Enabling Cloud-Based Service Providers to Ensure Security of Transactions, Identities and Data for Their Customers

RUST, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Mar 15, 2016) - Today at World Hosting Days 2016, GMO GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com), a leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Everything (IoE), announced a unique hosted SSL and PKI certificate service with unmatched, high-scale issuance capabilities. With this new service, GlobalSign is able to issue certificates at unprecedented speed and volume -- enabling cloud-based service providers and IoT innovators to differentiate themselves using security as a competitive advantage.

Security today should not be considered an optional extra, but a necessity. Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience.

GlobalSign's high-scale services are designed to fit the cloud on-demand model, automating processes, maximizing efficiency and creating economies of scale. For example, Shopify, a leading cloud-based commerce platform, is delivering SSL Certificates as part of its product offering to its 243,000+ merchants.

"We felt it was important to provide SSL encryption to our existing and future merchants," said Brennan Loh, Director of Business Development at Shopify. "We are excited to lead the charge in making the Internet a safer and better place for everyone and to help our merchants build trust with their customers."

In addition to providing a competitive advantage, this new high-volume certificate service improves the user experience for cloud-based service provider customers. Traditionally an ecommerce service provider merchant had to redirect customers to their platform provider's secured domain or needed to source, install and manage their own certificates. GlobalSign's certificate services include full lifecycle management from deployment to renewal, making the customer experience completely seamless and un-interrupted. SaaS ecommerce providers can now significantly enhance their value proposition by easily provisioning high volumes of SSL Certificates that can be hosted directly on the merchant's domain.
