(The Hosting News) – GlobalSign announced today that it is expanding the GlobalSign brand further into the Dutch market through the launch of a fully localised web presence together with dedicated sales and support services in the local language. This new development will allow enterprises and channel partners in the Netherlands to source SSL Certificates and other security products from the GlobalSign range online, quickly, effectively and hassle-free.
The Netherlands has seen a significant increase in Internet usage in the past few years, and as products and services are brought online, the risk of phishing attacks and other security threats is at an all-time high, driving the requirement for strong security to protect all data exchanged over the Internet (such as client logins and credit card information). The number of websites secured with SSL has increased by over 55% in the past year in the Netherlands, making the country the third largest SSL market in Europe (www.netcraft.com). GlobalSign’s move into the Netherlands is timed to capitalise on this opportunity, as well as the growing local demand for a trusted and reliable alternative to other SSL providers.
SSL Certificates are available directly from the GlobalSign website through a localised Dutch ordering system, and sales and technical support in the local language will also be provided for enterprise and channel customers alike. GlobalSign’s Preferred Partner in the Netherlands, Networking4all (www.networking4all.nl), continues to provide GlobalSign’s SSL Certificates, adding to the local representation and continuing to bring their own significant market expertise to the distribution of GlobalSign solutions, making it easier than ever for customers to secure their websites with Certificates from the well-established GlobalSign brand.
“The expansion into the Dutch market is an exciting development for GlobalSign,” said Paul Tourret, Managing Director at GlobalSign. “We are delighted to be able to make our range of services available to our Dutch customer base, backed-up by a new web presence and dedicated native sales and support services, ensuring a simplified customer experience especially as customers using other Certification Authorities face confusing times due to acquisitions and brand changes, leaving the stable GlobalSign brand as the strongest alternative solution.”
GlobalSign’s comprehensive range of SSL Certificates will be available to purchase from the new dedicated website to suit the needs of organisations of all sizes and all industries, including fast issuance Domain Validation, traditional Organization Validation and the most advanced Extended Validated (EV) SSL Certificates, which activate the green address bar in new browsers such as IE7+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari. GlobalSign SSL Certificates provide the ideal answer for customers looking to secure their website, logins, webmail, and other next generation services effectively and all certificates are issued from its future-proof 2048 bit root certificate, hence providing the highest level of security. Feature-packed, all GlobalSign SSL Certificates are inclusive of free Server Gated Cryptography, 3 for 1 licensing promotion and universal compatibility with all browsers and mobile devices.
Establishing itself as a one-stop shop for all PKI requirements, GlobalSign provides a range of security solutions to help companies meet data security and privacy compliance effectively. This includes Digital IDs for secure email, authentication and document signing, as well as ensuring a secure exchange of digitally signed PDF documents through its partnership with Adobe. These Digital IDs, as well as GlobalSign’s Enterprise products for multiple certificate requirements (ManagedSSL and ePKI) are all available to purchase from the GlobalSign website, alongside the GlobalSign SSL products.
