SafeSign Management Server


SafeSign Management Server

One proven platform for efficient full-lifecycle management of digital identities

SafeSign Management Server is an identity management system that enables organizations to efficiently issue and manage a large variety of identity credential technologies from a single platform. Using this browser-based application, administrators can define user roles and access rights in accordance with policies, issue credentials, and perform a wide range of tasks in less time, thereby reducing the administrative burden while eliminating unnecessary barriers to access. SafeSign Management Server integrates with PKI infrastructure, supports multiple issuing models (individual, batch, self-service, etc.) and can integrate with your existing user directories to facilitate registration. Designed to support full lifecycle management of digital credentials, the SafeSign Management Server supports customized workflows and enables organizations to centralize identity management, enforce policy effectively, and streamline auditing—while minimizing the time and cost of routine administration.
