SSL certificates by GlobalSign

GlobalSign

GlobalSign was founded in Belgium in 1996, and is now part of the Japanese GMO Group. Its historic roots and current mother company explain its current dominance in the European and Japanese SSL markets. GlobalSign is pioneering SSL services over IPv6, and is a frequent innovator of SSL solutions, with One-Click SSL, an easy way to install SSL certificates without technical knowledge, or Cloud SSL, an SNI-based solution that allows SSL certificates to run with a shared IP address.

Advantages


  • High-end certificate authority
  • Market leader in Europe and Japan
  • Balanced product offer
  • Low-cost AlphaSSL offer

GlobalSign's a household name, even more so on its home fronts. GlobalSign is the main challenger of the Symantec group companies, and is an excellent choice if you're aiming to convince a European or Japanese audience.

The differences


  • Free mal, owa and autodisover subdomains
  • Secures both www and non-www
  • Unlimited server licences
  • Cheap SANs

GlobalSign may not seem the cheapest at first sight, but offer lots of free options, making them a cost-effective and qualitative choice in many circumstances.

's opinion


GlobalSign is playing the high-end SSL segment, where Symantec is its only competitor. Unless you're targeting an American public, GlobalSign's options and prices will definitely play in their favour.
