The Mozy 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 Mozy and verified by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).

Mozy is backed by EMC Corporation, a Fortune 500 company. We're headquartered in Seattle, Washington with offices in Pleasant Grove, Utah; London, England; Cork, Ireland; Shanghai, China; and Montreal, Canada.
Mozy recently successfully completed a SAS 70 Type II audit and received ISO 27001 certification. The number of online backup service providers that have completed both the SAS 70 type II audit and the ISO 27001 certification is extremely limited. Simply taking the steps to obtain these verifications puts Mozy in exclusive company. These independent verifications certify that Mozy’s processes and procedures meet or exceed the strictest control objectives in the industry.”
