Identity management leader recognized for its leading PKI expertise and novel approach to certificate management for the second consecutive year
CLEVELAND, Ohio – April 24, 2022 — Keyfactor, the identity-first security solution for modern enterprises, today announced it has won a Global InfoSec Award in the PKIaaS category from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. This is Keyfactor’s second-consecutive year winning a Global InfoSec Award, with last year’s award win in the Identity & Access Management category.
As the number of devices organizations rely on to operationalize their business continues to grow rapidly, so does the number of digital certificates. According to the 2023 State of Machine Identity Report, the average number of internally trusted certificates within an organization increased, to an average of 256,000, compared to 231,063 in 2021. Keyfactor provides a new approach to certificate management – one that combines leading PKI expertise with the tools needed to discover, control, and automate keys and certificates at scale. Keyfactor Command 10, Keyfactor’s latest platform update, empowers enterprises to consolidate historically siloed technologies for issuing and managing certificates, providing complete real-time, end-to-end visibility for all certificates within the organization. The platform also enables businesses to more easily renew, revocate, and enroll thousands of certificates with zero-touch automation.
“Now more than ever, executive leadership recognizes machine identity management as a critical business function. Our 2023 State of Machine Identity Report found 22% of IT professionals reported executive-level support for machine identity management, down from 36% in 2021,” said Jordan Rackie, Chief Executive Officer, Keyfactor. “We are honored to receive the PKIaaS cybersecurity Global InfoSec Award from Cyber Defense Magazine as more organizations prioritize PKI management.”
While the risks of inadequate PKI management will only increase with the proliferation of digital certificates, Keyfactor enables organizations across all industries to secure every digital key and certificate for multi-cloud enterprises, DevOps, and embedded IoT security.
“Keyfactor embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cyber-crime. Keyfactor is absolutely worthy of this coveted award and consideration for deployment in your environment,” said Yan Ross, Editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.
