DigiCert to Deliver Enhanced Security for Plex Customers

Press Release

June 8, 2015

Lehi—DigiCert, a leading global Certificate Authority and provider of trusted identity and authentication services, has partnered with Plex, the leading personal media streaming solution, to provide publicly trusted certificates to enhance security for all Plex media streaming and cloud services. DigiCert's SSL/TLS Internet of Things (IoT) solution will allow Plex to provide end-to-end security for tens of millions of Plex media servers and clients.

"With the rapid expansion of supported devices and significant user growth, security is a top priority for Plex," said Plex Chief Product Officer Scott Olechowski. "Times have changed. To adapt, we are rolling out DigiCert encryption and security to every server and client. This will counteract possible attacks, hacks, or snooping and provide all of our users with the trusted ‘green lock’ for each of their devices and platforms.”

The security provided by DigiCert to Plex and their customers will be one of the largest implementations of publicly trusted certificates to date. DigiCert and Plex will be utilizing existing PKI technologies and SSL/TLS encryption to create a scalable, secure solution to protect the communications between Plex-enabled devices.

“By partnering with DigiCert, Plex is providing customers with additional peace of mind with layers of security that go beyond today’s industry norm,” said DigiCert CSO Jason Sabin. “Each Plex Media Server will now get its own unique, high-assurance SSL Certificate, enabling the client to securely browse and play back content using the strongest encryption available. Users simply sign in and safely connect to their media no matter where they are.”

Plex selected DigiCert based on its proven ability to deliver custom, innovative and scalable solutions for securing IoT devices and to integrate with existing management platforms. The complex nature of the deployment requires a unique digital certificate and private key for each individual streaming media server. Plex will benefit from DigiCert's large-scale IoT certificate deployment and provisioning platform.
