Purchasing individual certificates was out of the question, since their solution required very high certificate volume, and they were reluctant to roll out their own PKI, as reliability and high assurance were key requirements to meet their growing customer base. The customer engaged CSS after realizing that operating a full scale PKI was simply out of their wheelhouse.
