PLEX CASE STUDY Plex Partners with DigiCert in Largest IoT Certificate Implementation Since 2008, Plex has delivered a sophisticated media streaming solution that gives users a platform to easily organize and stream all of their videos, music, and photos. The increasing intelligence of Internet hackers and Plex's own commitment to security led Plex to team up with DigiCert in order to provide customers top-level security assurance. The Challenge By 2020, an estimated 25 billion devices will be connected to the Internet of Things. Plex is at the forefront of IoT and already has millions of devices, with thousands of devices being added everyday. Data and device security is a critical priority as the number of IoT-supported devices expands. Plex knows that encryption and security for every server and client device is essential for their user's privacy and online trust. Plex's streaming server solution requires complete trust across a large number of media devices and platforms, each with their own set of trust standards and unique nuances in establishing secured connections and securing communications. The Solution In one of the largest implementations of publicly trusted certificates to date, Plex partnered with DigiCert to secure millions of devices. This partnership allows Plex to utilize the DigiCert IoT PKI platform, and enables Plex to automatically provision and deploy SSL/TLS encryption to Plex servers and Plex-enabled devices. The innovative and scalable DigiCert platform made this deployment possible by customizing the issuance process to meet the technical needs of the Plex streaming infrastructure. The ubiquity of DigiCert root certificates allowed Plex to efficiently secure devices, whether they were from Apple, Samsung, PlayStation, or from other manufacturers. Not only are DigiCert certificates recognized by web browsers, but they are also recognized by TVs, video game consoles, and other devices. © 2016 DigiCert, Inc. All rights reserved.
