GlobalSign honored as gold winner in Info Security Product’s Guide 12th Annual Global Excellence Awards

GlobalSign’s Active Directory integration solution (Auto Enrollment Gateway-AEG) named a gold winner of the 2016 Global Excellence Awards

Integrating GlobalSign’s hosted Certificate services with Active Directory, GlobalSign’s Auto Enrollment Gateway (AEG) recognized as Most Innovative Security Software Product

GMO GlobalSign (, a leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Everything (IoE), announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named GlobalSign’s Active Directory integration solution (Auto Enrollment Gateway-AEG) a gold winner of the 2016 Global Excellence Awards® in the Most Innovative Security Software category. AEG enables organizations to integrate Active Directory to GlobalSign’s hosted Certificate services to provision and manage digital certificates for web and server security, user and device authentication, email encryption and secure document signing.

The security industry celebrated its 12th Annual 2016 Global Excellence Awards in San Francisco by honoring excellence in every facet of the industry including products, people behind the successes and best companies.

“We are proud of this industry recognition for AEG,” said Lila Kee, Chief Product Officer, GlobalSign. “This awards validates GlobalSign as a trusted CA whose focus is on providing easy and efficient ways to deploy certificates, while reducing risk and cost associated with managing them throughout their lifecycle.”

Running an internal digital Certificate service, like Microsoft CA, is both resource intensive and costly. GlobalSign’s AEG greatly reduces these burdens and provides significant efficiencies. AEG functions as a proxy between GlobalSign’s WebTrust-audited SaaS-based CA and an organization’s Active Directory environment. With AEG, organizations can seamlessly automate the enrollment, provisioning, and management of digital certificates, but with a lower total cost of ownership for public key infrastructure (PKI), and reduced risk of expensive business interruptions due to system outages of key management failures.

More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2016 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 29, 2016 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.
