Get the Most out of Investments with PKI Assessments

PKI Solutions President and Founder Mark B. Cooper created the concept of PKI assessments in 2005 while at Microsoft and has been continually refining the process ever since. Our unique expertise in PKI enables us to provide deep insight into the design, health, and configuration of your PKI.

Groundbreaking Tools
PKI Solutions’ trusted assessment process and tools automate data collection and CTA discovery providing the most consistent and systematic way to analyze the configuration and health of ADCS PKIs available.

Custom PKI Analysis
Our thorough review of your PKI is both custom and pragmatic, adapting a strategy that combines both your business’ unique needs and industry best practices. Assessment areas include physical security controls, monitoring, patching, OCSP, NDES, Documentation, Key Recovery and Hardware Security Modules (HSMs). Decades of expertise enable PKI Solutions to piece together the bigger picture and determine areas of concern that automated tools alone are incapable of performing.

  • Comprehensive and fast: PKI Solutions enables automated data collection and CA discovery.
  • Continual Improvement with PKI Spotlight: PKI Spotlight offers ongoing PKI insight, remediation, and trends.
  • Increase Audit Compliance: Ensure your PKI is configured, managed, and run per compliance and audit requirements.
  • Historical Trends and Reports: Easily access scorecards, checklists, and historical records via a web-based portal at any time.
  • PKI Consulting Tailored to Your Business Outcomes

    Securing PKI starts with the people that know PKI. When you partner with PKI Solutions, you work with the guidance of established experts that have defined PKI for decades and who offer both a bespoke and pragmatic approach to PKI that balances security with organizational needs. 

    Design and Implementation

    A well-designed and built PKI is critical to its long-term viability and integrity. PKI Solutions ensures your environment will not only meet your needs today but is ready for whatever comes up down the road. 

  • We work with you to:

    • Define an environment that mitigates unacceptable security risks
    • Implement two-person integrity and non-repudiation controls
    • Identify the security risk and complexities of your PKI
    • Determine the need for mitigating solutions such as hardware security modules (HSMs)
    • Pull together critical PKI server and network components
    • Map operational responsibilities, controls, and documentation
  • Policies and Procedures

    Certificate Policies (CP) or Certificate Practice Statements (CPS) are typically requirements for public-facing organizations and those hoping to connect PKI and identities to others. PKI Solutions helps you understand CPs and CPS, who needs them, and why to create and maintain them. Determine policy needs, internal and external requirements and how your CP/ CPS will influence your PKI design so you can be ready for what’s ahead.

PKI FreshStart for Small and Midsized Businesses

Improperly implemented and documented PKI is a critical issue for any size business, but too often the resources to improve PKI posture are out of reach for small and midsized businesses.

  • Migrate from legacy PKI: When it’s best to start over, we can help decommission Legacy PKI systems as necessary.

Custom PKI Solutions Success Stories

  • For years we have been working to strengthen our public key infrastructure. It is a complicated and difficult technology that we struggled to implement and successfully maintain. Over the past three months we worked with Jake Grandlienard at PKI Solutions to review our existing setup and completely overhaul it. The end result of the project has become a solid PKI that we can now effectively use. I am cautious in my recommendations of technology and vendors but the team at PKI Solutions really knows their stuff. They are truly impressive. So, if you are struggling to understand or manage your PKI, I would recommend speaking with them.
