- An SSL Certificate is a digital credential that authenticates the
identity of a Web site and encrypts information via Secure Sockets
Layer (SSL) technology.
Created to establish online business identities, enable secure
connections and promote online consumer confidence, EV SSLs set a
higher standard for secure and successful online businesses. Like Turbo
SSL and High Assurance SSLs offered by GlobalWebFX.com, the new EV SSL
offers industry-leading 256-bit encryption technology. A thorough,
standardized verification process affords EV SSL owners an opportunity
to tout completion of the most stringent vetting process for SSL
encryption available today.
The EV SSL vetting process involves verifying the applying
organization's identity and typically requires a letter from a
representing attorney or accountant. While the new guidelines are
strict, GlobalWebFX.com EV SSL certificates can be issued within two to
four hours after all required documentation is received.
When users access sites encrypted with EV SSLs using Internet Explorer
7, the first browser to distinguish EV certificates, the site's secure
status is immediately evident. The browser's address bar reflects a
green background and the name of the organization to which the
certificate was issued, along with the familiar https:// prefix and
padlock icon. Other browsers currently handle EV SSLs like normal
certificates and are expected to distinguish them soon.
