Advanced on-demand SSL Certificate management platform allows instant issuance whilst reducing SSL management and inventory costs

Yahoo! JAPAN is a great customer example that showcases the scalability of GlobalSign’s MSSL solution giving large enterprises the ability to simplify the SSL lifecycle including purchasing, deployment, renewal and expiry of SSL Certificates

GlobalSign (, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Certificate security, today announced that Yahoo Japan Corporation has adopted its innovative Managed SSL Service, significantly decreasing the time and resources typically associated with managing and deploying multiple SSL Certificates.

GlobalSign’s Managed SSL Service solution also known as MSSL, allows instant issuance of Extended Validation and Organisation Validated SSL Certificates. Whilst traditional SSL Certificate ordering requires organisations to submit documents to the SSL provider for each and every certificate to be verified, which may take several days to complete, MSSL makes it possible to issue GlobalSign’s ExtendedSSL and OrganizationSSL Certificates 24/7/365, as domain names and organisational information is registered and pre-vetted in advance.

Large and distributed organisations including Yahoo! JAPAN possess sizeable quantities of web servers and web services requiring SSL, creating extensive pressures for IT Infrastructure managers to control, budget for and oversee multiple SSL Certificate lifecycle management for each department and related companies. By implementing GlobalSign’s automated web service API for MSSL, Yahoo! JAPAN was able to fully customise the process of ordering and obtaining SSL Certificates to suit their individual business needs, significantly saving time and lowering costs compared to purchasing individual certificates.

“We are delighted to welcome another prestigious brand on board to use our advanced on-demand SSL management platform”, said Ichiro Chujo, Group CEO and CEO of GlobalSign Japan. “Yahoo! JAPAN is a great customer example that showcases the scalability of GlobalSign’s MSSL solution giving large enterprises the ability to simplify the SSL lifecycle including purchasing, deployment, renewal and expiry of SSL Certificates. As online security is at the top of the agenda for organisations worldwide, GlobalSign is dedicated to making the process of obtaining and managing SSL Certificates as straightforward as possible.”

Additional features and benefits of GlobalSign’s Managed SSL Service include the ability to centralise management by setting up multiple company profiles for the most complex of organisation, advanced delegated user administration with granular privileges, multiple certificate application methods and much more, all through one easy to use cloud-based solution.
