Windows Defender SmartScreen

Don’t let Windows Defender SmartScreen Kill Your Downloads

Microsoft SmartScreen is an internet security feature in Windows 8 and later, Microsoft Edge, and Outlook that automatically blocks software files that aren’t on a pre-trusted list. That means that new software releases and/or releases from small software publishers often get blocked, simply because Microsoft hasn’t seen them enough times to add them to the pre-trusted list. Signing your software files with an EV code signing certificate gives you instant SmartScreen trust so users won’t see the SmartScreen popup warning.

Powerful, Automated Code Signing Security
Integrated Into Your Cl/CD Process

Code signing is a critical part of securely delivering software. But code signing is easier said than done when you have dozens or even thousands of developers. And it only takes one mistake and hackers will be signing and distributing malware under your name. DigiCert Software Trust Manager helps your company avoid the pain and cost of a compromised key or unauthorized release.

David Nalley

David NalleyVice President, Infrastructure

Apache

“We have 6,000-plus developers on six continents. Trying to secure all the keys that they need (for code signing) would be a nightmare. With DigiCert Software Trust Manager, the keys remain in the cloud, and access is provided to sign with them, but not to get the actual keys themselves. That is a huge win for us.”

Automated Code Signing Security

Hardware
Secured Keys

Each of your private keys is automatically protected on a hardware security module—so they can’t be stolen or accidentally uploaded to a GitHub repo.

Enforced
Signing Policies

Maintain full control over who can sign code, and when by delegating privileges to authorized developers during scheduled release windows.

Track
Every Signature

You’ll know every piece of code that’s been signed with your keys (and who signed it), thanks to detailed, permanent signing logs.

Automated
Code Signing

You don’t need to change what you’re already doing. Integrate code signing into your Cl/CD and DevOps flows using APIs and/or integrations.
