Celebrate Mother's Day With Gifts Purchased From VeriSign Trusted Businesses

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (Marketwire) - VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure for the networked world, today announced that the new VeriSign Trust™ Seal is providing Mother's Day shoppers a way to find trusted web sites on the Internet. The VeriSign Trust Seal is a clear indicator that a web site has passed VeriSign's daily malware scan and rigorous authentication process, which helps promote a safer Internet by guiding consumers to sites that value and support online safety.

Merchants like BeautiCreams.com, Chef's Resource and Momma's Candy Store provide their customers with the assurance that comes by visiting sites displaying the VeriSign seal. By posting the VeriSign Trust Seal on their site, businesses also benefit from the Seal-in-Search™ feature, which allows enabled browsers and VeriSign partnered sites to instantly recognize trusted sites displaying the VeriSign Trusted Seal next to the search results. By leveraging the Internet's No. 1 trust mark, lesser-known sites establish consumer confidence and credibility, which can lead to increased conversions or sales.

"We are confident in the VeriSign Trust Seal and building trust with our customers is a top priority of ours," said Kandice Sullivan, owner of Momma's Candy Store. "We want customers to know that they can do business with us and have confidence in us. We proudly post the VeriSign Trust Seal on our web site."

"To better serve and protect our customers we rely on the VeriSign Trust Seal to monitor our site daily for malware," said Nancy Raby, chief executive officer of BeautiCreams.com. "The VeriSign Trust Seal helps assure our visitors that we are a company to be trusted."

"Chef's Resource takes security and trust very seriously," said Rick Smith, president of Chef's Resource. "This is why we deployed the VeriSign Trust Seal on our web site as part of our commitment to our customers."

"The VeriSign Trust Seal helps small businesses maximize traffic, sales and loyalty by showing customers they can buy, browse, and share with confidence," said Jai Saxena, director of product management at VeriSign. "When companies go the extra mile to provide a trusted online shopping experience, it is reflected in their bottom line."
