"Like our many other partners, SingleHop can provide their customers with the most future proof SSL Certificates on the Internet and instantly gain a competitive advantage with GlobalSign's array of SSL solutions tied into their current offerings."
"GloblaSign provides the most advanced, efficient, and adaptable platform for purchasing and maintaining security certificates. While our customers have a broad range of security needs, they have also come to expect tremendous levels of control from us. That is why, when it came to choosing a provider for security products, we felt aligned to and supported by GlobalSign as our clients would not just have a broad range of cost-effective security offerings to choose from, but could quickly and efficiently manage them in LEAP, SingleHop's familiar and trusted platform." Commented SingleHop's VP of Communications, Dan Salcedo.
