Sectigo EV Code Signing Certificates
Note: In March 2024, Microsoft changed the way MS SmartScreen interacts with EV Code Signing certificates. EV Code Signing certificates remain the highest trust certificates available, but they no longer instantly remove SmartScreen warnings.
Product Summary

Publisher Identity Vetting

Sectigo Extended Validation Code Signing certificates are head and shoulders above standard signing certificates. In fact, only an EV Code Signing certificate can grant software developers an instant reputation boost with the Microsoft SmartScreen filter. Who made this? Has it been modified? Can I trust this? You answer with all the trust your users need when you affix your unique digital signature on your code. Your customers will immediately know who made it when Microsoft Windows shows them your verified publisher name.
Assurance & Authentication

EV Code Signing certificates are guaranteed to help your software pass any antivirus or browser filter’s smell test. By affixing your unique digital signature on your code, your customers will immediately know who made it and whether it’s been tampered with or comes as intended.
Security & Encryption

Sectigo EV Code Signing certificates affix 2048-bit digital signatures, which meet all industry and legal regulations for encryption strength.
