What is an EV SSL certificate?
An EV SSL certificate offers the highest available levels of trust and authentication to your website.
The green address bar prominently displays your company name and provides highly visual assurance to customers that your site is secure – immediately giving them the confidence to complete their transaction.
E-commerce merchants are going beyond the gold padlock to go green with Extended Validation SSL Certificates, the e-commerce standard for trust and security. The EVcertificate was designed to strengthen e-commerce security and combat phishing attacks to make EV SSL the most complete SSL certificate available. Visual assurance helps e-commerce merchants increase trust, reduce shopping cart abandonment, and build long-term revenue.
Obtaining an Extended Validation SSL Certificate requires full organization validation which ensures the green address bar is associated with only the most trusted companies.
