What is an Entrust ECS Portal and How Does it Work?


Explore the core capabilities of the Entrust ECS Portal, a solution built for efficient digital certificate management, and learn how organizations across sectors are leveraging it to enhance their security infrastructure.

The Entrust Certificate Services (ECS) Portal is a tool made for the management of digital security certificates. It simplifies the handling of a diverse selection of certificates, SSL/TLS, code signing, and document signing certificates, to name a few. The portal allows you to issue , renew , and revoke certificates with ease.

SSL/TLS Certificates

SSL/TLS Certificates are key in securing communication. Using the ECS Portal, organizations secure their websites, apps, and online services. For example, an e-commerce business will use the ECS Portal to manage its SSL/TLS certificates which safeguard user transactions and private customer data.

Code Signing Certificates

Code Signing Certificates validate the integrity of software and digital scripts. Software development firms use the ECS Portal to manage these certificates, solidifying user trust.

Document Signing Certificates

Document Signing Certificates guarantee the authenticity of signed digital documents. An architect or engineering firm , for instance, will use the ECS Portal to manage these certificates, strengthening the credibility of digitally shared legal documents.

Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) Certificates

S/MIME , or Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions, enable the security of email communication. An organization, like a healthcare firm, can use the ECS Portal to manage S/MIME certificates, ensuring patient data confidentiality in shared emails.

IoT Device Certificates

IoT Device Certificates authenticate and identify devices in the IoT sphere. Manufacturers can leverage the ECS Portal to handle these certificates, reinforcing their network against intrusion.

Wildcard Certificates

Wildcard Certificates protect a domain and all its subdomains. A business with a large number of subdomains will use the ECS Portal for managing its wildcard certificates in order to maintain comprehensive security.

Multi-Domain (SAN) Certificates

Multi-Domain (SAN) Certificates secure multiple domains and subdomains. A corporation with several web properties will use the ECS Portal to oversee their SAN certificates, securing all its digital real estate with a single certificate.

PKI Solutions

PKI Solutions offer a framework for sturdy security environment management. A multinational corporation, for example, could use the Entrust’s PKI solutions to oversee identities and transactions.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) Solutions

IAM Solutions , or Identity and Access Management, govern digital identities and access to resources. A cloud services provider will apply IAM solutions to restrict resource access to authorized users only.

Digital Signatures

Digital Signatures certify the authenticity of digital messages or documents. A government agency will use digital signatures to confirm official communications and documents.

Mobile Device Certificates

Mobile Device Certificates secure mobile devices in an organization. A tech company with a BYOD policy will employ these certificates to ensure safe access to company resources.

The ECS Portal streamlines digital certificate management. It augments an organization’s security posture while reducing administrative overhead.
