Part II: Software
Do you have devices that are not Microsoft platforms? For example: mobile, Linux or Mac devices
If yes, do you have a solution to manage them?
How many employees in your organization are currently dedicated to PKI?
Do you plan on providing PKI training to existing staff?
Part III: Personnel
Part IV: Infrastructure
Do you currently have several high-availability HSMs?
