CMS Sapphire for PKI as a Service

Increase security and efficiency with the power of a Managed Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

CMS Sapphire allows you to keep the controls of your applications and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) in-house, but transfer the day-to-day management responsibilities to CSS. Offering high security and scalability, with increased efficiency, CMS Sapphire protects assets, minimizes risk, and reduces operational expense.

Your Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), Our Management and Service

Built to satisfy the needs of your business, CMS Sapphire is PKI on your terms. Designed, deployed, and managed by CSS on your behalf and to meet your needs, CMS Sapphire is architected to allow you to maintain complete control over the use of your Root CA keys and PKI recovery materials. CMS Sapphire allows organizations to reap the benefits of a dedicated and highly-customizable PKI, with the flexibility and scalability of cloud delivery, and rapid deployment models that reduce typical rollout timelines by more than 50%.

CMS Sapphire saves clients significant costs while meeting or exceeding their daily IT service and business requirements, reducing staffing expenses by up to 80%. CSS integrates with your team, delivering reliable results and meeting agreed upon Service Level Agreements (SLAs). CSS PKI experts ensure that your infrastructure stays compliant, assets are protected, and drive down your risk of downtime (and the accompanying productivity loss) by monitoring and maintaining your environment.
