The following is commentary by Kevin Johnson, Channel Manager for The SSL Store™, about becoming a member of the i2Coalition.
The SSL Store™ is the largest provider of SSL certificates in the world and the first Web Security Specialist Partner of Symantec. We take the utmost pride in offering SSL certificates and other web security solutions from some of the most reputable names in the industry like Symantec, Thawte, GeoTrust, RapidSSL, Certum, and Comodo. We consider ourselves more than simply a provider – we’re a premium service – with more than 50 team members dedicated solely to SSL and web security solutions.
As a leader in the web hosting industry, joining forces with the i2Coalition was a no-brainer. The i2Coalition’s noble goals of representing the interests of the web community on Capitol Hill, educating legislators about the complexities of the internet, developing and refining best practices among members, informing the media about the industry, and fostering a true sense of community within our shared profession are all ideals that we share and support whole-heartedly.
With every day that passes, the internet becomes more and more entrenched in the fabric of our fast-moving, interconnected society. We believe this makes the need for a unified internet voice as important as ever, and we applaud the i2Coalition for leading the charge. We’re beyond excited to join the 69 companies that currently make up i2Coalition, which include pioneers in web hosting, data centers, software delivery, registrars, cloud computing services, and more.
We look forward to working with all of the members of the i2Coalition in forming a more unified and structured online community.
