The up-front investment Verizon made to integrate with the DigiCert API allowed for long-term scaling of its application, and the reduction in overall support costs. Richard and his team shrunk certificate turnaround times from weeks to a matter of a few hours, giving customers the ability to start securely delivering content right away. Although certificate volume increased 7X in the last four years, Verizon has avoided spending resources on hiring new analysts, and has put that money into further developing their internal KMI, which will allow Richard and his team to continue automating their certificate management.
“During peak times, our CDN is responsible for delivering up to 10% of the world’s web traffic. The DigiCert API is the only thing that’s allowed us to scale to encrypt such high volumes of traffic. To put it simply, The DigiCert API is helping us secure the internet”

Since 2008, Plex has delivered a sophisticated media streaming solution that gives users a platform to easily organize and stream all of their videos, music, and photos.
In one of the largest implementations of publicly trusted certificates to date, Plex partnered with DigiCert to secure millions of devices. This partnership allows Plex to utilize the DigiCert IoT PKI platform, and enables Plex to automatically provision and deploy SSL/TLS encryption to Plex servers and Plex-enabled devices. The innovative and scalable DigiCert platform made this deployment possible by customizing the issuance process to meet the technical needs of the Plex streaming infrastructure.
