GlobalSign Teams with RSA Security to Help Secure transactions Wednesday 7 March 2001 PDF Print GlobalSign announced today that it has signed a partnership with RSA. GlobalSign has joined the RSA Secured™ Partner Program to support interoperability between its products and solutions and RSA Keon® public key infrastructure (PKI) software. As part of the program, GlobalSign has been awarded "RSA Secured RSA Keon Ready" certification signalling its compatibility with digital certificate software. The RSA Secured certification lets organisations know GlobalSign products and solutions are compatible with RSA Security's market-leading security products and technologies. Due to the success of GlobalSign certificates, there is a need to ensure maximum compatibility with other clients, server software and hardware. GlobalSign Ready! Program™ has been developed to deploy a network of software and hardware partners. Many companies have signed partnership agreements to expand GlobalSign's compatibility solutions, including Ascom, MS Outlook, Netscape, TrustedMIME, MS Explorer, Ultimaco, Ascom, ValiCert, nCipher….
