Pursuant to DigiCert’s acquiring Verizon Enterprise SSL business, DigiCert and Cybertrust Japan to provide digital certificates to Japan and Southeast Asia

LEHI, UT (July 7, 2015) — DigiCert, a global Certificate Authority and leader of trusted identity solutions, has partnered with Cybertrust Japan, a leading Japanese comprehensive security certification service provider, to market DigiCert SSL, code signing and other digital certificates throughout the land of the rising sun and into Southeast Asia.

Working together, DigiCert and Cybertrust Japan aim to be the largest provider of digital certificates in the region within the next five years. Globally, DigiCert is the world’s second-largest provider of high-assurance SSL certificates after its recent acquisition of the Verizon Enterprise SSL business. Cybertrust Japan has offered online trust and security certification services for 20 years and has earned a high level of trust from customers in Japan.

Under this new partnership, DigiCert and Cybertrust Japan also announce Cyber Secure Asia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cybertrust Japan, which will market DigiCert’s certificate technology to Southeast Asia from a regional headquarters in Singapore. Cyber Secure Asia will also provide DigiCert certificates to Malaysia, with future plans to expand into other Southeast Asian markets, such as Indonesia and the Philippines.

"DigiCert is excited to partner with Cybertrust Japan to accelerate our growth in Asia," said DigiCert CEO Nicholas Hales. "We’re confident that existing Cybertrust Japan customers and prospective customers will benefit tremendously from our customer focus and innovation in providing leading certificate management solutions for the enterprise."

In addition to marketing DigiCert’s SSL and code signing certificates online, Cybertrust Japan will introduce its customers to DigiCert’s leading certificate management tools such as Certificate Inspector™, Express Install™ and other components of the company’s new CertCentral™ certificate management platform.

Combining industry-leading customer service experience with intuitive certificate monitoring and management tools, DigiCert PKI solutions help enterprises optimize SSL certificate management and secure the Internet of Things. As a result, DigiCert continues to attract the business of the world's leading brands, including six of the global Alexa Top 10.

"In this historic year, we’ve entered into a strategic business partnership agreement with DigiCert to provide digital authentication services.
