What are the benefits of using a code signing service for your program?

If you need to have a program you have developed code signed, you may think you need to have your own certificate to be able to do so.

In fact, if you use an Extended Validation online code signing service for your program, you do not need a certificate of your own. There are other major benefits to using one as well.

It eliminates the process of applying for your own certificate — If you go through the process of getting your own certificate so you can code sign your own programs, it can be tedious.

There are certain requirements your company has to follow, and specific steps you will have to take before your certificate can be approved. Using an Extended Validation online code signing service eliminates the need for all that, saving you time and money.

Extended Validation code signing online is cheap — The process of applying for your own certificate can be costly. That is why many companies choose to use an online code signing service instead, as the cost can be as low as $30 per executable or driver.

This means you would have to use the service many times before you would even come close to the cost of having your own certificate.

Your license will be more credible — As online code signing services have to follow extremely strict procedures in order to be able to offer Extended Validation code signing, this makes any license you get through them much more credible. As a result, it makes your program seem more credible as well. This can make your users trust you and trust your program even more.

Your certificate is more secure — The private key needs to be very secure in order for your program to be verified by any Internet browser it is recognized by.

As the key can be compromised, most good code signing services put that key on an external hardware token. This makes it impossible for it to be accessed by anyone or any system that has not been properly authorized. Thus making your private key even more secure.

The hashtag #givingtuesday has become a wave among social platforms and the results are absolutely stunning.

So if you have the means to help, be that time or money, we absolutely think, that you should participate and try to help on this charitable day. The movement is a great way to bring happiness back into the world.

Participating in Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to step away from the day to day in your life and find a cause that truly matters to you. It is, after all, a special day where you can truly make a difference.

We hope that this great movement will grow even bigger in the coming years and it can,  if all of us work together to give back on this special day.
