Traditionally, code signing has served as the initial step in keeping personal computer systems secure, but unfortunately that method of signing code is not sufficient anymore. The Certificate Authority industry has come up with a solution—Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing. Now available from Symantec, EV Code Signing offers a more secure process of signing code, allows for greater confidence in the integrity of your application, and provides a more frictionless experience for users downloading your application. Learn how EV Code Signing works, why it is more secure, and how it can help you protect your business and your customers.
Attendees will learn:
- What Extended Validation means in the context of code signing
- Why Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing certificates are more secure than traditional code signing certificates
- How Windows 8 and other next-generation systems can treat applications signed with an EV Code Signing certificate differently
- The importance of reputation for your applications now and into the future
