SSL certificates have moved beyond the ‘Buy’ page. They are embedded in your business. For example, they protect remote communications via webmail, chat and IM. Browser-to-server communications for cloud-based services require SSL certificates to protect confidential information. In addition, SSL certificates are used to secure server-to server communications for applications and data exchange.

In fact, SSL Certificates are a business-critical part of your IT infrastructure. However, managing individual certificates in a large organization is complicated by multiple locations, many servers, different business units, and rapidly growing Web-based services.

The risks of hiccups and problems increase with the number of certificates, including:

• Lost sales when customers see security warnings about expired certificates on your site.
• Damage to your brand and consumer trust because of problems with certificates.
• Unnecessary (and expensive) calls to technical support or customer services.
• Server, email or system outages when third-party systems refuse to connect with yours because of an expired certificate.
• An increased risk of accidental data disclosure.
