We’re happy to share today that Facebook is the newest Gold sponsor of Let’s Encrypt. Facebook has taken multiple important steps to support and advance encryption this year, and we are glad to see Let’s Encrypt as the latest example.

According to Alex Stamos, Chief Security Officer at Facebook, “Making it easier for websites to deploy HTTPS encryption is an important step in improving the security of the whole internet, and Facebook is proud to support this effort.”

Facebook’s sponsorship will help us produce a greater impact as we open up our public beta today and usher in more participants over the coming months.

If your company or organization would like to sponsor Let’s Encrypt, please email us at sponsor@letsencrypt.org.
