With more organizations moving critical applications and services to Cloud deployments it only made sense to expand our existing technologies and business processes to meet the needs of those investing in the Cloud
Portsmouth, NH (Vocus) September 9, 2010
GlobalSign (http://www.globalsign.com ), a specialist in PKI security and Cloud security solutions, today announced the introduction of GlobalSign’s Digital Certificate Solutions for Cloud Hosting, Application and Storage Providers. GlobalSign’s flexible licensing models, technology options and web services support the distinct security needs of the expanding Cloud services market.
With the rapid growth of Cloud services, applications and storage, many organizations and individuals are concerned about how to properly implement security. In particular this is because traditional Digital Certificate solutions and licensing models are not compatible with the virtualized environment and pay per usage pricing model of Cloud services. As a specialist in online security, GlobalSign recognized the rising need for a solution that was designed and suited for the unique requirements of the Cloud.
GlobalSign has developed a number of technologies and business models that meet the advanced requirements of Cloud based deployments:
- On demand web service APIs for SSL application and issuance
- Unlimited Certificate issuance and Server License policies
- Windows and Linux libraries to automate Certificate installation
- Multi-domain SSL securing up to 40 FQDNs per Certificate
- Future-proof 2048 bit root security
- User authentication using X.509 Digital IDs
- VBA, Adobe Air and Java application signing
“With more organizations moving critical applications and services to Cloud deployments it only made sense to expand our existing technologies and business processes to meet the needs of those investing in the Cloud,” said Steve Waite, Chief Marketing Officer, GlobalSign. “Delivering on-demand security for Cloud service developers and hosting companies will help promote the adoption of new and interesting Cloud applications.”
By leveraging current SSL security products and services and also offering a set of rich features and options tailored to the needs of Cloud based models, GlobalSign can position itself in the Cloud market and demonstrate our continuing commitment to offering industry leading security solutions.
