2 December 2020

By Maarten Bremer, Xolphin founder

Today marks a major milestone for Xolphin as we announce that we have been acquired by our long-standing partner and the world's leading Certificate Authority (CA), Sectigo. We have enjoyed a successful partnership with Sectigo for nearly 20 years. Together, we have made this strategic move to continue building on our two companies' many synergies. 

We want to assure you that Xolphin's commitment to our partners' and customers' success remains unchanged. Both Xolphin and Sectigo share a vision to drive innovation and provide proven solutions that protect businesses of all sizes from online threats, while continuously investing in a qualified team and a solid company culture.    

Since Xolphin was founded in 2002, we have issued more than a million certificates to more than 50,000 customers in Europe. We also have an active network of 3,000 resellers across Europe who rely on our expertise to quickly provide SSL certificates to secure website traffic, conduct vulnerability scanning, and manage digital signature products for email, code signing, and PDF signing. 

By combining our respective 18-year history of expertise and resources with Sectigo, we are well-positioned to strengthen our digital identity and web security offerings, build upon our successes and continue to exceed customer and partner expectations.   We would not be where we are today without our employees' unwavering dedication and the loyal support of our customers and partner network.
