Spanish Web Security Provider Joins GlobalSign Partner Program

SSL Certificates and digital signature solutions now available to HispaSSL's customer base

Boston, MA - March 6 2012 - GlobalSign (, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Certificate security, today announced that HispaSSL (, 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.

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.
