A. How Does Secure Email – Digitally Sign & Encrypt Emails Work
GlobalSign PersonalSign Certificates use S/MIME technology to allow users to digitally sign and encrypt email.
Digitally signing an email proves authorship and prevents tampering, assuring the email recipient that the email came from you, not an imposter, and that the content of the email has not been altered in transit.
Encrypting email ensures message privacy and keeps sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.
Secure Email is achieved using GlobalSign’s Digital Certificate solution called PersonalSign. PersonalSign Certificates are cryptographic signing certificates that bind your verified, physical identity to the certificate so recipients of email messages can verify that the email actually came from you.
