(The Hosting News) – GlobalSign NV has announced that TBS Internet has joined its SSL Partner Program and will be promoting its range of Organisation Validated and Extended Validation SSL Certificates. The newly formed partnership will allow TBS Internet’s customers to easily obtain and implement GlobalSign’s highly trusted 2048 bit SSL technology to secure their websites, online transactions, logins, webmail and other next generation services.
A leader in electronic transaction security in the French market, TBS Internet has added GlobalSign SSL certificates to its product range, including OrganizationSSL Certificates which display the organisation’s details telling visitors that it is legitimate, as well as the latest Extended Validation (EV) technology. EV SSL Certificates not only display the yellow padlock, but also turn the browser’s green address bar in IE7 and 8, Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari, rendering SSL security more visible to end users than ever before.
As an SSL Certificate aggregator since 1996, TBS Internet offers SSL solutions from several other Certificate Authorities. Partnering with GlobalSign has enabled TBS Internet to complement its current SSL product portfolio by adding a simplified, highly competitive and feature-packed range of SSL Certificates. GlobalSign SSL Certificates include free Server Gated Cryptography (to “step up” weak browser encryption to strong encryption on older browsers) and support wildcard technology and Subject Alternative Names (SANs for Unified Communications), to allow the securing of multiple sites with a single certificate, providing extra flexibility and simplified SSL management all round.
“TBS Internet has always placed its clients’ needs at the heart of its strategy. Integrating GlobalSign’s OV and EV Certificates into our portfolio gives them more choices and competitively priced services”, said Jean-Philippe Donnio, CEO at TBS Internet. “GlobalSign’s SSL Certificates include 3 server licenses at no additional cost and benefit from excellent browser and mobile device compatibility. In a booming French market, our partnership with GlobalSign is highly promising, as it successfully combines GlobalSign’s high security certificates with TBS Internet’s sales and technical expertise.”
“We are pleased to welcome TBS Internet on board as the latest organisation to join our Partner Program. As the demand for GlobalSign certificates is constantly growing in Europe, our partnership with TBS Internet is key in making our products accessible to a much wider audience”, declared Steve Waite, Channel Director at GlobalSign. “Organisations of all sizes can now use the best SSL security solutions to protect their site and their brand in the face of ever-increasing online security threats, whilst also benefiting from TBS Internet’s unsurpassed experience in the field.”
GlobalSign’s Partner Program is designed for ISP’s, Web Hosts, Integrators, Domain Registrars and VARs to enable SSL Certificates to easily be integrated into product ranges as a value-add or revenue-generating product. An increasing number of partners are switching to GlobalSign to take advantage of its SSL program and the financial opportunity it offers. With four partnership levels available, the Program is conceived to match specific requirements, as partners can benefit from varying levels of pricing discounts, product integration, customer support and marketing and sales resources to further enhance the SSL reselling opportunity.
