Snitch is a service that automatically monitors your SSL certificates. Snitch can alert, audit, and monitor SSL. Snitch created their service to make sure websites are secure while also keeping customers and business. The service is easy to use. To create a “snitch” users need to enter the website, give a brief description and set the frequency for checking.

Expiration Alerts
Forget about creating a calendar alert for your SSL certificate expiration. Snitch can send email alerts when your SSL certificate is about to expire. It will warn you at 90 days, 30 days, 15 days, and 7 days. After 7 days, you will receive daily alerts about the expiration of the certificate.

Snitch, alerts

Security Audits
Snitch audits your SSL certificates. It can determine that the certificate has not been revoked. Snitch keeps track of the digital fingerprint, so if anything changes the user is notified.

Snitch offers four different plans for their customers. They also have a 15-day free trial for users, which is a great incentive. Regardless of the plan, the standard email alert is included. So if you need SMS alerts, you will need to upgrade to a premium plan (Either the Professional or Enterprise). Those with a premium plan have the option for PagerDuty integration with Snitch. PagerDuty is a platform that manages and alerts IT professionals if there are any problems with your system.

  • Startup – $10/month and monitors 1 certificate
  • Standard – $30/month and monitors 5 certificates
  • Professional – $100/month and monitors 10 certificates
  • Enterprise – $200/month and monitors 25 certificates

If you are looking for a fairly inexpensive SSL certificate-monitoring tool, Snitch could be a good tool to utilize. Do you use a SSL certificate-monitoring tool? If so, what online service or software do you use?
