Why I’m Excited for Keyfactor and Primekey Coming Together

I couldn’t be more excited than to share that PrimeKey will be merging with Keyfactor under one company. Over the past 18 months, we’ve been building strong relationships with the PrimeKey leadership team that had lead us to this market-defining merger.  

Last year, Keyfactor announced a technology integration partnership with PKI hardware and software solutions provider PrimeKey. The integration combined Keyfactor’s Certificate Automation with PrimeKey’s EJBCA Enterprise product, offering Keyfactor and PrimeKey customers end-to-end visibility and automation to all private and publicly issued certificates via a single platform.  

Keyfactor and PrimeKey share a history rooted in cryptography and a relentless commitment to customer service and satisfaction. Through our growing partnership, we imagined a world where we could offer even more value to our customers through continued market growth, product expansion, and PKI expertise.   

Merging to Expand  

The combined teams will operate under the Keyfactor brand while building upon the strong foundation of each organization. 

Why should customers get excited about this? 

As I mentioned in the press release, enterprises must operate in a zero trust world, and machine identity management can no longer be ignored as part of their identity and access management (IAM) strategy.  

We’re merging to bring machine identity management mainstream for the enterprise. 

We remain committed to providing a best-in-class customer experience now and in the future. By combining the Keyfactor and PrimeKey product portfolios, we are bringing an industry-first machine identity management platform to market. The platform will offer expanded capabilities to scale and support your complex and ever-changing use cases.

The current product support and service you enjoy will not change. We will continue providing updates as merger details are finalized in the coming weeks. 

More to Come 

The merger with PrimeKey amplifies the performance of the combined businesses across product offerings, distribution channels, expertise for our customers, and large open source communities. 

In the meantime, our team is happy to answer any questions you have and invite you to read the official press announcement and a list of the top FAQs.

Together, we are poised to deliver, manage, and automate the cryptographic challenges of the future. Be on the lookout for more product news, webinars, and thought leadership from the NEW Keyfactor!
