``We needed the ability to use X.509 Certificate based SSL Client Authentication to provide an additional security layer for our cloud-based applications and Codegic not only quickly provisioned the certificates we needed, but also provided very responsive support when we had questions. Rolling out any PKI project can be hard work, but having a partner like Codegic has made it fast and easy.``
