Cloud, user authentication, and IoT drive spike in PKI use

Organisations are using digital certificates at rates never seen before, but face many challenges to evolve their PKI to meet new needs. New applications including the IoT, evolving standards and mandates, and unclear internal ownership stand to hinder organisations’ efforts to deploy and manage their PKI. And with a big increase in issued and acquired certificates found in this year’s study, the importance of automated certificate management and strong best practice-based security including HSMs has never been higher.

The 2020 Global PKI and IoT Trends Study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, is based on a survey of 1934 individuals involved in PKI in 17 countries/regions.
