Generate certificates to encrypt your data in transit

Crooks are everywhere - even on the inside of your corporate network. That is why we strongly recommend that you encrypt all traffic to, from, and within Next® using SSL and TLS 1.2 or later.  

Next® already has all the features to hold and use certificates. With this release, we add the ability to generate trusted certificates on your behalf.

The certificates are issued by a CA (certificate authority) that is unique to your instance of Next®.

.

With such easy access to certificates, you have no excuse for running an insecure Next® Digital Workplace 




For now, Next® can generate certificates for SSL encryption, but others will follow.     


Future enhancements

In a soon to come release of Next®, the recommendation to use SSL/TLS1.2+ will become a requirement.
