Note: Starting in May 2023, new industry requirements from the CA/B Forum require that all code signing certificate keys are stored on an HSM or compliant hardware token. As part of implementing these changes, Sectigo has increased code signing certificate prices. (As always, we’re helping you save money by offering a discount off retail prices.) If you have any questions about the new code signing requirements, our support team is happy to help!
