An Extended Validation SSL Certificates (EV SSL) is considered the highest class of SSL available by incorporating some of the highest standards in identity assurance to establish the legitimacy of online business entities.
Benefits of obtaining an EV SSL Certificate for your business entity’s website are:
- Activate both the padlock and the green address bar in all major browsers;
- Provide the strongest encryption level available;
- Enable the organization behind a website to present its own verified identity to website visitors;
- Offer a stronger guarantee that the owner of the website passed a thorough, and globally standardized, identity verification process defined within the EV guidelines.
The Extended Validation identity verification process requires the applicant to prove exclusive rights to use a domain, confirm its legal, operational and physical existence, and prove the entity has authorized the issuance of the Certificate.
