Flash-Based Rapid Integration Tool from Thawte Updated

Thawte-in-a-Box Specifically Focuses on the Enrollment Processes

"thawte in-a-box was developed in Flash to address the need for a light-weight, rapid integration mechanism which specifically focuses on the enrollment processes enabling end customers to purchase and renew our products," said Ilse Baxter, Director of Business Strategy, Sales and Marketing at thawte, Inc., as the company announced an important functional update to its flagship Flash-based rapid integration tool designed to allow a thawte Partner to resell digital certificates directly from the Partner's site.

"The latest functional enhancements now allow a Partner to configure thawte in-a-box to display for purchase any combination of products that are suitable to their customer base and launches thawte’s unique platform independent Code Signing Certificates for sale through this tool,” Baxter continued.

Based in Cape Town, South Africa, thawte is one of the world's most established Certification Authorities - that's to say, a company that facilitates message encryption by managing security credentials and public keys worldwide.

Trusted since 1995, thawte has issued over 595,000 SSL and Code Signing Certificates and over 1,025,409 Personal E-mail Certificates since inception.

The company, which celebrates 10 years of trusted status later this year, supports 28 different languages and its customer base covers 172 different countries across the globe.

thawte in-a-box allows thawte’s Partners and Resellers to:

  • deploy the sale of digital certificates on their site quickly and cost effectively using Flash technology that is browser and platform independent.
  • make use of thawte’s API to conduct business on any website configured by the Partners and Resellers for this purpose.
  • extend this capability to their sub-referrers - Sub-referrers can, in turn, easily sell thawte products on behalf of the Partners and Resellers, who can monitor their activity through their account console. There is no limit to the number of sub-referrers a Reseller can have.
  • seamlessly benefit from all new products or enhancements launched by thawte without impact to the Reseller due to the underpinning Application Service Provider model it employs. The application is hosted by thawte and not the Partner or Reseller.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
