Digital Shrink Wrap to Protect Your Brand
VeriSign® Code Signing Certificates provide a virtual “shrink wrap”
for secure delivery of content over the Internet. When customers download software
signed with Authenticode® Technology and verified by VeriSign, they can be assured
of the content source and the content integrity. Code Signing adds a level of trust
to your applications and makes them harder to falsify or damage, protecting your
brand and your intellectual property. Learn more: 5 Reasons for Code Signing.
Increase Customer Confidence with Fewer Security Warnings
When Internet Explorer, Exchange, Outlook®, or other Microsoft programs encounter
unsigned executables, a security warning disrupts the user or content simply fails
to load. To prevent disruption, publishers who use ActiveX® controls, plug-ins
and other executables should sign their code using Authenticode Technology and a
VeriSign Code Signing Certificate for Microsoft Authenticode. Learn more: How Code
Make the Most of Your Code Signing Investment
With VeriSign Code Signing Certificates, developers select a platform,
a validity period and install the certificate on their desktop or a portable device
such as a USB drive. A timestamp option shows when code was signed, allowing customers
to verify that the code signing certificate was valid at the time of the digital
signature. VeriSign is a trusted provider of digital certificates for Microsoft
Windows® Logo programs. Learn more about Code Signing for Microsoft Developers.
