BlueCerts High level of flexibility and scalability : You can scale your certificate quantities and types in a flexible manner at any time.

Lower costs: You spare yourself cost-intensive development and operational work associated with maintaining your own PKI. We have a price model with rapidly rising volume discounts.

Trustworthiness : All current browsers and operating systems trust our certificates.

Payment – flexible management and billing: Billing takes place once a year prior to the acquisition period based on the quantity of certificate licenses. Upon adding to your number of certificate licenses, the volume discount allows you to benefit from your existing certificate inventory.

You can always obtain certificates for the agreed order volume. It is not necessary to order those certificate types which were originally mentioned in the order as far as the sum of all your certificate licenses does not exceed the order volume. In case you will exceed the order volume we will contact you for an upgrade of your contract.

You are free to decrease your certificate order volume for the next yearly contract period.

A certificate revocation followed by the re-issuing of a new certificate constitutes the acquisition of a single certificate. This means that an exchange of a server or a new replacing employee can use the same certificate license. We calculate the certificate usage based on days. That means if you use your certificate only an half year we will count your certificate number as 0.5 for this certificate. Certificates can be issued for the signature, for encryption or for authentication.

Provided these are always for the same subject (person, e-mail address, computer, etc.), they only have to be paid for once in the case of Managed PKI.
