What is Extended Validation?
EV is the most instant sign of security on the web today.
It gives the most rigorous authentication of your organization and website – and shows your customers that you’ve been through this process and received the EV stamp of approval.
An EV SSL certificate turns your visitors’ address bars green, so they can see in an instant they are secure. The green bar then toggles between the name of the Certificate Authority that issued your SSL certificate and the name of the organization that owns your website. Like this:
By toggling like this, EV also makes it practically impossible for phishers to hijack your site or your brand.
What will Extended Validation do for your business?
Most online shoppers prefer Extended Validation.
If you have EV and your competitors don’t, customers will be more likely to shop on your site. Why? With EV, your online customers and visitors will be greeted by the ‘green bar of trust’ – an instant sign that your business is genuine and your site is secure. This will enhance confidence in your site – and your business – and that extra confidence could increase your online sales.
EV will also protect your business from phishing attacks, because the information in the green address bar makes it practically impossible for phishers to hijack your site or your brand.
