Be compliant with global standards

Zero Trust has graduated from being a buzzword to the most widely endorsed security strategy recommended by global standards and regulations.

Today, industry and regulatory standards prioritize Zero Trust adoption. Compliance with these benchmarks inherently entails implementing Zero Trust principles.





Standards and Regulations that recommend Zero Trust


  • NIS2 Directive

  • Cybersecurity Strategy EU

  • Cybersecurity Act (CRA)

  • GDPR

  • eIDAS Regulation

  • NIST

  • ISO/IEC 27001



  • PSD2

Do not forget corporate devices!

With Smart ID, you can automate enterprise certificate provisioning for both domain endpoints, such as machines and servers, and non-domain endpoints, such as dev ops servers, mobile devices, and networking devices.

As opposed to proprietary solutions, Nexus embraces open standards such as SCEP, EST, and ACME to support edge devices.

Smart ID MDM PKI service allows organizations to provision certificates from a trusted, third-party Certificate Authority (CA) to manage corporate mobile devices.
