dbo:abstract
  • DigiCert Inc. ist ein amerikanischer Anbieter von Secure-Sockets-Layer (SSL)-Zertifikaten. Er wird von etwa 8,0 % aller Webseiten benutzt, darunter Facebook und Twitter. Im deutschsprachigen Bereich nutzen große Seiten wie bild.de, Spiegel Online und 20min.ch Zertifikate von DigiCert. Das Unternehmen wurde 2003 von Ken Bretschneider gegründet und hat seinen Sitz in Lehi in Utah. Am 2. August 2017 gab DigiCert die Übernahme des Geschäftsbereichs für Website Security und PKI-Angebote des bisherigen Mitbewerbers Symantec bekannt. Dabei handelt es sich im Wesentlichen um die 2010 durch Symantec vom US-Unternehmen Verisign erworbene Sparte für SSL-Verschlüsselung. DigiCert bezahlt der Übernahmevereinbarung zufolge 950 Millionen Dollar im Voraus. Außerdem erhält Symantec nach Abschluss der Transaktion einen Anteil von rund 30 Prozent an DigiCert. (de)

These certificates are used to verify and authenticate the identities of organizations and domains and to protect the privacy and data integrity of users’ digital interactions with web browsers, email clients, documents, software programs, apps, networks and connected IoT devices. The company's products and services also include private and managed PKI deployments, the DigiCert CertCentral certificate management platform, the DigiCert PKI Platform and full customer support. In 2019, the company announced a new R&D division called DigiCert Labs, "... an initiative dedicated to researching and developing innovative approaches to security challenges." DigiCert Labs will collaborate with other enterprise labs – including Microsoft Research, Utimaco, ISARA and Gemalto – and make grants to universities for the study of topics related to authentication, data integrity, encryption and identity. Initial research projects will focus on post-quantum cryptography and machine learning. DigiCert is a member of the CA/Browser Forum, an industry consortium that creates guidelines and standards for participating certificate authorities and web browsers. Dean Coclin, Sr. Director of Business Development at DigiCert, will serve as Vice-Chairperson of the CA/Browser Forum from Nov. 1, 2018 until Oct. 31, 2020. On August 28, 2015, in one of the largest investments in a Utah-based company to date, private equity firm Thoma Bravo acquired a majority stake in DigiCert, with TA Associates a leading global growth private equity firm, holding a minority share. Thoma Bravo was quoted as saying, "DigiCert represents an outstanding investment opportunity to back a market leader… known for its consistent innovation and first-rate customer service." In 2019, Clearlake Capital Group, L.P., a leading private investment firm, and TA Associates, an existing investor, reached an agreement to make a strategic growth investment in DigiCert. As part of the transaction, Clearlake and TA Associates become equal partners in the company. DigiCert Inc. is of no relation to Digicert Sdn. Bhd, a Malaysian-based certification authority that issues certificates with weak keys and had its trust revoked by web browsers. (en)
