London, UK (PRWEB) March 22, 2010
GlobalSign (http://www.globalsign.eu), one of the longest established European Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Partner Programs, today announced that FairSSL (http://www.FairSSL.dk), a dedicated Danish SSL provider has joined the GlobalSign Partner Program, enabling them to provide GlobalSign’s full SSL Certificate product portfolio to their exiting customer base. The partnership will allow FairSSL’s customers to secure their websites, online transactions, web mail and other next generation online services using highly trusted GlobalSign SSL technology.
Specialising in reselling SSL Certificates since August 2009, FairSSL decided to include GlobalSign SSL within their existing SSL offerings due to the product range’s advanced features, technical capabilities, competitive pricing, as well as GlobalSign’s automated customer ordering system. GlobalSign offers partners a full XML API or simple Ajax API which enables a true transparent ordering process for website or control panel / web application integration, speeding up the certificate application and issuance process, thus providing an overall improved customer experience.
“Seeing the need for SSL Certificates to be readily available in Denmark, FairSSL wanted to be able to offer its customers a wide choice of SSL products in order to meet their individual requirements and adding GlobalSign’s range to our existing product portfolio enables us to do exactly this,” said Sanne Rasmussen, Managing Director, FairSSL. “A number of leading Danish companies including Grontmij | Carl Bro Group (http://www.grontmij-carlbro.com), have already chosen to purchase SSL from our website and have implemented GlobalSign’s trusted technology.”
“With the ongoing success of our SSL Partner Program we are delighted to welcome FairSSL on board as our latest gold level partner and look forward to them taking our trusted solutions to their Danish customer base”, said Paul Tourret, Managing Director, GlobalSign Ltd. “FairSSL is yet another example of a locally focused reseller choosing GlobalSign and we anticipate a long and mutually beneficial partnership with this security solutions’ provider.”
The newly formed partnership will allow FairSSL to offer customers all three types of SSL available in today’s market, including fast issuance Domain Validation SSL, traditional Organization Validation SSL, and the standardised Extended Validation (EV) SSL, which activates the green address bar interface in IE, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari browsers. Customers can benefit from advanced features including free Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) (to “step up” weak 40 bit browser to server connections to strong 128 bit) and have the option of including additional premium features (for example, Subject Alternative Names (SANs) and wildcard characters to allow the securing of multiple sites with a single certificate), secure in knowing that all SSL Certificates are issued from GlobalSign’s widely distributed 2048 bit Root CA Certificate and are compatible with all browsers, operating systems and applications, ensuring high levels of trust.
GlobalSign SSL Certificates are now available through FairSSL’s website at http://www.fairssl.dk.
