Portsmouth, NH – GlobalSign (, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL security, has announced the availability of free, 45 day SSL test certificates which will offer customers the ability to experience GlobalSign’s range of SSL certificates before they buy. GlobalSign is the only Professional Level SSL supplier in the market that currently offers fully functioning test certificates.

The new service enables existing and first time customers, or customers switching from other SSL providers, to evaluate the GlobalSign SSL Certificate feature set and service. The test provides a range of benefits to customers, for example, the ability to:

• test for themselves the widely trusted GlobalSign Root CA certificate in their own browsers, Operating Systems and applications

• experience GlobalSign’s next-generation automated certificate validation and issuance process and to test the certificate profile used within GlobalSign certificates

• trial the innovative options based enrolment system pioneered by GlobalSign to allow customers to test wildcard SSL and the use of Subject Alternative Names (SANs)

• implement and test SSL security within internal staging or test environments in preparation for their upcoming production releases

• experience the expert technical support services available by default to all certificate holders

"We are proud to be the first professional level SSL supplier in the marketplace to offer this innovative ‘test-drive’ service," said Steve Waite, Marketing Director, GlobalSign. "When comparing to other SSL Providers, we have massively simplified the certificate buying process and have introduced the industry’s first means of tailoring a SSL Certificate with a range of essential options. By offering test certificates we are happy to let customers experience the ‘GlobalSign difference’ free of charge, and at the same time allowing potential customers to become familiar with our exemplary customer service."

DomainSSL test certificates, issued from the highly trusted GlobalSign root certificate, are a fully functioning 45 day version of the DomainSSL product. OrganizationSSL test certificates are issued from a test root and will allow the customers to examine and test the certificate profile within test environments without the need to go through the usual vetting processes.
