Entrust Recognized as a Leader in Global Holistic Transport Layer Security (TLS) Certificate Market by Frost & Sullivan
In a field of more than 10 global industry participants, Frost & Sullivan independently plotted the Top 7 companies in its analysis. Noting the company's unwavering focus on high assurance certificates and disruptive innovation, Entrust received the highest score on the growth index, making it the second largest Certification Authorities (CA) in the global holistic TLS certificate market with a 14.4% market share.
As the report notes, it is imperative to maintain the chain of trust in Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), especially as security compromises can lead to loss of credibility among customers. With more than 10,000 enterprise customers using Entrust solutions to enable trusted identities, payments, and data protection, the report highlights the company's growth pipeline, including product development to address customer pain points. This innovation has delivered new use cases such as PKI as a Service (PKIaaS), Digital Signing as a Service (DSaaS), Verified Mark Certificates (VMC), certificate life-cycle management and automation, and expansion of partner integrations, which drive TLS certificate usage and customer adoption.
The Entrust technology roadmap supports expanded certificate usage, life-cycle automation, and ease of use and control, which will deliver faster time to value for customers. As such, the company has introduced more as-a-service use cases, such as PKIaaS and DSaS. Additionally, the report highlights how Entrust product development is aligned with industry trends such as growing PKI adoption and proliferation of IoT devices, certificate management automation, and enterprise cloud adoption.
"Entrust has secured the second highest market share in the global holistic TLS certificate market. The CA has recorded consistent growth in the last three years, powered by a strong vision to keep the world moving safely by enabling seamless and secure transactions," said Swetha Krishnamoorthi, Senior Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan's Security Practice. "The growing volume and variety of devices deployed in organizations demand a correspondingly large number and types of certificates. Therefore, organizations prefer to have a single-stop destination for all types of certificates to reduce the complexity of certificate lifecycle management. Entrust offers an extensive portfolio that includes certificates such as DV, OV, EV, S/MIME, digital signatures, qualified certificates, code signing certificates, and IoT certificates. In addition, Entrust Certificate Services (ECS) platform is CA-agnostic. It offers a seamless and single-pane-of-glass user interface to manage multiple certificate types across both on-prem and cloud-based environments. Entrust has consistently demonstrated its commitment to innovation, thereby recording a high score on the innovation index of the Frost Radar."
Frost & Sullivan also pointed out that Entrust is the only vendor in its study to offer a Cryptographic Centre of Excellence to accelerate PKI and cryptography discovery, strategy, and management efforts. Entrust is also one of the two vendors reviewed offering Verified Mark Certificates to support strong identity in email.
"With over 50 years of experience in providing solutions for high trust environments, it's pleasing to see this report acknowledge that our offerings are built on top of a robust infrastructure and that highly security-conscious organizations such as Microsoft, Visa, Mastercard, VMWare, and more rely on Entrust for their PKI needs demonstrates the reliability we offer," said Jay Schiavo, vice president of products for certificate solutions, Entrust. "This recognition from Frost & Sullivan reinforces the fact that our TLS/SSL encryption protection goes beyond the certificate. Rather, we continue to innovate an advanced certificate management solution to provide security beyond the certificate."
