systems accept the credentials of customers from third-party services, such as popular social networking sites, partner organisations, or commercial identity providers like banks and government institutions. Trust is established and controlled through an online interface.

Outbound identity federation enables your user community to access external services such as SaaS applications, cloud providers and partner services using their existing single sign-on session – no username, password or other credentials required. User authorisation information, roles and attributes are controlled according to your local security policy. This eliminates the administrative overheads of account management and increases overall system security.
