  • (1888PressRelease) July 28, 2011 - GlobalSign (, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL security announced that it has seen an industry leading 4% growth in the number of SSL Certificates implemented in just the last month. This represents in real terms thousands of new customers switching to the GlobalSign brand to secure their websites, online transactions, web mail and other online services, further cementing GlobalSign's position in the top 4 issuers of SSL Certificates worldwide.

    According to Netcraft, of the top four Certification Authorities comprising Symantec (having acquired VeriSign in August), GoDaddy, Comodo and GlobalSign, Symantec and Comodo both saw losses in the number of sites using their SSL, with the newly acquired Symantec brands suffering an overall loss of 3900 secure sites (including the VeriSign, GeoTrust, Thawte and RapidSSL brands).

    "GlobalSign is delighted to see significant month after month growth in our SSL market share, especially during the period where so much talk has been of Symantec's acquisition of VeriSign's SSL business", said Steve Waite, Chief Marketing Officer, GlobalSign, "GlobalSign has always gone to market with the best possible customer experience driving our product, enterprise and channel strategy, regardless of the size of the company or the level of assistance required in achieving project goals. We are happy to see that customers are choosing GlobalSign for so many positive reasons, especially our excellent reputation for customer service."

    GlobalSign's momentum in the SSL market is expected to continue as strategic expansion plans and technology acquisitions are executed. With the recent launch of a dedicated localised presence for the French, Dutch and Canadian markets, and the launch of further local presences imminent, GlobalSign continues to strengthen and position itself as a reliable and stable SSL provider, providing the most highly trusted SSL Certificates available.
