Certificate Lifecycle Automation

A practical guide to choosing your first (or next) solution.

This guide provides what feature sets to look for and questions to ask vendors when evaluating certificate management and automation solutions.


"On average, a typical organization uses 88,750 keys and certificates today to secure data and authenticate systems."*

Organizations today face serious challenges when it comes to securing digital identities. Rapid growth in the use of cryptographic keys and digital certificates, shorter lifecycles, and complex multi-vendor environments make it exponentially harder to manage them effectively.

Most enterprises don’t even know how many keys and certificates they have, much less where they live or when they expire. Existing spreadsheet-based methods and basic tools continue to leave them exposed to costly outages and security risks.

Finding the right solution that’s easy to deploy, easy to manage, and can cost effectively protect your growing certificate count is critical. But not all certificate management platforms can meet your needs.
