Your all-in-one certificate management tool
The data of your company and your customers is valuable. Users expect data security and transparency. Not only do information security gaps cost your company money; they also harm your reputation. It is not without reason that the protection of data and data flow in companies is of the utmost importance. With digital certificates, you can guarantee information security and the confidentiality, integrity and authenticity of your sensitive data. In practice however, this involves numerous security certificates and a hefty administrative burden, which poses special challenges for IT. We developed essendi xc to make sure these challenges don’t turn into problems. Our centralized certificate management tool simplifies, automates and optimizes your certificate management. Our software supports you throughout the entire process, from application and renewal to certificate installation, and helps you keep track of your certificates and their periods of validity. Thanks to multi-CA functionality, interfaces for common HSM manufacturers and custom expandability, the application can be tailored to your needs and infrastructure.
What is ‘certificate management’?
Certificate management is part of the security requirements detailed in ISO/IEC 27001.

It is used to set up information security management systems (ISMS) in companies. Cryptography is a key part of the catalogue of measure. Its implementation under ISO/IEC 27001 requires guidelines on the use of cryptographic measures and proper key generation and management. essendi xc supports efficient implementation of cryptography guidelines to help you achieve a suitable level of security for your company. Simple and smart.
