MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Entrust with the 2013 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. Entrust offers only high-assurance digital certificates and accompanying solutions that provide strong security and trust services. Entrust is dedicated to offering only high assurance certificates, Organization Validation and Extended Validation, and its public root is ubiquitous on more than 99.9 percent of desktop and mobile browsers. Entrust's organization certificates are also provided as unified communications multi-domain and wildcard certificates. Entrust Certificate Services offers organization and extended validation SSL certificates in multi-form factors, such as wildcard certificates with Subject Alternative Name (SAN) capabilities, as well as SSL certificates such as elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) hybrid SSL certificates. These certificates are compatible on most up-to-date browsers and highly effective when server-load performance is critical and have the added advantage of being provided in the strongest and best performing encryption levels available in SHA-1, SHA-2 and ECC. "Its Certificate Management Service (CMS) and Discovery solutions facilitate certificate management and mitigate the consequences of hitherto inefficient processes or documentation," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Richard Martinez. "CMS gives users the choice of unit-based or concurrent license certificate models, while Discovery allows them to scan internal networks for certificates of all types, regardless of the issuing certification authority." Entrust Discovery also offers a centralized portal in which customers can manage the entire life cycle of all their certificates. It aids the pre-verification of all their certificates so that they can be issued in minutes and sold through Entrust's partners and resellers worldwide. In 2012, Entrust updated Discovery to include certificate chain validation e-mail alerts, automated graphic-based reports, and enabled organizations to delegate responsibilities.
