With the acquisition of VeriSign, the first Certificate Authority to provide SSL in 1995, Symantec today provides security solutions that help assure customers that they are safe from search to browse to buy and sign-in.
Since the acquisition in August 2010, the growth of the SSL business has been on an accelerated path – and Symantec is committed to further fueling that growth with research and development. New features help defend your website against attack and make it easier to keep your SSL Certificates up to date.
All Symantec SSL Certificates include the Norton Secured Seal, the most trusted mark on the Internet, Symantec Seal-in-Search, and daily website malware scanning so that you can offer customer peace of mind at all points of their online experience.* Every Extended Validation or Pro SSL Certificate now includes vulnerability assessment to help you quickly identify and take action against the most exploitable weaknesses on your website.

Software developers enjoy an environment where they can readily develop and deploy applications anywhere and everywhere. Unfortunately, the potential for fraud and the spread of malicious software has increased as well. A Code Signing Certificate generates a digital signature that insures the authentication of the author and the integrity that the code has not been compromised. Increasingly, operating systems, software applications, devices, and mobile networks require a digital signature to ensure that the code will not harm or interrupt services.
Different software platforms have different requirements and different tools for signing code.
