While our customers have a broad range of security needs, they have also come to expect tremendous levels of control from us. That is why, when it came to choosing a provider for security products, we felt aligned to and supported by GlobalSign as our clients would not just have a broad range of cost-effective security offerings to choose from, but could quickly and efficiently manage them in LEAP, SingleHopâ€™s familiar and trusted platform.â€ Commented SingleHopâ€™s VP of Communications, Dan Salcedo.
