(The Hosting News) – GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in Digital Certificate security, today announced the expansion of the GlobalSign brand further into the Spanish speaking market through the launch of http://www.globalsign.es. The fully localised web presence, backed-up by dedicated sales and support services in the native language will guarantee Spanish-speaking customers easy access to GlobalSign’s leading Digital Certificate solutions; making for a quick, effective and hassle-free experience.
With more than 1.7 million websites in Spain, only about 1% of those sites (12004) are SSL secured, meaning the risk of online fraud and identity theft are an everyday threat. GlobalSign, the first European Certification Authority, aims to educate customers about online threats, best security practices and appropriate solutions to help organisations mitigate the risks of using the Internet.
GlobalSign’s range of SSL Certificates help website owners ensure that any data transmitted over the Internet remains secure from prying eyes. The move into the Spanish market comes at a time when the Spanish SSL market is booming. As organisations recognise the need to protect themselves and their customers, secure sites have increased by almost 10% since the beginning of 2011. GlobalSign will help respond to increasing demand in SSL with a feature-packed offering and a simplified user experience through sales and customer service in the local language.
GlobalSign will be offering its full range of SSL Certificates directly to help meet a wide range of customer security requirements at cost-effective levels. The GlobalSign SSL products include fast issuance DomainSSL, Organisation Validated SSL and the most advanced and visible Extended Validated (EV) SSL Certificates. All GlobalSign Certificates use the strongest security levels available, with all browsers of all ages benefiting from the same strong encryption. GlobalSign SSL also works with every imaginable device that could connect to the customer’s website. All SSL Certificates also provide a free malware monitoring service, which scans the website for compromise and alerts website owners of the presence of malicious code, allowing then to tackle two major security concerns with a single product.
“GlobalSign is already familiar with the Spanish SSL market through our channel customers, and the new direct presence is an exciting development to further strengthen the GlobalSign brand in Spain and throughout Europe,” said Paul Tourret, managing director, GMO GlobalSign Ltd. “GlobalSign products provide the ideal answer for customers looking to secure their websites, online identities, and electronic documents. We look forward to helping enterprises meet data security and privacy compliance effectively.”
GlobalSign’s other Digital Certificate solutions will also be available from the new website, including SSL Managed Service for enterprises with multiple SSL Certificate requirements, Code Signing Certificates, Client Certificates for secure email and Microsoft Office document security, as well as Adobe PDF signing. GlobalSign’s expansion will provide the Spanish market with an exclusive “one-stop shop” for all PKI requirements.
