Managed PKI Service (MPKI Service) is a globally-trusted cloud based service that enables organizations to issue, renew, and revoke digital certificates used to power strong authentication, encryption, and digital signing applications.
With Managed PKI Service, organizations can securely authenticate users, restrict access to confidential information, and verify the integrity or origination of sensitive documents and emails from all devices. Providing this level of trust-based security enables organizations to facilitate tighter integration with business partners, protect data on managed and unmanaged devices, ensure business continuity, and maintain compliance with government and corporate regulations. Security solutions based on digital certificates are particularly well-suited in addressing these business needs.

Automated Certificate Lifecycle Management
Managed PKI Service automates configuration of common authentication, encryption, and signing applications across multiple platforms and browsers. Using PKI Client, automatically configure a user’s browser, VPN client, mail client, or other application to use certificates issued by the MPKI Service. PKI Client also automates the process of renewing certificates, preventing expired certificates from interrupting business continuity.
Integrate Managed PKI Service with a corporate directory (using the included PKI Enterprise Gateway) to automatically populate certificate meta-data, select and enforce certificate and application policies, and publish issued certificates. PKI Enterprise Gateway also functions as a local registration authority and integrates with hardware security modules to protect key material.

MPKI Service eliminates administrator tasks, and automates the process of provisioning certificates and configuring applications to use those certificates. thus, delivering time-sensitive security projects with less IT or end user intervention. On mobile devices, user certificate enrollment, delivery, and installation is simplified with MPKI mobile-aware certificate service or through integration with the leading MDM solutions.
Maximizes deployment flexibility
MPKI Service enables a higher degree of responsiveness to meet evolving business strategies, and preserve existing investments. Organizations can deliver multiple certificate-based security applications from a unified platform and tailor the deployment to meet their needs.
