In the world of software development, there will always be a line between legitimate and untrusted software and that line is called code signing. Code signing dates back to the 1990s when Microsoft first released a object orientated version of Windows. Certified authorities such as COMODO, Microsoft and Thawte generate code signing certificates to individuals and organisiation. The problem is that these companies require indivuduals and organisations to verify their identity through a complex and tedious process requiring the presentation of phone bills, driver licenses, phone call verifications, proof of address and the list goes on. Furthermore, indivudual developers are especially disadvantaged as they cannot choose a custom alias to represent their software: the certificate must display their name. This can lead to privacy concerns, especially when your real name is displayed to all users of your applications.
VerifyMyApp is XetoWare's newest innovation, aiming to help individual developers and small businesses increase credibility to their software and apps by offering a cost-effective company code signing to their applications. VerifyMyApp skips identity verification and instead relies on application verification: scanning it against 60 antivirus and antispyware engines as well as testing it ourselves on real computers to evaulate the files and settings that your app creates, modifies or removes. This service will filter out untrustful software, increase the credibility of legitimate applications and present them as programs to other businesses, end users, software distribution websites and antivirus software.
