Integration with Trusted Public Certificate Authorities

PAM360 facilitates end-to-end life cycle management of certificates issued by public certificate authorities. This functionality, powered through seamless API integration with third-party certificate authorities, allows administrators to request, acquire, consolidate, deploy, renew, and track the life cycles of certificates in a centralized fashion directly from the PAM360's web interface. PAM360 currently supports the complete life cycle management of certificates issued by the following certificate authorities: Let's Encrypt, GoDaddy, Thawte, Symantec, RapidSSL, Geotrust, Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA), DigiCert, GlobalSign.

Note: While PAM360 leverages the open APIs of Let's Encrypt and GoDaddy to establish a connection, the tie-in with rest of the certificate authorities is powered through an integration with The SSL Store™ , a platinum partner of the above mentioned certificate authorities.
