Extended Validation (EV) certificates were launched in January 2007. EV certificates are an effort to define a standard for a high assurance SSL/TLS certificate and create a new trust foundation. The EV Guidelines are managed by the leading browsers and certification authorities (CAs) through the CA/Browser Forum, and have been since launch.
This paper reveals how not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.
This is the second part of the Ponemon Institute’s 2015 Cost of Failed Trust Report, which reveals the damaging impacts on global
business from unprotected cryptographic keys and digital certificates. This new report reveals that most companies lose customers, suffer costly outages, fail audits, and experience breaches due to unprotected and poorly managed keys and certificates.
Properly managed, multi-server and wildcard certificates can provide increased flexibility. Since the consequences of a compromise can be more severe than they would be for a conventional certificate, supplemental safeguards should be employed. In the absence of these safeguards, we do not recommend the use of either multi-server or Wildcard certificates, due to both the security risks involved and the expanded scope of management issues in the wake of a compromise.
Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
We rely on cryptographic keys and digital certificates for encryption and authentication. But certificates can, and do, expire, creating costly outages. Organizations need visibility, continuous surveillance, policy enforcement, and automation to eliminate outages caused by expired certificates and secure their keys and certificates.
See how APT 18 conducted its proof-of-concept attack, learn how attackers bypassed critical security controls and find out how you can eliminate blind spots, reduce risk, and respond and remediate faster.
This whitepaper reveals how Entrust Authority Security Manager helps organisations easily manage their security infrastructure, and allows easy management of the digital keys and certificates that secure user and device identities.

Password-based (PEAP, TTLS) networks experience high rates of user disruption based on password changes. Disconnected devices try to connect back to the network causing severe user disruption. So, what’s the solution to this? Certificate-based wi-fi, of course!

Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone.
These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates.
This white paper highlights:
Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks;
Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors;
How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.
Digital certificates have emerged to serve as the trust foundation for identities, communication, transactions and information security due to their flexibility in terms of deployment and their high level of inherent security.
Entrust IdentityGuard Cloud Services provide digital certificate and identity management solutions that bring together all certificate services, tools and security under a single cloud-based service. It’s a simple, strong and easy solution to issue and manage identities through their lifecycle via the cloud.
The immense popularity of mobile devices has introduced major changes to information technology in all industries, but one clear constant is the need to preserve security. This infographic provides a quick glance at the importance of device certificates in a mobile-powered world.
The use of non-fully qualified domain name (FQDN) certificates is being deprecated by November 1, 2015. Existing certificates containing non-FQDN names will be revoked by all public CAs by October 1, 2016. Entrust provides a straightforward option that allows the continued use of non-registered names by deploying cost-effective Entrust Private SSL Certificates.
Entrust Certificate Services provide one of the industry’s most comprehensive offerings of digital certificates and related services, tools and solutions.
Whether it's a basic SSL certificate, more advanced EV multi-domain SSL certificates, or specialty certificates for secure email, code-signing or Adobe PDFs, Entrust offers a comprehensive portfolio of today's most-used digital certificates. And all are supported by Entrust's world-class service.
To bolster consumer trust in the foundation of ecommerce before it was irreparably damaged, several CAs and browser vendors came together to establish a higher security approach based on common standards: Extended Validation SSL certificates.
EV SSL is universally supported by all desktop browsers and provides an EV trust indication. All mobile browsers support EV SSL and some provide an EV indication.
Extended Validation SSL certificates have the highest impact on consumers, reassuring them that the site they are visiting is legitimate through visual cues in un-modifiable parts of the browser interface “chrome.”
For example, the latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Apple Safari display the corporate name with a green background for sites protected by an Extended Validation SSL certificate.
