The most important benefit offered by the DigiCert EV code signing certificate is that it instantly builds trust with Microsoft’s SmartScreen® Application Reputation filter. Microsoft SmartScreen warnings are one of the most frustrating problems software publishers have to deal with—it’s a big, scary warning that effectively kills software installs. SmartScreen is notoriously sensitive, often flagging new software packages as dangerous simply because Microsoft doesn’t have enough data on the file or publisher yet. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution: DigiCert EV code signing.
The DigiCert Code Signing Certificate is supported by most major platforms. It enables you to sign any code across multiple platforms.
- Microsoft Authenticode®
- Microsoft Office & Microsoft VBA
- Adobe® AIR®
- Apple's Mac OS
- Mozilla® Objects
