Leading certificate authority enables Sanmina to digitally sign email and encrypt all internal communications  

BOSTON, Mass., October 15, 2019 -- GMO GlobalSign (, a global Certificate Authority (CA) and leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it is enabling Sanmina, a leading integrated manufacturing solutions provider, to digitally sign all outgoing email. In addition, Sanmina is encrypting all internal communications with Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME).

As phishing attacks and other security issues continue to increase globally, Sanmina added GlobalSign S/MIME Certificates to its IT security program in order to encrypt all internal communications and digitally sign email for 25,000 employee accounts within Gmail. By working with GlobalSign, Sanmina has also been able to encrypt Gmail emails with customers that have already implemented S/MIME.

Sanmina designs, manufactures, and repairs some of the most complex and innovative optical, electronic and mechanical products in the world, providing end-to-end design, manufacturing and logistics solutions to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

“Integrating GlobalSign into our email system provides Sanmina with industry leading security for email communications, bolstering our ability to stay ahead of phishing and social engineering attacks,” said Matt Ramberg, VP of Information Security, Sanmina. “The recent availability of S/MIME within GSuite provided an opportunity to make these improvements with GlobalSign so that we can enable even more secure communications for our employees, customers and suppliers.”

With GlobalSign certificates, enterprises are able to digitally sign and encrypt email using S/MIME technology.

Digitally signing an email proves authorship and prevents tampering, assuring the email recipient the source of the email is a trustworthy party, and that the content of the email has not been altered while in transit. Encrypting email ensures message privacy and keeps sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands. With S/MIME encryption, only the intended recipient can access email contents.

”About 3.4 billion spam emails are sent every single day. Knowing that, enterprises such as Sanmina are increasingly looking for a way to minimize this issue affecting businesses worldwide. Ultimately they approached us to help them significantly improve email security with our market-leading S/MIME solutions,” said Lila Kee, General Manager, Americas, GlobalSign. “Having the ability to encrypt employee communications is critical, and GlobalSign is one of a handful of trusted CA’s worldwide offering the capability.”

GlobalSign is a leader in S/MIME email solutions, protecting tens of thousands of businesses worldwide from phishing and other security concerns. To learn more about our solutions, visit
