ChosenSecurity announced that it is issuing digital certificates for applications built on Adobe AIR software to ensure users that these innovative applications can be globally trusted and are safe to use.
Adobe AIR offers companies a new way to engage customers with branded, rich Internet applications outside of the browser without requiring changes to existing technology, people, or processes. AIR applications are built using proven Web technologies and can be deployed across all major operating systems.
Adobe AIR helps ensure safe installations by requiring digital signatures on each AIR application that identify the application and its creator before installation. According to Adobe, there have been more than 25 million installations of applications deployed on Adobe AIR in the first six months since its release.
ChosenSecurity thoroughly vets AIR developers globally and, once it is confident that they can be trusted, issues them digital certificates. Digitally signing AIR applications with a certificate issued by a recognized commercial certificate authority, such as ChosenSecurity, provides significant assurance to users that the application they are installing has not been accidentally or maliciously altered and identifies the signer (publisher). Adobe AIR displays the publisher name during installation when the AIR application has been signed with a trusted certificate. ChosenSecurity adds additional value by providing high-quality support for its certificates.
AIR application certificates are available to purchase for developers around the world beginning at $199.
