We use AWS Certificate Manager across the whole organization to create and manage all the certificates needed to secure connections to other AWS services such as ALB, API Gateway, and CloudFront. The main business problem it solves is the high integration and easy of use within AWS, even to import external keys and certificates and manage them from there.
  • Ease of use
  • Great integration with other AWS services
  • Public certificates are free
  • It would be great if it integrated with other domain name services from domain validation
  • EC2 and other compute services integration with custom domain
I would always recommend AWS Certificate Manager for anyone using AWS cloud services. The perfect scenario would be with your domain managed by AWS Route 53 as you can obtain auto renewal of certificates with really good security for all your public facing application that uses CloudFront, ALB or API Gateway.

We are using it at the department level, and mainly we use it to manage SSL certificates for our websites. We found it very useful, especially when we need to renew certificates, because the functionality is really straightforward. The interface is clear and not excessively complex, so we didn't find any problems using it.
  • Easy to use interface
  • Really straight forward functionality
  • Simple and effective
  • Sometimes ACM certificates don't work with ELB.
  • No automatic alert on certificate expiration.
AWS Certificate Manager is far better than the old IAM certificate manager. It's simple to use, effective and it actually does what it says it will do. Of course, it could be better, but it's perfect for the job as is right now. The private CA is a nice addition, that in some scenarios would be useful.
As we stated, it's a simple service, with a very clear interface and it simply works. On our daily work, we don't have any problem using AWS Cerfiticate Manager. We don't give it a 10, because it would be better if it adds automatic notifications on certificate expiration or more features in the future.

We use AWS Certificate Manager in our team to set up secure https website to our product pages. Using Certificate Manager we get the SSL certificates and manage them in a better and simpler manner. We have not tried any other approach to get an SSL certificate.
  • AWS has everything that we need to set up an enterprise application and website.
  • The domain name validation has two types, email based and DNS approach.
  • The certificate can be used in AWS ELB and archive the secure HTTPS website.
  • Setup is really simple, hardly involves 3-4 steps.
  • Domain name validation is time consuming, and requires manual effort.
  • Domain name validation could be avoided if the domain provider is AWS, they can validate it internally.
AWS Certificate Manager works with any domain, even non-AWS provided domains. It is an easy and fast way of setting up your secure application website. If you follow the steps properly, like the validation steps wherein you have to add a rout53 entry manually in order to get your domain validated, it will not take much time to get your certificate.
They do a great job.

We are using AWS Certificate Manager for the last few years. For our AWS instances as well as for our public-facing websites. Before AWS Certificate Manager, we used some other services, but those services were not reliable & easy to implement. For our public-facing websites, we are using combination or AWS Certificate Manager & Elastic Bean Stack & implementation from purchase to setting up with Elastic Bean Stack was so easy.
  • From purchase to adding AWS Certificate Manager to AWS services is very easy.
  • AWS Certificate Manager can automate renewal and deployment of these certificates.
  • The process to attach AWS Certificate Manager with Elastic Bean Stack is a little complicated.
  • Little completed for new developers.
We implement AWS Certificate Manager with Elastic Bean Stack ( EBS ) was very easy & within a few clicks, we were done. If you use the third patch certificate with EBS, it's a little complicated.
It's easy to manage, easy to purchase, quick to install.
