What is SSL management?

Supervising the SSL certificates used on a network for their whole lifecycle is known as SSL management. Digital credentials, known as TLS certificates, are used to encrypt user-site communication and authenticate websites. Also, it has some other facilities, like monitoring, tracking, and managing renewals.
