Sectigo EV Code Signing is the best way to increase your software's Microsoft SmartScreen rating and reduce security warnings on installation
Modern antivirus programs and web filters often block software that's not signed by a trusted signing certificate. That means developers and publishers have no hope of succeeding without signing their software. But a standard code signing certificate may not be enough, especially for brand new companies. An Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing certificate from Sectigo can sign your software with a trusted digital signature, plus it provides a substantial reputation boost with the ubiquitous Microsoft SmartScreen filter. SmartScreen is notoriously finnicky, but by undergoing extended validation you can boost your reputation to a level that avoids those install-blocking warning messages. Extended Validation Code Signing certificates also take private key security to a new level by storing it physically on a secure external hardware token that can be kept offline, away from any attackers.
A Sectigo Extended Validation Code Signing certificate signs software using a 2048-bit RSA private key that is stored on a physical hardware token. This is the ultimate in code signing technology.
Peace of Mind
Signing your software with a Sectigo EV Code Signing certificate is the best way to put your customers' minds at ease. Your software will assert sufficient identity to satisfy antivirus programs and browser filters, leaving your users with the most direct path to downloading the software you've worked so hard on.
