What is an EV SSL?

The Extended Validation (EV) SSL/TLS Digital Certificate

An Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate is a TLS/SSL certificate that verifies the certificate holder's authenticity and legitimacy through rigorous vetting and identity background checks. It ensures the highest level of trust by completing a 16-point check, confirming details such as website domain, owner, and legal, physical, and operational existence. EV certificates are crucial for high-profile brands, banks, and Fortune 500 companies, assuring website authenticity and security.

Why consider an EV SSL Certificate?

As phishing attempts seriously threaten legitimate online services, ensuring website authenticity is paramount. Phishers now exploit DV certificates, often obtained from free SSL services lacking robust phishing checks, to deceive users into divulging sensitive information. To counter this growing concern, verified identities online are imperative. EV SSL addresses this by prominently displaying the site operator's verified identity directly within the Certificate and Site Seal, giving visitors confidence in conducting secure online transactions.

Features of an EV SSL?

Secure Business, Verified Brand, Visitor Trust

EV Certificates include standard features that come with most products we sell. At the same time, you may choose additional benefits to increase your security and brand authenticity further.

Advanced Encryption and Signature Feature

Our SSL Certificates boast 256-bit encryption as standard, with Business Certificates offering additional features. These include large Private Keys in Root and Intermediate Certificates and larger signatures in leaf certificates, including 512 and 384-bit options. Additionally, they support ECC (Elliptical Curve Cryptography) keys for faster and enhanced security.

Enhanced Security through Key Duplication

Enhance security using different Private Keys when installing your Certificate across multiple servers and platforms. This practice ensures separation between services in the event of a breach. Several of our Business Certificates allow the issuance of duplicate Certificates using multiple CSRs and Private Keys.

Trust-Building Features

Business SSL certificates provide enhanced trust indicators to visitors, such as displaying the organisation's name in the SSL Certificate and Site Seal. These indicators confirm that a registered and legal entity operates the website, instilling confidence in visitors regarding its legitimacy.

Optimised Browser and Device Support

Ensuring maximum compatibility across major browsers and devices is crucial in today's dynamic encryption and online security landscape. Our SSL Certificates guarantee seamless visitor connectivity, offering robust platform security and peace of mind.

Unlimited Server Licensing

While installing a digital certificate on a single server is straightforward, the ability to install it on multiple servers is essential. This allows securing all services with one Certificate, resulting in significant time and cost savings.

Extended Warranty Protection

Business SSL certificates typically provide more robust warranties compared to domain-validated SSLs. They offer higher financial compensation in case of security breaches, ensuring enhanced protection for businesses and their customers.

Authenticity in your Business

Business Extended Validation Requirements

To acquire an EV (Extended Validation) Certificate, adherence to industry standards and verification of specific documents are essential prerequisites. If your organisation is well-established and visible online, you should find it a straightforward process.

Organisation Verification and Legal Standing

The Certificate Authority (CA) validates your organisation's legal entity status, cross-checking with the country's registration agency and scrutinizing blacklists and bankruptcy records to ensure your organisation is in good standing.

Authorized Personnel

You'll designate organisation contacts and approvers authorised to issue Certificates. These individuals undergo verification and approval to ensure their legitimacy.

Physical Presence

Your organisation must have an active presence at its registered address. Ensure your organisation's details are updated on online business directories like DUNS for verification.

Telephone Authentication

Verify an active telephone listing through an acceptable online business directory and phone call, displaying consistent business name and address information provided.

Agreement Signing

The designated organisation contact must sign the EV agreement before issuance of the Certificate.

Very happy with the service from SSLTrust! I had to organise a code signing certificate with a hardware token. Having somewhere local made the process much smoother for verification. Support is also very quick to answer which is a great change!
