Sectigo enables EU customers to retain data sovereignty in the cloud


Sectigo has launched its EU Cloud Platform, marking a significant enhancement to Sectigo’s flagship Certificate Lifecycle Management solution, Sectigo Certificate Manager (SCM).

The launch of Sectigo’s European Cloud Platform provides EU-based Certificate Manager customers access to EU-hosted, cloud-based private PKI, allowing them to maintain data sovereignty and providing increased peace of mind as regulators seek to help EU companies maintain control of their corporate data.

In the wake of recent news of the upcoming reduction in the maximum term for SSL certificates, IT professionals worldwide are looking to understand the consequences of this change to their PKI operations. 

The number of SSL/TLS certificates required for businesses is expected to increase at least fourfold as a direct result of this lifespan change. Certificate Lifecycle Management is set to therefore be an indispensable part of that response. EU businesses will be able to leverage Sectigo’s locally hosted cloud-based CLM to internally scale their PKI requirements, particularly important in the wake of emerging data protection regulation.

“The European Union continues to be a vibrant and important marketplace for Sectigo”, said Kevin Weiss, CEO, Sectigo. “As organisations based in the EU navigate their day-to-day operations while dealing with the changes to SSL certificate lifespans, Sectigo is increasing its investment to ensure our CLM platform meets the latest customer expectations.

“Data sovereignty, compliance, scalability and crypto agility are all important considerations for EU business leaders, and I’m proud to say that this announcement will provide our customers increased peace of mind.” 

Sectigo’s EU Cloud Platform was created by migrating the Certificate Manager Platform entirely to a major public cloud provider and now includes Europe-only options for private PKI to provide customers with reliable uptime, high availability, and scalability while complying with local data privacy regimes.
