Why a thawte Certificate?

Thawte was the first certificate authority to issue SSL certificates to public entities outside of the United States, quickly accounting for 40% of the global SSL market. In 2000, Thawte was acquired by VeriSign, Inc. and has become a key member of the VeriSign family of trust brands. To date, Thawte has issued more than 945,000 SSL and code signing certificates since 1995, protecting identities and transactions in over 240 countries.

As a leading global certificate authority, Thawte provides online security trusted by millions around the world. Expert multilingual support, robust authentication practices, and easy online management make Thawte the best value for SSL certificates and code signing certificates.

Thawte offer many different types of SSL certificates to cater for every requirement:

  • SSL 123 Certificates: Thawte® SSL123 Certificates have the fastest issuance time to quickly enable encrypted connections to your web server. This domain-only validation SSL Certificate provides up to 256-bit encryption for intranets, mail servers, and other web-based applications that are not at risk for phishing or fraud. SSL123 Certificates include domain authentication
  • SSL Web Serer Certificates: Thawte® SSL Web Server Certificates secure confidential information exchanged online and confirm your site’s identity to employees, business partners, and other users. When users click the Thawte® Trusted Site Seal or view certificate details, your organization name appears and shows that Thawte, a trusted certificate authority, has verified the site’s identity.
  • SSL Web Server Certificates with EV: Thawte® SSL Web Server Certificates with EV enable the most visible security indicator: the green address bar in high-security browsers, assuring users that your site is secure and your identity has been authenticated to the industry’s highest standard. When customers see the green address bar and the Thawte® Trusted Site Seal, they gain the confidence to complete their transaction.
  • SGC SuperCerts: Thawte® SGC SuperCerts help keep online transactions secure by enabling every web site visitor to experience the strongest SSL encryption available to them. Most SSL certificates are capable of strong encryption (128-bit or higher), however, certain older browsers and operating systems cannot step-up to 128-bit encryption unless an SSL certificate with SGC technology is used.
  • Wildcard SSL Certificates: Thawte® Wildcard SSL Certificates secure multiple subdomains with a single SSL Certificate, reducing management time and cost. Using the wildcard notation (an asterisk and period before your domain name) allows you to extend security to different subdomains based on your top-level domain name.

As application developers GMAC understand the advantages of code signing certificates. With code signing from Thawte, you can assure users that your code and content is safe to download, and protect your most valuable business asset: your reputation.
