Thawte was the first non-US SSL certificate issuer to provide SSL certificates to public entities. In a very short time, Thawte gained 40% of the market. In 2000, Thawte was acquired by Symantec, thus becoming a key member of Symantec’s trusted brands. Since 1995, Thawte has issued more than 945,000 SSL certificates and digital code signing certificates, protecting identities and transactions in more than 240 countries. Thawte also offers multilingual support available 24/7 via phone, chat and email. All Thawte SSL certificates come with a dynamic seal that you can place on your website, informing potential customers that their data is protected at the highest level. Thawte SSL certificates are not the cheapest, but the protection of web resources should be at the highest level, and this is what the SSL certificates signed by Thawte guarantee.
