10 PKI Use Cases for Stronger Enterprise Cybersecurity

For decades, public key infrastructure or PKI has been predominantly used to secure internet-facing websites and applications. But that is no longer the case anymore. Today, PKI is finding more applications than we can imagine.

As organizations accelerate digital transformation and increase the use of the cloud, containers, virtual machines, DevOps, and IoT, there is a pressing need for identity-based security that can secure assets regardless of their location. As identities form the very foundation of PKI, enterprises can take advantage of PKI to secure a wide variety of use cases in modern, cloud-driven environments.

Download the whitepaper to discover ten different security use cases where PKI can be applied:

  • Public facing websites and applications
  • Device authentication (Bring your own device, Mobile, IoT)
  • Cloud application access
  • DevOps
  • Microservices and containers
  • Passwordless shell access to machines (SSH)
  • Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) for VPN or private network access
  • Corporate WiFi Protected Access
  • Mutual authentication for secure web applications (MTLS)
  • Email security
