In times of high competition on the software market, maximizing the success of software development means the necessity of offering it also outside the standard website. Current marketing models require distribution via multiple channels – e.g. external download sites, resellers, mirror servers, partners, etc.

Here comes digital code signing with the help of the Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA) Code Signing SSL certificate. This certificate will allow you to effectively protect the brand and ensure that your customers, all over the world, that the software they download is authentic and unmodified by third parties.
