FPT Securities Joint Stock Company Chooses GlobalSign's Extended Validation SSL to Maintain the Highest Level of Online Security

Major Vietnamese securities firm adopts the latest SSL security to enhance user trust and confidence in their online business

Singapore – September 05, 2011 - GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com.sg), a GMO CLOUD subsidiary and the Singapore arm of the digital certificate security specialist, today announced that FPT Securities Joint Stock Company has implemented GlobalSign's Extended Validation (EV) SSL technology through its Vietnam territory partner, V-SIGN (Vietnam Digital Signature Authentication Corporation) http://www.vsign.com.vn, to secure their online business and add an essential level of trust for online users wishing to carry out electronic transactions.

FPT Securities is a major securities company in Vietnam under the umbrella of the FPT Group, one of Vietnam's largest IT companies, with the business lines of securities brokerage. Among more than 100 securities firms in Vietnam, its trading value ranks 2nd on the Hanoi Stock Exchange and ranks 5th on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange. FPT Securities has been aggressively utilizing technology with the online trading of FPT Group, which 90 percent of its customers use today.

This is a testimony of the growing demand for the highest level of SSL security available within the Vietnamese market, especially after nearly 200 websites with the domain names ".vn", ".com" and ".net" on the same server were attacked on July 3rd, 2011. Government agencies are now recognizing the need to secure websites, online transactions, webmail and other next generation services, to protect themselves and their website users in the face of ever-increasing online security threats.

FTP Securities has adopted the latest type of SSL technology to secure its customer-facing websites. Extended Validation (EV) SSL triggers the "green address bar" in the latest browsers and gives companies a means of visibly showing website visitors they are a truly authentic organization, operating a legitimate website and employing the strongest encryption levels - a clear business differentiator for today's online organizations.

In addition to turning the address bar green, websites using EV SSL feature the standard SSL "padlock", as well as displaying advanced security and identity information, including the organization name behind the website and the issuing SSL Certification Authority. These additional features provide visitors with visual reassurance that the site they are visiting is legitimate and that their personal information is fully secure - a clear business differentiator for online companies taking preventative action against today's relentless phishing attacks. The adoption of EV SSL by FTP Securities clearly shows their customers a strong on-going commitment to online safety and security.
