GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Partner Programs, today announced its most recent initiatives as part of its big picture strategy to break down the barriers faced by hosting companies for mass adoption and usage of SSL security. World Hosting Days 2013 (March 19-21) in Rust Germany will see the company demonstrate to partners new technology and practices that solidify how GlobalSign is doing more than any other CA to improve the SSL ecosystem.

Over the course of last year, GlobalSign has made fully automated SSL reselling widely accessible to hosting companies thanks to new integration options for its OneClickSSL technology. At the end of 2012, the collaboration between CloudFlare and GlobalSign has led to the fastest SSL secured page-load speed available today, enabling the deployment of Always-On-SSL security at no detriment to website performance. This year in Germany, GlobalSign’s EMEA Director of Business Development Paul van Brouwershaven goes a step further by tackling the challenging issue of IPv4 address shortage, demonstrating how a combination of SNI and GlobalSign’s CloudSSL solution allows hosting companies to run multiple certificates on a single IP address
“GlobalSign’s aim has always been to facilitate SSL reselling for hosting companies of all sizes. But we are aware that each of them face different issues and that SSL processes can become labor-intensive and costly”, says Paul van Brouwershaven, EMEA Business Development Director, GMO GlobalSign Ltd. “Our partners benefit from innovations that are customised to answer their specific needs and included as standard at no extra cost with all of our SSL Certificates.”
During the show GlobalSign will be engaging with leaders throughout the hosting industry about the specific SSL-related hurdles they face, and demonstrate how each of its latest innovations is another stepping stone towards facilitating the mass deployment of SSL security. Through its Partner Programs, GlobalSign offers hosting customers a portfolio of solutions designed to enable mass deployment of SSL and to help build a profitable business from reselling security.
