Entrust Datacard, a leading provider of trusted identity and secure transaction technology solutions, announced that the company’s Entrust Certificate Services™ platform has integrated with ConnectWise, a company that transforms how technology solution providers build, manage, and grow their businesses. The new integration for ConnectWise Manage is designed to make it easier to order and manage SSL/TLS certificates. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) will have the ability to order, quote, and setup expiration notifications to centrally manage clients’ digital certificates.

Maintaining security for multiple client websites is challenging to keep up with. Digital certificates are often managed in multiple places, or managed manually, making it more difficult to stay on top of the certificate expirations and obsolete technology that cause business disruptions. Certificate Management — in a “single pane of glass” — displays the key information needed for active SSL/TLS management when and where it’s most needed. Through centralized certificate management, users will be able to:

  • Place orders and manage expirations and certificate details in ConnectWise Manage
  • Automatically configure records in ConnectWise Manage to track certificate expiry (available in early 2018)
  • Issue one-click certificate quoting, ready for forwarding (available in early 2018)
  • Provide unlimited servers licensing and unlimited reissues

“The Entrust Certificate Services integration with ConnectWise Manage eliminates error-prone, manual processes for SSL/TLS certificates,” said Sam Morcos, senior vice president and general manager, certificate services for Entrust Datacard. “Entrust Certificate Services makes it easy to not only solve this problem, but gives MSPs the tools to be proactive about maintaining their clients’ encryption security while simplifying customers’ expansion purchases and renewals.”

The integration offers complete certificate lifecycle management: creation, re-issuance, revocation, and renewal. The Entrust Certificate Services solution also includes an option for malware scanning and reputation monitoring powered by SiteLock.

“The simplicity of Entrust Datacard’s new integration is going to be key for our partners,” said Gavin Gamber, vice president of channel sales and alliances for ConnectWise. “TSPs just have to configure the ConnectWise settings in the partner portal and begin ordering, tracking, and renewing customers’ Entrust SSL certificates right in ConnectWise Manage.”
