Renewing secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates can be a pain point for website owners, but two new features from Symantec are designed to fully automate the process.
Customers who have deployed VeriSign SSL Certificates can automatically renew for up to six years with the new Express Renewal and AutoPay features. Express Renewal eliminates the need to submit a certificate signing request (CSR) or re-install a VeriSign SSL Certificate when it approaches renewal time.
When a certificate is up for renewal, the SSL customer can now pay for a new validity period. Customers can also activate the AutoPay renewal service upon initial enrollment. By automating payment for renewal, AutoPay service helps ensure that SSL protection continues without interruption.
Express Renewal is available at no charge to VeriSign SSL and EV SSL customers who submit a minimum 2048-bit CSR. Customers can activate and deactivate AutoPay at any time, for any reason and without penalty, for as long as they hold their VeriSign SSL or EV SSL Certificate.
