CASC creates a forum for the leading certificate authorities (CAs), which are responsible for the majority of all digital certificates issued, to discuss and develop industry standards and to present a single unified voice in the promotion of SSL and secure transactions and communications over the Internet. It also provides the public with a single resource to direct inquiries to and to contact for information and education.

"At GlobalSign, our mission is to restore trust in SSL through education, provide enhanced services that allow customers to identify and remedy vulnerabilities, and drive appropriate standards and best practices that protect organizations from advanced threats. These threats come in the form of cyber criminals and hackers as well as state-sponsored attacks and espionage efforts," said Steve Waite, CEO, GlobalSign Americas. "We are proud to be part of the CASC and collaborate with the leading global CAs on the goal of advancing security standards for the industry as a whole. Together we can work toward the improved deployment of a trustworthy SSL ecosystem."

In addition to supporting the CASC, GlobalSign is a member of other industry associations dedicated to advancing the strength of Internet security technologies such as SSL, including The Certification Authority/Browser (CA/B) Forum and the Anti-Phishing Working Group. GlobalSign is also an adopter member of the Trusted Computing Group.

"No one actor in the ecosystem has the ability to change the Internet as a whole, it takes collaboration," said Ryan Hurst, GlobalSign CTO, "GlobalSign wants to help all businesses to communicate and execute transactions across the Internet with confidence. By joining this association, we are furthering our commitment to this goal."
