HID Global, a globally trusted identity solutions firm, has announced that its IdenTrust business is the #1 digital certification authority in the world, according to the latest independent research results from W3Techs, a technology survey company that consistently tracks the SSL certificate market.

IdenTrust’s leap to be the market leader for digital certificates signifies only the second time in the history of the Internet that the top position for the Certification Authority has changed – first in 2015 by a competitor and now to IdenTrust after a fast-paced growth trajectory over the past two years. The W3Techs quantitative research revealed the following facts:

  • IdenTrust is now used by 17.5% of all websites, globally.
  • IdenTrust is also the number one SSL certificate authority overall in most European countries.
  • Nearly 23% of all new sites use IdenTrust digital certificates.
  • IdenTrust has issued more than 36.4% of all SSL certificates worldwide.

Seamless Integration

Becoming the #1 Certification Authority for SSL certificates makes HID’s IdenTrust among the most trusted digital certificate providers in the world,” said Brad Jarvis, Vice President and Managing Director, IAM Solutions with HID Global. “Third parties trust our digital certificates because they are reliable, easy to integrate and compliant with standards. Our customers trust us to provide digital certificate services from a secure and scalable platform capable of meeting the needs of their dynamic business environments.

This achievement reflects the changing landscape of SSL certificate usage, with more emphasis on automated processes and the value of the IdenTrust infrastructure and broader partner network associated with HID Global. One aspect of the changing landscape is how tens of thousands of websites are reportedly going to find themselves labelled as “unsafe” next month, due to a decision in September 2017 by Google to cease trusting certificates from a former market leader.

IdenTrust digital certificates support real-time validation of internet traffic on a scalable, software-as-a-service platform. IdenTrust helps create a trusted environment that secures business- and life-critical data.

Enhanced Data Protection

When IdenTrust digital certificates are combined with HID’s identity & access management platform, the company is able to scale to the requirements of the industry’s most challenging environments, such as certificate-based authentication for complex enterprise data protection and for the protection of billions of connections.

IdenTrust’s ascension to the top spot also affirms the confidence that the market has in the vendor with the widest range of authentication solutions in the industry – none other than HID Global,” added Jarvis. "Our IAM products are marked by resilience and enhanced security features.

HID’s IdenTrust digital certificates are widely recognized by government agencies, global financial institutions and corporations around the world

Identity Authentication

IdenTrust digital certificates are particularly relevant for surveillance (cameras, access), transportation (air, cars and trains), healthcare and financial services. The rapid expansion of mobile is also driving the increased adoption of digital certificates.

HID’s IdenTrust digital certificates are widely recognized by government agencies, global financial institutions and corporations around the world.  IdenTrust products enable organizations to effectively manage the risks associated with identity authentication, work interoperability with countries around the world, minimized investment in creating their own policies, legal frameworks and ensure trust in the identity of a person or thing.
