State of Machine Identity Management 2022


Welcome to the second annual State of Machine Identity Management report, an in-depth look at the role of public key infrastructure (PKI), keys, and digital certificates in securing IT organizations across EMEA and North America.

As your digital footprint expands, how do you establish trust?

Findings from this year’s report make one thing clear: PKI and machine identities are essential building blocks to digital trust as organizations accelerate their path to multi-cloud, zero-trust, and DevOps strategies. 


Use of PKI and machine IDs is quickly expanding.

IT organizations increasingly rely on PKI, crytographic keys, and digital certificates to securely connect users, machines, and applications across their IT environment. 



There’s just one problem, machine ID sprawl.

At the same time, however, companies are still struggling to manage their growing PKI and machine identity landscape, and the challenges are getting more complex.
