The GlobalSign 2021 PKI Survey

One thing's for sure – navigating digital certificate management and digital signatures in the connected enterprise is not easy.

During the unprecedented and paradigm-shifting Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, billions of workers were told to stay home and shelter in place, upending traffic patterns that had been in place for decades and revolutionizing office communications. Workers were forced to replace face-to-face meetings entirely and rely solely on digital interactions. And businesses had to quickly “adapt or die.” Now, we are living with the repercussions of this urgent rush to digitally transform, as cyber attacks and data breaches dominate global news headlines.

It’s no surprise, then, that the need for certificate automation and streamlined tracking is just one of the key takeaways from our most recent PKI Survey, conducted in the Spring of 2021 with Opinium*.

In this free report we’ll walk you through the results, many of which point to surprisingly out-of-date systems and processes that have yet to catch up with the fast pace of digital transformation we are experiencing today.

You’ll learn:

  • Top certificate management and PKI obstacles slowing down IT leaders and administrators
  • The biggest risks of getting PKI wrong
  • Why the technical definition of digital signature is so critical (and how many people still don’t understand it)
  • What this latest data means for your organization, with tangible takeaways that you can put into action right now

* Research was conducted by Opinium from 23 to 31 March 2021, amongst 157 US IT professionals and 153 UK IT professionals (all manager level or above who either make or help reach final decisions around IT-related purchases).
** Respondents answered a multiple-choice question (of up to three options), therefore, they chose multiple answers that added up to more than 100.
