- (1888PressRelease) July 29, 2011 - GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com.sg), a specialist in PKI security and Cloud security solutions, today announced the introduction of GlobalSign's Digital Certificate Solutions for Cloud Hosting, Application and Storage providers. GlobalSign's flexible licensing models, technology options and web services support the distinct security needs essential for emerging Cloud services.
Due to the expanding growth of Cloud services, applications and storage, rising concerns of how to properly implement security has become a rising concern for many organizations and individuals. In particular, traditional Digital Certificate solutions and licensing models may not fit the model of Cloud deployment due to its virtualized environments and pay per usage type model. As a specialist in providing online security, GlobalSign recognized the rising need for a solution that was designed and suited for the unique requirements of the Cloud.
To meet these evolved and advanced requirements, GlobalSign has developed a number of technologies and business models to better suit Cloud requirements:
• On demand web service APIs for SSL application and issuance
• Unlimited Certificate issuance and Server License policies
• Windows and Linux libraries to automate Certificate installation
• Multi-domain SSL securing up to 40 FQDNs per Certificate
• Future-proof 2048 bit root security
• User authentication using X.509 Digital IDs
• VBA, Adobe Air and Java application signing
"With the growth in organizations moving critical applications and services to Cloud deployments it only made sense to expand our existing technologies and business processes to meet the needs of those investing in the Cloud," said Steve Waite, Chief Marketing Officer, GlobalSign. "Delivering on-demand security for Cloud service developers and hosting companies will help promote the adoption of new and interesting Cloud applications."
By leveraging their current SSL security products and services and also offering a set of rich features and options tailored to the needs of Cloud based models, GlobalSign can position itself in the emerging Cloud market and demonstrate their continuing commitment to offering industry leading security solutions.
