EV is an Investment, Not an Expense
CareSSL, understands that a Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate might be seen as an expense, but it’s not! An EV SSL Certificate is not just an expense, instead it’s an investment into both your business and online presence. This investment in your business and online presence is driven by trust. There’s even scientific research to back up the idea that Premium EV SSL certs are more trusted…
Georgia Tech Research Finds That EV = Safer Websites
Georgia Tech’s Cyber Forensics Innovation (CyFI) Lab studied 2.6 million domains connected to EV SSL certificates, which showed that EV SSL certs are “99.99% more likely to be unassociated with bad cyber actors.” It’s long been known in the cybersecurity community that most phishing-related cybercrimes are associated with SSL certs that need a lower level of validation to obtain. These findings support the value of EV SSL certificates.
This is another reason why users trust websites that use Premium EV SSL certificates more than any other SSL cert validation level.
Is EV for Me?
As we covered, having a Premium EV SSL Certificate doesn’t just secure your website, but having one also has a huge difference on your online presence. The only challenge that you might discover is with regards to the validation required for the Premium EV SSL Certificate. The validation required to get an EV SSL Certificate is not difficult for registered businesses, instead it’s meant to stop shady characters from applying for an EV SSL cert under a fake company name or business. For those interested in the validation process, our team has briefly covered the process for you below:
1. Business Registration – To obtain an EV SSL Certificate you must be a registered business with your government.
2. Operation Existence – The Certificate Authority (CA) will need to verify that your organization has been operating at your registered offices/location.
3. Address Authentication - The organization must have both a physical and business presence in the country.
4. Telephone Verification – Finally, the CA will need to conduct a telephone call using a public telephone number for the organization. This number is most commonly pulled from a Dun and Bradstreet listing and/or a YellowPages listing.
