Reasons for Choosing Digi-CA™

Read more on why you should choose Digi-Sign

Digi-CAST™ methodology   This project methodology will greatly improve the PKI & CA knowledge in your organisation because it involves your staff at every stage and openly shares real knowledge
Compliance & Standards   Following all necessary international industry standards, Digi-CA™ can easily fit into almost any certificated IT infrastructure and will work seamlessly within that environment
Centralised Management   Web based ‘system management centre’ for all operated CAs, RAs & LRAs makes it ideal for operation as a standalone CA Software system or as a Managed CA
‘futureproof’   By its very design, the entire Digi-CA™ system can be in house, totally out sourced or a combination of the two and this can be decided at any stage during the life of the system. So you can purchase what you need today, safe in the knowledge that you can easily migrate and move all or part of the system to meet future demands
Easy migration from RSA Keon®, VeriSign®, Entrust®, Microsoft®, etc   Digi-CA™ is probably the only commercial CA system specifically designed to migrate any Traditional CA environment (for example RSA Keon®, VeriSign®, Entrust®, Microsoft®, etc) into a newly setup Digi-CA™ system by complying with international industry standards
Ease of integration   Whether now or in the future, because it is LDAPv3 compliant, Digi-CA™ can publish X.509 certificates and Certificate Revocation Lists [CRL] to other directories. This is a significant factor when considering integration with existing or future environments
Scalability   Digi-CA™ is the only software that can scale a ‘live’ production environment from 100s to 1,000,000s of users without any service interruption. This is important when considering the future growth an continued operation of your environment and requirements
Continuous operation   Live production can also continue uninterrupted while adding more CAs, RAs and LRAs. This is again true during cross certification and even when adding additional hardware to expand the system capacity and services. When considering the future growth of your environment, these capabilities ensure the CA remains operational and without interruption throughout
Customisation to your requirements   Custom multi-layer CA hierarchy, RA and LRA distribution is possible and can be modified, extended and changed at any stage, any time, by your trained CA Administrators. This can also be done without affecting the operation of the live environment
‘look & feel’ customisation   The entire Digi-CA™ system interfaces and all its levels can be easily changed using Cascade Style Sheet [CSS]. This ability to completely change the ‘look and feel’ of the system eases the deployment to your end users because they know you but may not be familiar with the CA vendor.  It also helps with integrating into web sites and other online systems seamlessly
Multiple Languages   Language localisation is “plug n’ play” for displaying all interfaces in your desired language(s). This further helps the deployment to end users and reduces 'help desk calls' (where users are really looking for translation of help files, etc)
Custom profile, enrolment & DN capabilities supplied as standard   Certificate profiles and enrolment policies can be customised and therefore full custom certificate subject Distinguished Name [DN] attributes and certificate extensions are possible. This is particularly important when meeting national & international standards and the cost of providing these capabilities from other systems can be considerable
CA Flexibility   Ability to operate multiple independent CA hierarchies from a single system instance without the need of installing multiple software applications on multiple server computers to run each CA hierarchy
RA Flexibility   Multiple independent Registration Authority [RA] instances from a single system without needing to install multiple applications on multiple servers to run each RA
100% browser independent   100% certificate enrolment web browser platform and operating system independency
Root CA cross certification   Digi-CA™ offers the capability of cross certification between any existing Root CA and any other CA
Trusted Root capability   Also it can be cross certified by a Trusted Root CA of issuing trusted SSLs and secure, signed and/or encrypted email
Minimal Hardware costs   Due to its modern design, the fact that the software is written in low level C on UNIX and the fact that it does not use middleware, the hardware required to run and operate Digi-CA™ is considerably less than the hardware requirements of equivalent CA systems
Best training & knowledge transfer   With the largest online searchable PKI & CA KnowledgeBase, the extensive documentation offered, the Digi-TaSC system and the many different types of training offered, this proposal offers the most comprehensive that programme for your personnel
Overall most capable & most competitively priced   Digi-CA™ achieves the best blend of meeting your current requirements and possible future ones too. It’s highly customisable and flexible features means it will meet future demands easily, without incurring downtime, service interruption or unwieldy costs
