Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates are the highest assurance certificate, perfect for reassuring your visitors. The green address bar, exclusive to EV SSL, provides visual assurance to visitors that the site is verified and secured.
E-commerce merchants are going beyond the gold padlock to go green with Extended Validation SSL certificates, the e-commerce standard for trust and security. The green browser address bar, exclusive to EV SSL certificates, assures website visitors that they are transacting on a highly trusted and secured domain. The EV SSL certificate was designed to strengthen e-commerce security and combat phishing attacks to make EV SSL the most complete SSL certificate available. Visual assurance helps e-commerce merchants increase trust, reduce shopping cart abandonment, and build long-term revenue.
Obtaining an Extended Validation SSL certificate requires a rigorous validation performed by Comodo, a registered Certificate Authority (CA). This is required to ensure that the company behind the site meets Extended Validation standard. These strict validation guidelines help keep the green address bar associated with only trusted organizations to maintain the highest level of security and trust with visitors.
Comodo also has Extended Validation certificates to secure multiple unique domains.
