Spanish Web Security Provider Joins GlobalSign Partner Program
SSL Certificates and digital signature solutions now available to HispaSSL's customer base
London, UK - March 6 2012 - GlobalSign (www.globalsign.co.uk), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Certificate security, today announced that HispaSSL (www.hispassl.com), a leading Spanish security provider, has joined its Partner Program and will be promoting its full range of SSL and Digital Signature solutions to its customer base. The newly formed partnership will allow HispaSSL customers to secure their websites, online transactions, emails, documents and applications.
A leader in electronic security in the Spanish market, HispaSSL has added the full range of GlobalSign SSL Certificates to its product portfolio to meet the increasing security requirements of its customer base. With a growth of around 26% in the number of SSL Certificates in use in the last year in Spain (www.netcraft.com), users are increasingly recognising the need to secure their online transactions to prevent phishing attacks and online fraud. SSL Certificates allow website owners to establish a secure connection between browser and server, protecting any confidential data in transit (such as credit card details or login information) from prying eyes.
The GlobalSign Partner Program simplifies SSL reselling for ISP's, Web Hosts, Integrators or Domain Registrars as it enables SSL Certificates to easily be integrated into product ranges as value add options. Partners benefit from a more comprehensive portfolio at a minimal cost and receive easy access to the full GlobalSign security suite. Code Signing Certificates and digital IDs for secure email and document signing can also be resold from a single portal, allowing HispaSSL to meet a whole range of security requirements and build a more loyal customer base.
"When we set up our business back in 2003, we set ourselves a mission to offer high levels of encryption at a reasonable price", says Jesus Carmona, CEO of HispaSSL. "Thanks to GlobalSign, we will now be able to live up to this policy and provide thousands of websites and servers the levels of security that today's online environments require."
"With security concerns on the increase, companies are looking to offer their current customers additional solutions", said Paul Tourret, Managing Director, GMO GlobalSign Ltd. "We are delighted to welcome HispaSSL on board as Spanish customers can now have easy access to our digital certificate range. Combined with the security expertise and quality of service from a local provider, we anticipate a successful partnership which will help customers to easily source the right product for their requirements."
HispaSSL offers digital certificate SSL solutions (X.509 v3 certificates as recommended by the International telecommunications Union). Since the brand was established and registered in 2003, HispaSSL's mission has been to offer the highest levels of encryption to its customers at a reasonable price.
