Comodo Client Certificates
Not all client SSL certificates are created equal – defend your organization with the best!
Passwords are no longer enough. They're easy to crack. People reuse them. Organizations can't count on passwords alone to keep attackers out. Two-factor Authentication is considered best practice, but implementing it can seem like a big challenge. Not with Comodo Client Certificates, also known as Personal Authentication Certificates. With Comodo CA, issuance can be automated and handled behind the scenes. And Comodo’s universally trusted roots ensure no extra configuration will be required. Whether it's your organization's equipment or devices your employees bring from home, Comodo Client Certificates make implementing two-factor authentication quick and painless.

Two-factor Authentication Doesn't Have to Be a Pain
Too often, two-factor authentication feels like more of an annoyance than a benefit to your employees. Enter a password and wait for a code. Or pay for expensive RNG devices for the entire organization. With SSL two-factor authentication, everything takes place seamlessly behind the scenes. Rather than simply being one-way, during the handshake the server authenticates the client, too. In the time it takes your employees to enter their password, device authentication will already have taken place using the client certificate installed on their device.
Have an employee leave the company? With Comodo CA's comprehensive PKI infrastructure, it's easy to revoke their client SSL certificate to maintain the integrity of your organizational perimeter.
Client Authentication Certificates That Do so Much More
Whereas other CAs get stingy with their client certificates, Comodo is as generous as they come. Key usage permissions are just a single line of code in the certificate, and unlike most CAs, Comodo CA sets client certificate usage permissions so you can:
- Authenticate clients/devices
- Sign email
- Encrypt email
- Sign documents
- Encrypt documents
Beyond simply authenticating a device, Comodo client SSL certificates a.k.a. Personal Authentication Certificates can help safeguard all communication to and from that device.
Signing and Encrypting Email
Whenever you want to send an important email from a device that's been secured with a Comodo client certificate, simply choose the option to sign, and even encrypt, from the drop down menu in the message draft window. Signed emails will show your verified signature.
The encrypted email will be readable by only the party with the corresponding key. Email encryption also helps with compliance requirements that call for encrypting data at rest.
Signing and Encrypting Documents
Email isn't the only thing that needs signing. Sometimes an important presentation or proposal needs to be signed, sealed and delivered in a secure fashion. Comodo Personal Authentication Certificate help assert the creator’s identity, verify the document's integrity and even protect it from the prying eyes of attackers and thieves. Encrypting documents also counts towards compliance requirements calling the encryption of data at rest. Note that if you need to sign PDF documents, we recommend our Adobe Approved document signing certificate.
