The Certum Premium Extended Validation SSL/TLS (EV) Certificate offers the highest level of security, assurance and warranty of all three classes of certificates. It provides a secure, encrypted connection as well as the highest level of assurance to protect your brand and site users. It does this by including the Organization’s name and department on the SSL certificate as well as display’s site owner identity when the padlock is clicked on. EV certificates also display the organisation’s name in a special drop-down when the padlock in the address bar is clicked, immediately indicating the connection is secure and website or application is owned by a verified, actual organization. It is the highest safeguard against costly phishing and cloning incidents.
With EV SSL certificates, users do not need to know how to view the certificate’s details in a browser. They only need to click on the padlock to see who owns the website and be rest assured they’re on the authentic domain. This inspires the highest level of trust and makes site users feel safer interacting with your website or submitting data to it.
