MINNEAPOLIS – (September 3, 2020) – Entrust Datacard today announced an alliance with ConnectWise, making it the first Certificate Authority (CA) to provide Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with a native experience for ordering, tracking and managing Entrust TLS/SSL certificates directly within the ConnectWise Marketplace.

Staying on top of digital certificate expirations can be challenging if not managed properly, particularly when using manual tracking methods or managing them in multiple places. Managing certificates through a single pane of glass provides MSPs the trust necessary to feel confident that client business will run seamlessly and without disruption. Entrust Datacard first integrated it's Entrust Certificate Services™ platform with ConnectWise in 2017, providing a centralized way for MSPs to manage their client's digital certificates. With this new alliance, Entrust Datacard has its integration with ConnectWise to deliver a native, in-marketplace experience.

"Building upon our partnership with ConnectWise provides MSPs the ability to maintain web security for multiple clients while minimizing the cost of supporting TLS/SSL certificates with shorter validity periods, said Jay Schiavo, Vice President of Certificate Solutions at Entrust Datacard. "This partnership brings streamlined certificate management to the ConnectWise Marketplace so MSPs can stay ahead of certificate renewals, thereby avoiding outages, maintaining critical infrastructure for clients and enabling faster adoption of new MSPs."

"Together with Entrust Datacard, we've made the process of proactively maintaining SSL connections easy," said Travis Vigneau, Director, Solution Partner Strategy at ConnectWise. "Now MSPs have the necessary tool at their fingertips to protect client encryption security with easy on-boarding, automatic configuration of records in for easy expiry tracking, and complete certificate lifecycle management – all within the ConnectWise Marketplace."
