End-to-end management of digital certificates on ServiceNow

ServiceNow customers, leveraging ITSM and ITOM capabilities to run complex infrastructure, often need management of digital certificates. The certificates have varying periods of validity based on company policies and cost considerations, which would require managing SSL/TLS certificates across complex networks to prevent unanticipated failures and production outages.

nCert, a ServiceNow certified app, solves this problem and allows users to track and manage the lifecycle of digital certificates from within the ServiceNow platform. For achieving this, nCert integrates with Venafi, one of the leading providers for Machine Identity protection.
