3CX in Cooperation with Certificate Authority Let’s Encrypt

Let's Encrypt featuredLONDON, UK – 28 JUNE 20163CX, developer of the next-generation software-based Unified Communications Solution, is pleased to announce its cooperation with the security certificate authority Let’s Encrypt.

3CX, working with Let’s Encrypt, is able to provide trusted security certificates for its customers. By managing this process, which can be time-consuming and costly, 3CX provides an inestimable service at no cost to its partners and end-users. Users get the certificates delivered automatically and immediately – it is no longer necessary to work with third-party certificate providers who can take days and even weeks to provide the certificates.

What’s more, the user is assured that the security certification is of the highest quality in the industry: Let’s Encrypt root certificates are cross-signed by IdenTrust, a company that already runs a long-standing and trusted CA. Let’s Encrypt is also sponsored by some of the best-known names in the software industry.

3CX has also become a sponsor of Let’s Encrypt, providing support for the continuing provision of trusted security certificates for data communications.

Nick Galea, 3CX CEO, said:
”Security has always been a top priority for 3CX, and HTTPS certificates automatically make 3CX deployments much more secure. The cooperation with Let’s Encrypt affirms our commitment to providing the highest possible grade of security.”

Josh Aas, Executive Director, Let’s Encrypt, said:
“3CX has shown strong support for a more secure and privacy-respecting Web by making HTTPS easily available for their customers and being an early sponsor of Let’s Encrypt.”

  2. Will you be implementing the DNS based auth for the setup as well? As port 80 is required and traditionally 3CX could be installed on 5000/5001 it would make the registration slightly difficult…

      It is already DNS based, so you have the freedom of using the port you prefer or can spare for 3CX.

  3. Does it still has the option to put in your own certificate from other 3rth-party authority?

    Yes, in case you would like to run 3CX on your own domain, during the installation you must provide your own cert.
