The Certum Trusted SSL/TLS Certificate is a mid-level Organisation Validated (OV) SSL certificate which provides a secure, encrypted connection as well as some assurance to protect your brand and site users. It does this by including the Organization’s name and department on the SSL certificate.
This way users can click through to view the certificate details to be sure the website or web application is owned and operated by a real business or organisation. This inspires trust and makes site users feel safer interacting with your website or submitting data to it.
Organization Validation Certificates are intended for use on websites, applications and servers which are owned and operated by registered businesses and organisations. It is ideal for websites with low to moderate risk of criminal attention (phishing or cloning attacks, for example).
In addition to verifying domain control, you will need to meet a few other requirements to show the organisation is a real, registered legal entity before the certificate is issued with the Organisation’s name hard coded into it. The OV certificate is a favourite among small businesses and companies who need to protect their brand, assure their customers and also meet stringent industry compliance requirements. The financial services and PCI compliance requirements for example.
The Certum Trusted SSL/TLS (OV) certificate comes in three variants;
- Single domain (yourwebsite.ng).
- Multi-domain (yourwebsite.ng, yourwebsite.com, theirwebsite.org, subdomain.otherwebsite.com.ng).
- Wildcard (*.yourwebsite.ng). This covers the primary domain (such as yourwebsite.ng) and all first-level subdomains like portal.yourwebsite.ng, mail.yourwebsite.ng, webdisk.yourwebsite.ng, etc.
