Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) March 31, 2010
GlobalSign (http://www.globalsign.com), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Partner Programs, has today announced the launch of its new four-tier partner program, consisting of Authorized, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels, ideal for web hosts, ISPs, VARs, domain registrars and web consultants of all sizes wishing to incorporate SSL Certificates (a fundamental requirement for sites conducting online commerce or capturing customer data), as a value-add or revenue generating product into their current product portfolios.
Since the launch of its SSL Reselling program back in July 2007, GlobalSign has seen an unprecedented number of resellers, large and small alike, taking advantage of the opportunities reselling SSL Certificates has to offer. Now with four levels of commitment, partners can choose the most appropriate tier to suit their individual business needs, benefiting from varying levels of pricing discounts, product integration, customer support and marketing and sales resources.
As GlobalSign believe in helping every partner launch a successful SSL offering, it extends marketing and sales resources to all resellers, regardless of partnership tier. With a newly launched partner resource center, resellers have access to advanced SSL information, product copy, multi language canned HTML campaign templates, competitive analysis and inside sales training material, enabling them to learn about, integrate and market SSL to their customers easily and most importantly effectively. Also with access to a dedicated marketing representative, as well as a traditional account manager, GlobalSign provide partners with extra bespoke advice and support – ensuring their SSL is priced, positioned and promoted correctly first time round.
GlobalSign offers resellers automated SSL Certificate application and installation processes, speeding up delivery, whilst reducing customer support issues. From a simple Ajax API to full XML based API, the reselling process has been made even simpler and is now completely integrated with hosting control panels and purchasing systems already used by many resellers such as Hosting Controller, Ubersmith and WHMCS.
“GlobalSign prides itself on helping partners to launch their SSL offerings efficiently, as well as to grow their SSL business at every stage, said Steve Waite, Chief Marketing Officer, GlobalSign. “GlobalSign’s feature packed and simplified SSL product range enables resellers to offer the most secure and highly trusted SSL products in the market, whilst also taking advantage of the SSL reselling opportunity, generating additional revenue from existing customers and adding a value add product to their portfolio”.
Other partner program key features include the ability to resell all types of GlobalSign SSL Certificates, including fast issuance Domain Validation SSL, traditional Organization Validation SSL, and the newly standardised Extended Validation (EV) SSL, (which activates the green address bar interface in IE7 & 8, Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari), as well as the options to buy in bulk on a discounted deposit or PAYG basis. GlobalSign partners can also set up their own sub-resellers and benefit from full reporting and audit trail mechanisms.
