Host NewsPortsmouth, NH – GlobalSign Inc, a specialist in digital certificate security, announced today that they will be offering a year end promotion for their newly released Adobe AIR Code Signing Certificates.

Adobe AIR developers can visit for a chance to win a free ObjectSign Code Signing Certificate for use with Adobe AIR. Ten winners will be selected at random on November 30th and an additional ten winners will be selected at random on December 31st of 2008. In addition to the twenty free Certificates that will be given away, developers that have immediate needs or require multiple Certificates will be able to purchase Certificates valid of up to one year for 43% off the standard retail price.

This promotion will provide developers another option in a market that is dominated by a few select providers. This year end promotion will further allow developers to enjoy the benefits of signing their code by reducing the barriers to entry, such as high costs, that the alternatives in the market currently present.

“GlobalSign is delighted to offer this extraordinary opportunity to obtain either free or deeply discounted Code Signing Digital IDs for Adobe AIR,” Said Lila Kee, Director of Business Development, GlobalSign, Inc. “We anticipate the AIR developer community will react positively to this promotion as a low risk method to observe how enhanced trusted communication can translate to increases in downloadable software.”

Applications developed for Adobe AIR can be digitally signed and secured by GlobalSign Code Signing Certificates. Code Signing Certificates for Adobe AIR allow developers to deploy the virtual equivalent of “shrink-wrap” to their applications, resulting in tamperproof applications and greatly enhanced assurances of application authenticity.

Developers of AIR applications are vetted by GlobalSign and are then issued a Code Signing Certificate that makes the application tamperproof and binds their identity to the digitally signed AIR application. Adobe AIR only allows users to run applications that have been digitally signed. The digital signature also allows users to identify which developer signed the application and when, providing assurances that the application is legitimate. End users are more likely to install applications from developers they trust.
