We protect brands online. We manage more than 1.5 million corporate domain names, search the Internet for brand abuses and provide online security assets including SSL digital certificates and anti-phishing services. We help screen and clear trademarks in a global market.
Our company was founded in 1899 by two Delaware attorneys, Josiah Marvel and Christopher Ward, who saw an opportunity to simplify the way corporations were formed, operated, and maintained their compliance. Through the years, the dependability and inherent value of CSC's services helped establish Delaware as the legal home to thousands of major corporations.
Since then, CSC has expanded its offerings to include an impressive array of enterprise-specific solutions. Wherever there's a business challenge in the U.S. or around the world, there's a good chance we have a tool to overcome it. Our technology enables smoother transactions, smarter decisions, better compliance, improved collaboration, stronger intellectual property protection and faster transfer and management of corporate and legal data.
We've grown a lot over the years, but we've never lost sight of our founders' goals: to make business easier, more profitable and less risky, wherever it's done.
Right now, around the world, hundreds of thousands of companies are doing business better thanks to CSC.
