GlobalSign Develops Free Tool to Simplify Code Signing Process

May 17, 2011 by · Comments Off on GlobalSign Develops Free Tool to Simplify Code Signing Process 

Webmaster ToolboxBoston, MA – GlobalSign, a specialist in issuing Code Signing Digital Certificates used to authenticate the publisher of software and produce tamper-evident virtual “shrink-wrapped” software, has today announced the launch of a free comprehensive Code Signing Tool. The tool expedites the process of digitally signing a wide group of application types from Microsoft, Adobe, Sun, Mozilla and Apple among others.

GlobalSign Code Signing certificates allow software developers to digitally sign and timestamp the software they distribute over the internet, which is the virtual equivalent to shrink-wrapping CD based software for distribution. Users who download digitally signed software and applications can be sure of the origin of the code and that it has not been altered in any way since the time-stamp was applied. By utilizing Code Signing certificates the “Unknown Publisher” popup in Operating Systems and browsers is removed. Digitally signing your code enhances the brand and reputation of software developers while also protecting their users from malware and spyware. Read more

Hosting ToolboxBoston, MA – GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA), and specialists in SSL security, today announced that it has shown the largest actual increase in the number of SSL Certificates active for the month of February. Enjoying a monthly growth of almost 2000 new secure sites, GlobalSign’s highly trusted SSL technology is being adopted at a faster rate than the other leading SSL Providers Symantec (comprising of its four SSL brands – VeriSign, GeoTrust, thawte and RapidSSL), as well as GoDaddy and Comodo, who all showed a decrease in number of secured sites for the same period.

Between 2008 and 2009 the number of sites secured by GlobalSign more than doubled and subsequent years have seen strong growth rates of 64% and 59% respectively – higher than other major players. These statistics clearly indicate that rising numbers of website owners are realizing the importance of using SSL technology, and that more existing certificate users are deciding to switch from their current vendor to take advantage of GlobalSign’s trusted brand, future-proof SSL security and advanced security features.
