Boston, MA - March 14 2013 - GlobalSign, the enterprise SaaS-based Certificate Authority (CA), announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named GlobalSign SSL Certificates a Gold winner of the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in SSL. The security industry celebrated its 9th Annual 2013 Global Excellence Awards in San Francisco by honoring excellence in every facet of the industry, including products, people behind the successes and best companies.

More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated, and their average scores determined the 2013 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 27, 2013, in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.

GlobalSign SSL Certificates provide enterprises with a unique set of added features and benefits that maximize the value of SSL investments and make the security protocol practical and efficient for the enterprise. Fortune 100 and government organizations around the world conduct a wide variety of web transactions each and every day, ranging from significant credit card transactions and confidential data and file transfers to lower-priority browsing of social-media platforms, all of which are secured by GlobalSign’s SSL certificate solutions. GlobalSign is transforming how organizations use SSL across networks and the cloud through automated workflow and management technology, and by building new value-add benefits into the core DNA of the GlobalSign SSL range.

GlobalSign's innovation and forward-thinking vision of Internet security have positioned the company as an industry leader. As a result of recent collaboration-driven technology enhancements and partnerships with CloudFlare, StopTheHacker and Netcraft, GlobalSign provides the fastest secure page-load speeds available in the market. These partnerships have also allowed GlobalSign to offer augmented tools that help administrators protect against web server compromises through malware distribution alerts and enhanced protection against unknown phishing compromises.

GlobalSign's scalable SaaS certificate management portal and APIs allow centralized control of certificates and offer direct integration into third-party tools such as Venafi's Certificate Manager for complete control over all certificates within the enterprise. By using GlobalSign’s certificate solutions, enterprises gain instant issuance of certificates that support multiple departmental identities for both public-facing websites and internal networks. These solutions are backed by flexible business terms, industry-leading SLAs and enterprise-class warranty programs.

"This industry honor is the greatest endorsement of the fact that GlobalSign is ahead of the curve in offering best-of-the-best products that provide the highest security in SSL and the Internet as a whole," said Steve Waite, CEO, GlobalSign Americas. "We feel GlobalSign separates itself from the rest of the pack by continually innovating in the digital-certificate space and by doing whatever it takes to make Web transactions, for the enterprise and individuals alike, much safer."
