Certificate Store and Frequent Changes
I think that it behooves an organization to have an internal certificate store. With this method you have more options. Level of encoding, visibility over certs, etc. This also will provide a more efficient and expedient method of changing certs. By changing the cert more frequently you are decreasing your risk substantially. This process is much easier when you are the one who governs it, instead of a third party.

It's time to wake up
Up till now the industry has enjoyed plain content storage in backend networks banking on remoteness for security.  Heartbleed, Shellshock, Stuxnet and the like are telling the industry to rethink this strategy, perhaps consider backend hardware hardening as done for front end systems like PCI standards for payment terminals.  I think condifence can be regained with secure rooting of digital certificates i.e. strong protections to underlying private keys.
