Authentication. Security. Trust. 

Communicate and transact securely.



GlobalSign was formed in 1996 as one of the Internet’s original trust service providers (technically known as Certificate Authorities). Over the years we have issued millions of trusted Digital Certificates to people, servers and mobile devices for Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) enabled solutions and applications.

GlobalSign Digital Certificates protect the data and transactions of numerous Fortune 100 companies and Governments all around the world. Our automation technologies allow organizations to transform how they use SSL across networks and into the Cloud. Our solutions take the pain out of using cryptography and allow organizations to benefit from secure workflows, increased productivity and the peace of mind. 

GlobalSign is arguably the largest pure-play Certificate Authority. Our focus has been, and always will be, on providing convenient and highly productive digital signature solutions for organizations of all sizes.

Our partner network of 3000+ hosting companies and integrators benefit directly from increased revenue and high customer retention rates thanks to our Partner Program.
