London, UK (Gawkwire.com) GlobalSign Ltd (www.globalsign.co.uk), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Certificate security, today announced that the BT online shop, dabs.com, and moonpig.com are the latest major brands to adopt GlobalSign Extended Validation (EV) SSL technology to secure their ecommerce web sites. EV SSL represents the most significant advancement in how consumers identify a secure site since the inception of SSL over 10 years ago. It activates the browser’s green address bar and prominently displays advanced security and identity information.
EV SSL Certificates are issued by publicly trusted Certification Authorities under much stricter guidelines than standard SSL. By deploying EV SSL online retailers can build higher levels of trust and confidence among consumers. EV SSL activates the green address bar in high security browsers such as IE7, Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari. As well as turning the address bar green, web sites using EV SSL feature the standard SSL “padlock” and identify the organisation behind the website by displaying the company name. These visual indicators provide a clear business differentiator for online companies taking preventative action against today’s relentless phishing attacks. The adoption of EV SSL shows consumers that the retailer is firm in their commitment to online security.
“We congratulate BT Shop, dabs.com and moonpig.com on their adoption of EV SSL security,” said Paul Tourret, Managing Director, GlobalSign. “We are pleased to see a growing number of household names illustrate their commitment to using this trust enabling technology by upgrading to EV SSL and we’re happy to be able to help such committed companies lead the way in protecting their brands online.”
Recently awarded with the new WebTrust for EV accreditation, GlobalSign is highly focused on providing organisations with the strongest SSL security in the market. By offering a simplified, competitively priced, feature packed range of SSL, with free inclusion of Server Gated Cryptography (strong security), and promotional 3 for 1 server licensing, GlobalSign makes the strongest levels of SSL accessible to all online retailers, from small and medium enterprises to large household brands. Organisations with existing non-EV SSL Certificates can easily upgrade to GlobalSign’s EV SSL and benefit from multi-year savings and promotional pricing.
