The last decade has seen an exponential rise in connectivity, which has led to new challenges for those tasked with securing data. At the same time, competitive pressures mean that companies are keen to explore new digital initiatives, in which an emphasis on security is seen by some as a brake on progress.
However, this concern is misplaced. Good security equates to trusted systems, which in turn leads to greater confidence in expanding the sort of collaboration that digital entails.
Increasingly, organizations are looking toward PKI technology to establish trusted communications between devices, data, and applications that is essential to protect from an evolving threat landscape. But how do you choose between the available deployment models? Do you manage your own on-premises PKI? Use a hosted PKI operated by a managed service provider? Or are the PKI tools that come bundled free you your operating system be sufficient?
Computing Research conducted an exclusive survey of more than 100 senior IT managers and questioned them at length about their use of PKI and their concerns about cost, security and accessibility. This research paper looks at their findings.
