PKI Solutions announced the introduction of PKI Spotlight, an industry-leading solution that provides real-time monitoring and alerting of the availability, configuration, and security of all organizations’ PKI environments, all consolidated into a dashboard. easy to use edge. PKI is a fundamental technology for almost all identity and data encryption solutions used in the world.
Protecting data has never been more challenging with pervasive and ever-changing cyber threats, remote workforces and employee turnover, and apps and devices requiring constant updates. Now more than ever, enterprises need a holistic, centralized view of all their security components and real-time security intelligence to protect their business-critical data now and in the future. According to Gartner, “In many organizations today, ongoing operations and rapid response to (cybersecurity) incidents are hampered by the proliferation of siled dashboards.” By 2024, organizations adopting a cybersecurity mesh architecture to integrate security tools to operate as a cooperative ecosystem will reduce the financial impact of individual security incidents by an average of 90%.
“We are excited to introduce a revolutionary new PKI solution that solves the toughest PKI management challenges not solved by any current product and process on the market today. What PKI Spotlight offers is revolutionary because it acts as the first and only solution to consolidate vital information about an organization’s PKI environment into a single view, at your fingertips.This has been challenging due to the unique distributed nature of PKI, the adoption of components locked hardware such as hardware security modules (HSMs), expanding cloud environments, and the fact that organizations may not always have dedicated resources to manage all of their PKI environments,” said Mark B. Cooper, president and founder of PKI Solutions.
