Code Signing Certificates

Secure Delivery of Code and Content

Easy online distribution has made it possible for developers to create fun and functional code, anywhere and everywhere. However, the potential for fraud and the spread of malicious code has increased as well. With a Thawte® Code Signing Certificate, your code will be as safe and trustworthy to customers as shrink-wrapped software from a store shelf.
