Appendix 1 - Comodo EPKI Manager - Overview
Comodo EPKI Manager
Instant security for your web operations, internal networks and employee’s email.
The EPKI Manager provides instant security for your web operations, internal networks and employee’s email, giving you full access to an outsourced Certificate Authority platform for all your digital certificate requirements.
When considering the implementation options for a digital certificate solution, you will make the choice to opt for an in-house PKI model, or a fully managed outsourced model. Following the in-house option will see enormous costs in time, management, legal fees, development and operational costs. To avoid such barriers for the widespread use of Certificates within an organization, Comodo has developed the enterprise class EPKI Manager - a web based console used to interface with the Comodo Certificate Authority.
- Easy to use web based console
- Issue high quality, fully trusted SSL Certificates
- Issue Corporate SecureEmail Certificates quickly to employees and partners
- Create / manage "sub users" and assign specific issuance and reporting permissions to your users
- Gain savings on standard Certificate buy prices
- No extra software / hardware required
- Open an EPKI Manager account in minutes
- Full reporting / Certificate management
With the EPKI, there is no need to invest in expensive hardware, software, expertise and Certification Authority management associated with providing your own certificate solutions. The EPKI Manager allows you to issue Certificates for use within your intranets, extranets, and websites or employees email clients. Comodo already provides industry-leading prices for Certificates; however the EPKI Manager provides even greater discounts on all Certificates.
Organizations opting for the EPKI Manager can benefit from the convenience of having their nominated EPKI Manager Administrator(s) manage all the company's Certificates from a central web based console. The User Management facility allows the Administrator to create new sub-users for the EPKI Manager, each with granular permissions for issuance, revocation and reporting - allowing the enterprise to operate a distributed EPKI without the compromise of security for critical applications.
Additional certificates may be purchased through the console in minutes, ensuring new web servers, employees or internal resources may be secured in minutes rather than days.
Secure Your Enterprise Intranets, Extranets & Websites
SSL Certificates are the industry standard technology used to secure communications between browsers and web servers, whether it via the Internet or internally through intranet or extranets. Some organizations will require multiple SSL Certificates to secure multiple servers, spanning intranets, extranets, web server operations and load balancing. To meet the needs of your organization, the EPKI Manager allows you to procure SSL Certificates on demand.
Secure Your Enterprise Email
The need for email to be secure, confidential and integral is a growing concern for almost every organization. Comodo Corporate SecureEmail Certificates address this critical problem and provide the ability to secure and digitally sign email and attachments using any popular mail client. The EPKI Manager provides convenient and secure access to your own web-based console to administer your Corporate SecureEmail Certificates to employees and partners.
Assure Customers and Partners of Your Identity
Assuring customers of your identity is an essential factor for successful online business. Certificates issued through the EPKI Manager help assure customers of your online and email identity, leading to a higher confidence in who you are. Through the user-friendly interface you can issue digital certificates to web servers, internal servers, employees and partners, certificates that in turn represent the identities and credentials of their owner.
