Here’s how CertAccord Enterprise helped solve the expiring certificate problem for a power company

power utility using certaccord for pki certificate management solution

Power utilities can’t afford outages – and certainly not from expired certificates. Trying to remember where all your non-Microsoft certificates are located and when they are about to expire can be a daunting task.

To solve this problem, one of the nation’s top 5 largest power utilities recently selected Revocent’s CertAccord Enterprise to automate its Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) management. This utility runs its own PKI using Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS), but was struggling to manage a growing number of non-Microsoft endpoints using manual processes.

Now with CertAccord Enterprise, the utility updates Linux and Unix certificates automatically and can continue using ADCS as its PKI foundation rather than completely reconfiguring its environment and forcing team members to learning new processes for managing certificates. This case study walks through just how easy it was for the PKI team to extend Microsoft ADCS certificate enrollment automatically to Linux, Unix, macOS as well as Java apps.
