The main purpose of the digital certificate is to ensure that the application belongs to the entity to which the certificate was issued. The ActivePath Ltd. digital certificate does not guarantee that a signed application is safe to run, but rather informs the user that the software was digitally signed by ActivePath Ltd. and verified by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).
About (from ActivePath Ltd. at www.activepath.com)
“ActivePath began under the name PostalGuard in 2007 with the goal of providing financial institutions a way to securely communicate with their customers via email. But the more we learned about our customers’ direct marketing needs, the more we began to realize that these priorities are shared by all web sites and marketers, regardless of the nature of their business. We knew then that it was time to expand our product plans.”
