The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt the economy and business operations since social distancing and other mitigation measures went into effect in March. It hasn’t helped that cyber criminals have used the general commotion around COVID-19 to launch an ever-increasing number of online threats and attacks. In fact, CNBC recently reported that “hackers are using the disruption created by the coronavirus pandemic to target people and steal personal information from them by posing as trustworthy figures.”
The technology industry is acutely aware of its role in the coming economic recovery. The split between channel professionals seeing growth and declines is the difference between those using legacy versus future proofed technology solutions. Over the next several months and into the recovery, the channel will likely see a drift toward technologies and services that align with post-pandemic needs – but you need to act now to meet those demands.
Channel to the Rescue
Every day the impact of cyber attacks is seen around the world, but now more than ever governments, leading global brands, small businesses, and innovative start-ups in all industries are feeling the pain. The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported a fivefold increase in cyber attacks, and urges extreme vigilance by businesses and consumers alike.
So it comes as no surprise that some businesses feel they are losing their competitive edge, customer confidence, and market reputation as a result. Many more have some level of naivety that it will never happen to them. But through smartphones, social media, ecommerce, and other means, we are all willingly and unwillingly sharing more personal information on the internet. When any aspect of digital security is relaxed it jeopardizes all personal information – credit cards, bank accounts, email accounts, etc. The whole identity is at risk.
Secure identity services are necessary to protect business and consumer endpoints (machines, laptops, email, servers, mobile and other devices), whether for encryption, secure email, authentication, or code and document signing. Now is the time for the channel to come to the rescue of affected businesses and their customers with an end-to-end Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) offering.
Leading the Way for a More Secure Future
What if there was an “Everything-as-a-Service” cloud-based solution that could provide the end-to-end security that today’s world demands? One that you could easily offer within your portfolio of solutions to customers? There is. GlobalSign makes PKI and digital certificate management easy for any channel partner. You get the benefit of partnership and using our nearly 30 years of managed PKI expertise and technology that provides automated, high-volume, high-scale identity management.
Why the Channel Needs a Reliable Certificate Authority Partner
Channel partners are vital for cybersecurity now more than ever as there are millions of businesses around the world, from small startups to mid-market and large enterprises, looking for identity solutions for their remote workforces. These businesses span countries, cultures, and industries and there is no easy way for one company to establish and maintain relationships with all of them directly.
All companies want to focus on innovating and growing their business and therefore need to rely on trusted relationships with channel partners to help address their needs. With the demand for cybersecurity on the up, and industry growth – and hacking! – continuing to rise, our goal at GlobalSign is to offer our PKI solutions to businesses all around the world. Our Channel Program is continuously growing to gain further geographic reach, in both emerging and established enterprise markets.

We want to extend that reach even further by building a bigger partner community to better serve our customers and your customers. GlobalSign’s Channel Partner Program is designed to help our partners drive revenue growth by utilizing our PKI identity security solutions and adding them to your offerings; helping you to meet your customers’ needs during these critical times.
