GlobalSign code signing certificates are used by developers on all platforms to digitally sign the applications and software they distribute over the Internet. Including the name of the publisher and protecting against malware injections and other corruption, signed code provides customers the same security as store bought, shrink-wrapped software. Code signing certificates use a unique cryptographic hash to bind the identity of the publisher to the software.
Security warnings that appear with unsigned code are replaced with notifications containing the software publisher's information, preventing users from abandoning the install and increasing download rates. Signing code adds an essential layer of trust to the installation process.
