London, United Kingdom – (The Hosting News) – June 18, 2008 – SSL certificate, and secure server specialist for web hosting companies, GlobalSign, has reported significant revenue opportunities for companies engaging in partnerships, to expand core business lines with its security products.
Steve Waite, Marketing Director, GlobalSign noted, ”We do not just offer exceptional margins for such a high value product. We also offer easy integration and all the business campaign resources to make sure partners have the fastest market launch and ROI possible. We make sure minimal time and effort is needed to add SSL to their portfolios and we recommend companies of all sizes speak to us today about how we can help them leverage the SSL revenue opportunity.”
Companies such as Web Hosts, ISPs, Domain Registrars and VARs have the perfect opportunity to gain additional revenue from their customer base by reselling SSL Certificates – a fundamental requirement for sites conducting online commerce or capturing customer data.
Since launching the SSL Partner Program last year, GlobalSign has seen a continuous rise in the number of new partners joining. Offering the most highly featured SSL product with extensive technical, marketing and sales resources, makes GlobalSign’s SSL reseller program one of the most advanced SSL reseller programs currently available.
GlobalSign’s simplified SSL product range differs from that of competing products, in that all of GlobalSign SSL Certificates come with enhanced SGC security (provided free of charge) to ensure minimal encryption strengths of at least 128 bit and up to 256 bit. GlobalSign SSL products are also neatly arranged into three groups, categorized by the differing vetting processes – domain validation, organisation validation and extended validation (also known as EV SSL). The user-friendly grouping is designed to make GlobalSign SSL easy to understand, and easier to sell.
High margins are needed for the partner to generate high profits. GlobalSign offers high revenue per SSL Certificate sold (SRP 99 pounds) where average resellers make 24 pounds with no commitment. Even higher margins are available on bulk purchase plans – starting at 5 Certificates.
