In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
• Sectigo IoT Manager is a purpose-built, cloud native identity issuance platform: Digital identities are vital to securing the Internet of Things. Sectigo’s IoT Manager is designed to support the entire ecosystem of organizations involved in the deployment and management of IoT certificates by providing role-based access for administration. The very high issuance rate is coupled with a flexible choice of automated issuance for both full lifecycle or one-time issuance certificates for devices on the factory floor or in the field.
• Sectigo’s S/MIME offering is the world’s only email encryption solution with zero touch installation: Obtaining a S/MIME certificate for digital signing and encryption of emails is only a 10th of the total solution required to solve challenges such as Business Email Compromise (BEC) and GDPR compliance. Sectigo’s S/MIME offering makes it easy by dealing with the complexities of modern email systems by managing multiple user devices, cryptographic keys, and interworking with secure email gateways.
• Sectigo Certificate Manager (SCM) is built for today’s transformational use cases: Sectigo Certificate Manager provides the enterprise one pane of glass for the automated lifecycle management of all digital identities representing servers, users, devices, and IoT. This is achieved by using standards such as EST, SCEP, REST, and MDM across both publicly trusted certificates and private branded certificates. SCM prevents the enterprises from being the next high profile outage due to expired certificates.
