Entrust provides better ROI for EV SSL certificates, enables trust in
online security for less
DALLAS, June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Extended Validation (EV) SSL
certificates offer the highest level of assurance for Web security, providing
end-users with a green address bar to emphasize trust. Now, Entrust, Inc.,
(Nasdaq: ENTU) is offering EV SSL certificates for the same low price of
regular Entrust SSL certificates.
"EV SSL certificates are no longer an expensive premium for Web security;
they are a necessary tool to help thwart phishing, man-in-the-middle and other
malicious fraud attacks," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "We
believe our customers deserve the ultimate in online trust and we're dedicated
to providing that at a lower cost."
Entrust EV SSL Certificates now start at as low as $199 per year. This is
a significant savings over traditional sources of extended validation SSL
Traditionally, consumers had to look for a small gold padlock symbol to
ensure their session was secure and trusted. Today, when consumers access an
EV-enabled Web site, it is easy for them to know if it's secure and protected
by advanced SSL encryption. Safe, trusted sites trigger the address bar to
turn green, and information about the company operating the site and the
certification authority (CA) that issued the digital SSL certificate is
displayed. Entrust EV SSL certificates are also recognized by older browser
versions that are not EV SSL-aware.
Extended Validation refers to rigorous, industry-standard validation
methods now used by CAs before issuing an SSL certificate. Conceived in
response to the growing threats of phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks,
Extended Validation SSL certificate standards were established by the
CA/Browser Forum. Most Web browsers -- Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8,
Mozilla's Firefox 3, Apple Safari 4 and Opera 9.5-10, for example -- enable
this higher level of identity assurance with prominent trust indicators.
Entrust Extended Validation SSL Server Certificates are available for
purchase through Entrust's Certificate Services Web site at www.entrust.net.
