Windows SmartScreen Reputation is a Microsoft tool that protects users from unknown programs. Based on the collected anonymous data from the community, it assigns a trustworthiness to the programs, which decides whether the SmartScreen is displayed when the program is installed. The EV certificate will solve this problem both for start-up applications and for more well-known applications with a lower level of reputation. More about Windows SmartScreen.

Certum EV CODE Sign
The Certum Cloud EV CODE Signing certificate is a universal CODE certificate that enables code signing at the station using the Simply Sign application. With the keys securely stored in the cloud, there is no need to have a physical token or smart card with the keys on your computer. It thus offers comfortable signing from anywhere with internet access.
File signing takes place when the SimplySign Desktop program is installed on the station (PC, Mac), which emulates the connection between a physical crypto card and a card reader with a certificate located in the cloud. Using the SimplySign mobile application, a 6-digit token is generated, which makes the certificate available for signing for about 2 hours. You can then sign unlimited files on the station, for example using the Microsoft SignTool application as you are used to. After expiration, it is necessary to enter a new token from the mobile phone (functionally, it is similar to the Google Authenticator application, for example). The SimplySign app and the SimplySign Desktop are available for free.

Extended Validated CODE certificate
EV Code Signing entails extensive vetting of the applicant
The Code EV certificate is intended for corporate customers only and is issued after thorough validation of the applicant. The certification authority verifies the existence of the company and the address, most often in the company register. If the company is less than 3 years old, it may request additional documents. It also requires verification of the person of the certificate applicant, who is validated by the authority by phone. At the same time, the existence of the company's telephone number is verified from a publicly accessible database. After verification of all the information, the certification authority performs validation by phone. First the administrative contact and finally the company contact. If everything is in order, the certificate is subsequently issued.
