From real estate and education to insurance providers and oil/gas companies, there are conversations in IT boardrooms about the relative risks and rewards of migrating to a virtualized infrastructure, where the prospect of lower costs and increased efficiency clash with the perceived heightened vulnerability of cloud platforms

Back in 1994, Entrust debuted the world's first commercially available public key infrastructure. In the more than 20 years since then, it's been refining and building on the technology. Over the past two decades, enterprise security needs have skyrocketed alongside the growth of connected technology. According to one report from last year, 94 percent of the organizations surveyed reported experiencing cybersecurity issues. These days, a single targeted attack can end up costing an enterprise millions of dollars - and it's not only big corporations and financial institutions that are targeted: From medicine and government entities to small and medium-sized companies, everyone is a target. Across the board, susceptibility to cybercrime has never been higher.
