In order to have Microsoft’s SmartScreen saying your company name, you need to buy a EV certificate:
It costs around 300 euros a year.
There are several providers for this. Globalsign is just one. Then you will receive a usb dongle with your certificate (GlobalSign sends a USB dongle).
When you have it, you need to configure it. The provider tells you what to do.
After that you need to invoke a command like this:
signtool.exe sign /a /tr http://rfc3161timestamp.globalsign.com/advanced /td SHA256 EXE_TO_SIGN
