Automating SSL/TLS Certificate Lifecycles for Outage-Free Applications and Networks

All it takes is ONE expired certificate.

If we’ve learnt anything from the recent certificate expiry-induced network outages, it is that no business, however powerful it may be, is immune to them. The most recent example is Google Voice, whose TLS/SSL certificate expiry caused an outage that lasted for over four hours.

When it comes to preventing outages, certificate management alone doesn’t cut it. The expiring certificates need to be renewed on time, and where manual fails, automation chips in.

This guide will help you understand the importance of certificate lifecycle automation and take you through the various levels of automation that solutions offer, their merits, and drawbacks.

You’ll learn about:

  • Why certificate management without automation is certificate mismanagement
  • Partner-dependent automation vs native automation - time, costs, and other factors
