Entrust Is 68% Faster than Average of Top CAs … Whoa, that is Fast.


Entrust not only makes a habit of being globally trusted, it’s our mission to be fast, too. That’s why we’re partners with two of the world’s top content delivery networks.

It’s all part of our dedication to SSL customers — and our promise to provide your site’s visitors a reliable, lightning-quick experience.


Super-Fast Response

Entrust’s average response time for checking the revocation status of SSL certificates is 68 percent faster* than the average of other leading CAs. That’s because Entrust’s Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) is integrated with the world’s top content delivery networks (CDN), including Akamai, which dramatically improves global performance and stability.

Website performance is directly impacted by the speed of the revocation checks, and the site’s uptime is affected by the resiliency of a revocation service.

Reliable Uptime

You rely on your website. That’s why Entrust provides reliable uptime with a fast, trusted and reliable revocation process. Revocation services, which vary between CAs, are critical to customer security. When there’s an outage of an OCSP service or the revocation check doesn’t receive a response, the affected Web page will not load.

Industry Leadership

Entrust has long been a leader in the adoption and promotion of the standards critical to the SSL trust infrastructure. Entrust is also the first North American certification authority (CA) to complete a third-party audit to verify compliance with the CA/Browser Forum’s newest SSL standards, “Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates.”

Speed. Proven by the numbers.

Entrust’s CDNs operate in hundreds of data centers throughout the world. Because OCSP responses are cached within our CDN data centers worldwide, when a user asks for the revocation status of a certificate, the response is provided to the user with minimal response times. The CDN constantly adjusts for Internet bottlenecks and routes the users to the most efficient datacenter for that user, thus improving performance globally. Regardless of the site visitor’s location, Entrust CDNs make cached content (OCSP response) available as quickly as possible.
