Users of HID Global’s cloud-based PKIaaS offering can now automate their digital certificate lifecycle management with the Microsoft Intune mobile device and application management service.

HID’s PKIaaS platform offers a simple subscription model for automating digital certificate management across large numbers of mobile devices using Microsoft’s Intune service. This solution eliminates the need for human intervention when issuing and renewing certificates that allow employees to use their mobile devices to access their organization’s resources through Wi-Fi networks or virtual private network (VPN) connections, without passwords.

Intune is a cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) service that integrates with Azure AD to control how organizations’ devices are used. It also allows administrators to push digital certificates to mobile phones and tablets and laptops to provide access to Wi-Fi networks and VPNs.

HID is a Microsoft-approved third-party certification authority (CA) partner supporting the Intune service and its use of the Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP). Out-of-the-box integration with Intune, Azure AD, and third-party SCEP servers enables the HID service to seamlessly automate all certificate provisioning and renewal. The HID service also enables users to scale their PKI-based strong authentication and encryption capabilities so they can secure hundreds of applications and up to tens of thousands of workstations, mobile devices and other endpoints.

HID’s PKIaaS platform supports both privately issued and trusted Transport Layer Security/Secure Socket Layer (TLS/SSL) certificates, and also hosts private Intermediate Certificate Authorities (ICAs).
