API Features and Benefits

Code Signing Certificates allow your customers to verify that the code is authentic and has not been tampered with. DigiCert code signing protects your software against theft and malware.

When a piece of code is digitally signed, you can easily detect modified files. Additionally, code signed with a DigiCert timestamp tells a user that the code was signed with a valid certificate even after the actual code signing certificate expires.

Your partners and the channels that distribute your software expect you to safeguard their valuable customers' data. Signing software shows commitment to their safety and is often a contractual requirement.

Your customers expect a smooth and professional installation process when they download your software. Digitally signed programs that avoid warning messages help keep your users safe and protects your brand.
