Active Administrator for Certificate Management

Easily manage digital certificate lifecycles with a single console

As an IT admin you have limited options for digital certificate management across your organization. Without valid certificates in place, you are vulnerable to security breaches and loss of customer confidence.

Active Administrator for Certificate Management provides a single console for complete digital certificate lifecycle management. Part of the Active Administrator family of Active Directory management solutions, Certificate Management helps you prevent security breaches and maintain customer confidence by ensuring that encrypted communications and transactions remain secure. You get a central, searchable repository for storing digital certificates, alerts on expiring certificates, recovery of deleted certificates and easy deployment of certificates to new servers.

Certificate discovery

Use a single console to discover and manage certificates across the enterprise, regardless of which certificate authority issued it.

Certificate expiration

Alert and report on expired certificates or those about to expire.

Certificate recovery

Recover certificates deleted outside of the management console by restoring daily backups.

Certificate deployment

Easily copy one or multiple certificates from any server onto additional servers.
