Keyfactor’s roots date back to 2001. What began as a PKI consulting service has evolved into a comprehensive machine identity management platform. Over the years, our focus on empowering customers to protect and manage every machine identity hasn’t wavered. Along the way, we’ve brought together best-in-class companies, people, and technology.

Most recently, Keyfactor merged with PrimeKey, a pioneer in open-source public key infrastructure (PKI) and signing solutions. Bringing together the most widely used PKI and certificate authority (CA) software with end-to-end machine identity management empowers our customers to securely connect and authenticate every device, workload, and application across their business.
