E-Government

e-commerce monitoring gmbh is granted the right to issue e-government signatures by the Republic of Austria. E-government signatures are used by Austrian public authorities in all correspondence. Together with a number of powerful development partners, we were able to achieve a market share of about 50% of all signatures in this segment within a short period of time.

2022

Qualified cloud signature

e-commerce monitoring gmbh will launch TRUST2GO®, a cloud-based qualified signature service. This service works independent of location and device. Already at the present time (9/2021) we have pre-orders for about 15,000 certificates, primarily from companies in the DACH region that are globally active. Starting with Apple’s registration, we will also be active in the SSL/TLS sector in the DACH region. Preliminary talks are underway with numerous Austrian and German providers to integrate our server certificates into their product range. For Austria alone, we were able to establish that around 50,000 web services are still being operated without suitable certificates.
