Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) & Digital Certificate Management for the Enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT)

Digital Identity & Trust: The Foundation of Security

Organizations require enhanced security for data, and strong credentials for authentication. These requirements include properly identifying data communication participants, encrypting data for controlled access, and digitally signing code to ensure process authenticity. Establishing a foundation of trust and unique identity is the first step in these functions. The need for identity and trust applies equally to internal data and communication, as it does to external, cloud, and IoT infrastructures. 

Digital certificates secure data and facilitate the authentication of users, mobile devices, computers, servers, networking devices, and now IoT devices. Explosive growth in the deployment and adoption of new business applications, and the introduction of both personal and IoT devices to corporate networks, has brought additional focus on the need for identity and security. They have also introduced new challenges of scale and complexity. Next generation solutions are required in order to meet these modern business needs, and to ensure future challenges and threats are effectively addressed.

The "New PKI"

The need for robust automation across Enterprise IT and the emerging IoT has never been greater. ​Digital certificates, originally used within data centers and web farms to secure the periphery, were expanded in role to secure the internal network along with the rapidly growing fleet of network connected personal devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) is now in full motion, and PKI is playing a critical role in securing millions of devices, and securely integrating OT and IT across a wide range of industries.
