Public key infrastructure technology has been developed for exchanging information over an increasingly insecure Internet. Public key infrastructure technology delivers several benefits such as assurance of the quality of data sent and received electronically, assurance of the source and destination of that data, and assurance of the privacy of that data. Public key infrastructure can be used to provide cryptographic keys between users securely, and to enable other cryptographically delivered security services. Public Key Infrastructure also uses for supporting digital signatures and document encryption for a business. The PKI technology has become essential for effective, secure business and to achieve security and authentication requirements over non-secure networks such as the Internet.
Public key infrastructure handles authentication issues in small & medium enterprise and large enterprise. Large organizations adopt a PKI solution for ensuring continuous compliance. Also, to achieve secure communication, large organizations are adopting the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate that uses public key infrastructure for authentication and encryption. Further, companies in various regions are inclined towards providing public key infrastructure solution to large enterprises. For instance, GlobalSign Ltd. provides a highly scalable cloud-based public key infrastructure solution to offer digital identities that meet the demands of the Internet of Everything (IoE). Company’s security and identity solutions allow large enterprises, cloud service providers, and Internet of Things (IoT) innovators to ensure security and privacy. The solution also protects its reputation and brand integrity and gain a competitive advantage. Hence, the offering of PKI solutions by potential companies drives the global public key infrastructure market.
