SwissSign signs strategic partnership with BlueCerts to accelerate its international expansion

BlueCerts is pursuing its strategy to become the only platform in Europe that provides electronic certificates aggregating exclusively European Certifying Authorities. The signature of a partnership agreement with SwissSign, the first Swiss CA, reinforces the company’s offer and positioning for the benefit of customers seeking a credible technological alternative to the American and Chinese giants. 

Both companies strongly believe that Europe needs to regain its digital sovereignty. SwissSign and BlueCerts aim to contribute to the protection of data and the security of electronic transactions, anywhere in the world.

With its SSL certificate offering (https), messaging systems protection (S / MIME) and e-signature solutions, BlueCerts offers solutions tailored for the needs of organisations to protect data and digital identities.

SwissSign is a certified Swiss Made Software company. The company guarantees that all electronic certificates are issues in Switzerland.

«We are proud to have SwissSign as a strategic partner. The weak presence of European players in this strategically critical area is a cause for great concern. It is reasonable and wise to think carefully about our choices and to trust European technologies exclusively, whenever possible.

We should take the time to think about long-term strategic behavior and adopt a responsible attitude», says Jean-Marie Giraudon CEO of BlueCerts.

We are thrilled that with BlueCerts we have won a partner that shares our vision and values and supports SwissSign in its international development strategy», explains Markus Venetz, SwissSign Group’s Chief Commercial Officer.
