Purchase publicly trusted Vp Email Certificate to realize the email signature and encryption

1. The current situation and problems of email certificate application

There are many CAs around the world selling publicly trusted S/MIME email certificates, and many email client software support S/MIME email certificate signature and encryption, but why have not email signature and encryption been popularized for so many years? Because the whole process is too complicated, the certificate application and the certificate use are completed by two different manufacturers, and each is only responsible for its own part, which cannot be seamlessly connected to improve the user experience.

Although MeSign Technology has realized the automatic configuration of email certificates, thereby realizing S/MIME automatic email signature and encryption, greatly reducing the threshold for using email encryption and greatly improving the user experience. But the automatic configured email certificates is not a publicly trusted certificate, which causes other email clients prompt untrusted warnings when MeSign APP users to send the signed email to other email client users to exchange public key, making MeSign APP users and other email client users realize S/MIME encryption still does not feel smooth. This is one of the existing problems.

The second problem is that it is very cumbersome for users to apply for email certificates from CA. After getting the certificate, it is very troublesome to import them into various email client software for use, configure the email certificates, and exchange public key with our users etc. This is the most important reason why S/MIME email encryption cannot be widely used.

MeSign Technology solves problem two, but it brings problem one. Now MeSign Technology cooperates with the world's leading CA - Sectigo to automatically provide users with publicly trusted S/MIME email certificate, completely solving certificate automatic configuration, automatic encryption and publicly trusted problems, this is a perfect S/MIME email encryption solution.
