“Independent acknowledgment of IdenTrust as the fastest-growing certification authority validates our strategy of combining IdenTrust into our IAM identity platform and the value of our digital certificates.” – Brad Jarvis, Vice President and Managing Director, IAM Solutions with HID Global
HID Global‘s IdenTrust platform has been named the “fastest-growing digital certification authority in the world” by technology survey firm W3Techs, the company has announced.
HID Global says its platform has been used to issue 33 percent of all SSL certificates worldwide, and that it “protects 15.2% of all websites in existence,” according to a statement from the company.
Commenting on IdenTrust’s place in W3Tech’s ‘power-rankings’ for web technologies, HID Global IAM Solutions VP Brad Jarvis asserted that the independent acknowledgement “validates our strategy of combining IdenTrust into our IAM identity platform and the value of our digital certificates.” Jarvis added that HID Global’s “ability to handle this growth without skipping a beat demonstrates the platform’s ability to scale to the requirements of the industry’s most challenging environments such as protecting the Internet of Things with billions of connections.”
News of W3Tech’s accolades arrives after one of key members of HID Global’s IdenTrust team testified at an FDA hearing on America’s opioid abuse crisis, where the representative urged policymakers to embrace the use of digital certificates in tracking electronic prescriptions.
