Our certificate service helps education, public sector and not-for-profit organisations keep web and email services secure, so confidential data can be sent safely via the internet.
Whether you are looking to take control of your budgets, save money or make managing your certificates easier by having them all in one place, we’re here to help.
Putting you in control
The self-service approach lets you view and manage your account whenever and wherever you need to via a secure online portal. This means you can:
Make certificate management easy with a central location - you can easily look up certificates that aren't covered by the service using the discovery function
Gain control and flexibility – with control of domain validation and finer-grained management within your organisation
Save time through automation – reduce the admin burden on staff and save time by using ACME to automatically issue organisation validated (OV) and extended validation (EV) certificates
Manage your budgets better – as well as several pricing bands, the subscription model allows you to auto-renew, so you can relax and forget about having to buy or top up credits
Budget better and even save money
Jisc is all about delivering value for money - in 2019/20 alone, we saved the UK research and education sector over £5.2million through the certificate service based on the average certificate price from the commercial market.
Using the revised subscription model, one certificate is tallied against your usage class, regardless of the certificate type or how many SANs you may use, meaning you may well save money through our service. Typically, customers find our certificates cost 30-60% less than those offered by commercial providers, depending on the number and certificate types required through the year.
Just select the pricing band that meets your current needs – and change bands later if you need to.
