Xolphin adds PDF Signing solutions to its online security suite

“Xolphin has understood the urgency and necessity of delivering electronic document security, and we are pleased to be working with the team on expanding the reach of the solution in the Dutch market”

GlobalSign (http://www.globalsign.eu), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in Partner Programs, today announced that Xolphin B.V., one of the largest Dutch security solution providers has expanded its product line with PDF Signing certificates from GlobalSign. This new addition will give Xolphin the opportunity to offer a comprehensive high value package of security solutions to its customer base. The PDF signing solution will allow organisations to assure authorship and integrity of high value documents, thereby enabling the efficiencies and productivity of paperless workflows.

Xolphin has been providing SSL Certificates since 2002. Its aim to provide high quality Digital Certificate solutions led the company to join the GlobalSign Partner Program a year ago. The partnership gave Xolphin access to offer the full range of GlobalSign products, from instantly issued Domain Validated Certificates to the highly trusted Extended Validation Certificates. Choosing GlobalSign means Xolphin’s customers benefit from the highest levels of security, as all Certificates are issued from GlobalSign's widely distributed 2048 bit Root CA Certificate and include advanced features such as unlimited server licensing and full browser compatibility.

Xolphin identified a growing requirement for secure electronic workflows in the Dutch business landscape. For several years the government has been encouraging companies trading B2B (or directly with Government entities) to transition to electronic invoicing. To ensure documents are authentic, and the contents of the document remain integral, enterprises must use digital signatures, which can be created by using Certificates such as PDF Signing Certificates from GlobalSign. The digital signatures, which are cryptographic representations of the signer’s verified identity, activate the “blue ribbon” in Adobe Reader – clearly displaying the author’s identity and a confirmation of document integrity. The technology allows the contents of invoices, pay slips, NDAs etc to be cryptographically “locked” to prevent tampering, helping companies comply with the latest archiving requirements.    

“The PDF Signing solutions help customers meet today’s legal requirements through high security features including embedded timestamps and safe storage on hardware”, said Maarten Bremer, founder and CEO of Xolphin. “We want to offer a complete range of security solutions for websites and also e-mail, software and online documents. The GlobalSign solutions are the ideal complement to our range of hardware tokens, HSM’s and related security hardware products”.

“Xolphin has understood the urgency and necessity of delivering electronic document security, and we are pleased to be working with the team on expanding the reach of the solution in the Dutch market”, said Paul Tourret, Managing Director, GMO GlobalSign Ltd. “We are very proud that Xolphin has chosen GlobalSign and this illustrates the value our multilingual customer service and sales support team add to the partnership experience.”

The GlobalSign Partner Program is designed to enable SSL Certificates to be easily integrated into product ranges as a value-adding or revenue-generating product. The Partner Program also gives partners access to the full suite of security solutions, including digital certificates for code signing, email security and document signing. GlobalSign conceived the Program with each partner’s specific needs in mind, offering different levels of pricing discounts, product integration, customer support and marketing and sales resources to make the most of the online security opportunity.
