VeriSign Trust Network Signs Two New Affiliates

Mountain View, CA-based VeriSign Inc. expanded its global network of Affiliate Service Providers to include KPN, a telecommunications company in the Netherlands, and Certisur in Argentina.

The new affiliates join others across the U.S., Britain, France, Japan, South Africa and Taiwan, leveraging VeriSign's global infrastructure for delivering digital certificate solutions to businesses wishing to engage in secure e-commerce.

With the addition of these new affiliates, companies in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and the Netherlands can establish a trust services infrastructure based on VeriSign's digital certificate services and software, the company said.

VeriSign's Affiliate services serve the needs of major service providers with high-volume digital certificate issuance requirements, including large-scale regional or multi-national Certificate Authorities (CAs); Internet service providers or Web hosting companies; and other entities that operate Internet-based communities of interest (such as Web portals).
