Web e-business specialist freecom.net, already hosting Web sites
for over 5,000 UK SMEs, is strengthening its offering by bundling
SSL Web server certificates from ViaCode, the Royal Mail digital
security subsidiary.

The move will give freecom.net customers the protection and
assurance of the UK's strongest trust brand, coupled with
class-leading security technology, says freecom.net technical
director Robert Smith. "ViaCode Web server certificates are the
first to support automatic on-line revocation checking, giving
more protection to our on-line merchants and their customers. But
what also matters is how Web server certificates are issued and
managed. Nobody does that better than ViaCode."

Automatically trusted by browsers including Netscape Navigator and
Internet Explorer, Web server certificates from ViaCode are
applied for on-line and are issued only after the industry's most
thorough authentication processes. Normally issued within three
days, they can be valid for one or two years and feature
semi-automated renewal for lower administration costs. With direct
UK support during business hours, sites can display the ViaCode
Trust Seal which, when clicked once, shows visitors the status of
the certificate.

Backed by Royal Mail with its 350-year track record of trusted
service, ViaCode also offers the UK's strongest fully-managed
personal certificates. Costing from £100 per user per year,
ViaCode personal certificates are bundled with client software
that allows them to be used to authenticate, encrypt and digitally
sign a wide range of third-party and custom software applications
including e-mail. Web server certificates are delivered by ViaCode
in partnership with global certification authority Entrust.net.

freecom.net provides a comprehensive range of Internet solutions
to the SME market. The freecom.net range of services includes
domain name registration, website design and hosting, technical
support, e-marketing services and full e-commerce capability.
With over 5000 customers, freecom.net is one of the UK's largest
business Internet providers.

ViaCode operates the world's most proven and most widely-used
enterprise public key infrastructure (PKI) to issue and digital
certificates for employees of companies and organisations in
public and private sectors, as well as individual consumers.

The ViaCode service delivers the benefits of PKI-based secure and
trustworthy e-commerce, but avoids the cost and skills overheads,
and the technological risk, that self-ownership and operation of a
PKI can bring.
