A single security problem undermines trust in organizations across all industries today – mismanaged cryptographic keys and digital certificates.

Keyfactor and the Ponemon Institute surveyed 603 IT and security professionals across 14 industries to understand the current state of PKI and digital certificate management practices.

What we found will change the way you think about your security strategy. The study reveals widespread gaps and challenges, including:

  • 73% of security professionals admit digital certificates still cause unplanned downtime and application outages
  • 71% of security professionals state that migration to the cloud demands significant changes to their PKI practices
  • 76% of security professionals say failure to secure keys and certificates undermines the trust their organization relies upon to operate.

This year’s report also introduces the Critical Trust Index™ – a range of metrics that measures enterprises’ ability to manage the rapid growth of cryptographic keys and digital certificates required to secure critical data and connections across their business.
