Webfusion and GlobalSign Extends Partnership

(Ping! Zine) – GMO GlobalSign Inc. (www.globalsign.com), one of the longest established specialists in SSL Partner Programs for hosting companies, today announced that its Platinum Partner, leading hosting company Webfusion  (www.webfusion.co.uk),  has extended its partnership with GlobalSign for a further period of three years. The extended partnership will enable Webfusion to continue to provide its customer base with GlobalSign’s highly trusted and secure 2048bit SSL technology to allow secure ecommerce.

As one of the UK’s largest hosting providers, Webfusion decided to include SSL Certificates within its hosting packages as well as offering them as a standalone product, after joining GlobalSign’s Partner Program in March 2009.  To date Webfusion and its customers alike have reaped the benefits of Webfusion adding SSL Certificates into its portfolio.  Webfusion has become a top ten hoster of SSL secure sites within the UK hosting market, whilst their customers have benefited from fully securing their websites and online transactions in the knowledge that they are using a highly trusted and well established SSL provider and Certification Authority. 

With the continuation of this successful partnership, Webfusion has clearly demonstrated its commitment to bringing SSL and other security solutions to its extensive customer base.  International expansion being at the forefront of Webfusions’ growth plans – having launched in the US and Spain and with other territories planned- Webfusion is truly committed to becoming a global hosting provider.

“It is vitally important to us that we partner with the most credible and forward thinking vendors for every third party service we offer.  Since the start of our relationship we’ve been able to pass on the value of the GlobalSign brand as well as the strong security its products offer,” says Thomas Vollrath, CEO, Webfusion.  “Our partnership has many co-marketing initiatives and development plans in place, with on-going industry leading improvements in certificate issuance workflows, as well as continued education to our customers about online security threats – leading to a customer experience both our companies can be proud of.”

“We are delighted that Webfusion has renewed its partnership with GlobalSign and this shows their clear commitment and confidence in our Partner Program and the services we currently offer”, said Paul Tourret, Managing Director, GlobalSign.  “The understanding of each other’s core business is a crucial factor in the success of our partnership and over the coming months we plan to bring exciting new security solutions to the masses through our partner channel.”

GlobalSign SSL Certificates are currently available from Webfusion at www.webfusion.co.uk, www.123-reg.co.uk, and www.donhost.co.uk.
