AUSTIN, Texas—HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, announced that users of its cloud-based PKIaaS offering can now automate the lifecycle management of digital certificates used with devices managed via the Microsoft Intune mobile device and application management service.

The HID solution eliminates the need for human intervention when issuing and renewing certificates that enable employees to use their mobile devices to easily access their organization’s resources through Wi-Fi networks or virtual private network (VPN) connections, without passwords.

WHO: HID Global, whose PKIaaS platform offers the advantages of a simple subscription model for automating digital certificate management across large numbers of mobile devices using Microsoft’s Intune service.

WHAT: The HID PKIaaS offering adds a rich suite of certificate automation capabilities to the Microsoft Intune mobile device onboarding and management process. 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).


WHY: 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.”

HOW: The HID PKIaaS service is integrated with Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and is listed on the Azure Marketplace.

Microsoft 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 (iOS/IPadOS and Android) as well as laptops (MacOS/Windows) to provide the easiest, most secure way to access Wi-Fi networks and VPNs.

HID’s cloud-based PKIaaS platform is unique in supporting both privately issued and trusted Transport Layer Security/ Secure Socket Layer (TLS/SSL) certificates, and also hosts private Intermediate Certificate Authorities (ICAs). It offers the industry’s broadest range of certificate automation features under a single annual subscription fee, including providing complete control, delegated administration, and on-demand auditing and reporting.
