Since launching the SSL Partner Program, GlobalSign has seen many partners switch to GlobalSign to take advantage of our SSL program and the financial opportunity it offers

GlobalSign Inc. one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in Portsmouth, NH - 6 August, 2009 - GlobalSign Inc. one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Partner Programs, today announced significant growth in the number of partners joining its Partner Program throughout the last twelve months. Hundreds of new partners have joined in recent months, and the latest high profile partners to come on board include Liquid Web and NetEarth Group - leading ISPs and hosting specialists in the US as well as Webfusion, Donhost and 123-reg - the UK's leading hosting companies.

During 2007, GlobalSign launched its channel-ready SSL solution, designed specifically with SSL resellers such as Web Hosts, ISPs, Domain Registrars, VARs, consultants and integrators in mind. With significant revenue opportunities for partners to expand their core business lines with GlobalSign security products, SSL can be sold as a standalone product or bundled together within existing product portfolios as a value add option. Many webhosting companies find they are already hosting SSL Certificates, so selling a product their customers are already purchasing makes perfect business sense, offering customers a "one stop shop" service, as well as opening up new revenue streams. Offering the most highly trusted and feature packed SSL Certificates with extensive fast to market integration tools together with sales, marketing and technical resources at the ready, makes GlobalSign's SSL reseller program one of the most advanced SSL Partner Programs currently available.

Selling SSL Certificates is effortless with GlobalSign's easy to use, revolutionary management interface. Resellers can offer GlobalSign's range of SSL Certificates through a full XML API, or a Simple Ajax API, designed specifically with the channel in mind. The management interface known as the GlobalSign Certificate Center, a Software as a Service type solution, enables customers to quickly, simply, and conveniently manage their customers' SSL Certificates. GlobalSign's "self-service portal" architecture means the reseller can react quickly to their customers. Even basic functions such as Certificate reissues and invoice generation are handled without the need to rely on the SSL Provider's technical support. Integration has been made easy and when combined with GlobalSign's canned marketing templates, partners can be up and running in no time.

With absolutely no commitment, no risks or hidden start up costs involved, GlobalSign's Partner Program is the obvious resellers' choice. Partners can opt for Pay As You Go pricing, ensuring they only pay for the number of Certificates actually sold, or alternatively can take advantage of hugely discounted bulk purchasing, enabling higher margins to be made. GlobalSign's Partner Program is designed for business of all sizes and offers a more strategic program for the larger organization, including the most unique benefits, pricing discounts and co branded opportunities available among SSL Partner Programs.

"Since launching the SSL Partner Program, GlobalSign has seen many partners switch to GlobalSign to take advantage of our SSL program and the financial opportunity it offers," says John Murray, Vice President of Sales, GlobalSign Inc, "With leading hosting companies worldwide joining GlobalSign, we are delighted a much wider audience is able to benefit from the strong and credible future proof security that GlobalSign's 2048bit SSL Certificates provide."
