BENEFITS OF DIGICERT EV CODE SIGNING CERTIFICATES.
You’ll get a USB stick with an encrypted token containing the private key after you have your certificate. Furthermore, only people who have physical access to the device can sign, ensuring greater security and authenticity.
Microsoft Defender SmartScreen:
Gain trusted status on the Microsoft Defender SmartScreen Reputation filter automatically, minimizing warnings and enhancing brand reputation and end-user confidence.
With timestamp, your signature will remain valid even after the EV code signing certificate that was used has expired. Hence, your signature will expire without a timestamp when the certificate expires, hence prompting you to re-sign it.
Universal platform compatibility:
To sign code for a different platform, you don’t need to reissue.
