The main purpose of the digital certificate is to ensure that the application belongs to the entity to which the certificate was issued. The Adobe Systems 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 Adobe Systems and verified by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).

The Company offers a line of business and mobile software and services used by professionals, designers, knowledge workers, high-end consumers, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners, developers and enterprises for creating, managing, delivering and engaging with compelling content and experiences across multiple operating systems, devices and media.
