GlobalSign's Partner Program Opens Up New Revenue Streams

Program presents significant financial opportunities to companies of all types and sizes

July 18, 2008; 12:50 AM


Portsmouth, NH – 16th July 2008 – GlobalSign (, the SSL Certificate secure server specialist, has today revealed the significant revenue opportunities for partners who expand their core business lines with GlobalSign security products. Companies such as Web Hosts, ISPs, Domain Registrars and VARs have the perfect opportunity to gain additional revenue from their customer base by reselling SSL Certificates - a fundamental requirement for sites conducting online commerce or capturing customer data.


Since launching the SSL Partner Program last year, GlobalSign has seen a continuous rise in the number of new partners joining. Offering the most highly featured SSL product with extensive technical, marketing and sales resources, makes GlobalSign’s SSL reseller program one of the most advanced SSL reseller programs currently available.


To be a successful reseller, there must be demand for the product and the partner must be able to easily sell it.GlobalSign’s feature packed and simplified SSL product range easily meets these requirements. For example, unlike competing SSL products, all GlobalSign SSL Certificates come with enhanced SGC security (provided free of charge) to ensure minimal encryption strengths of at least 128 bit and up to 256 bit. GlobalSign SSL products are also neatly arranged into three groups, categorized by the differing vetting processes – domain validation, organisation validation and extended validation (also known as EV SSL). This user-friendly grouping makes GlobalSign SSL easy to understand, and more importantly, easy to sell.


High margins are needed for the partner to generate high profits. GlobalSign offers high dollar revenue per SSL Certificate sold Pay As You Go partners make between $50-$100 per Certificate sold. Even higher margins are available on bulk purchase plans - starting at only 5 Certificates.


“We do not just offer exceptional margins for such a high value product,” said Steve Waite, Marketing Director, GlobalSign, “We also offer easy integration and all the business campaign resources to make sure partners have the fastest market launch and ROI possible. We make sure minimal time and effort is needed to add SSL to their portfolios and we recommend companies of all sizes speak to us today about how we can help them leverage the SSL revenue opportunity.”
