The new features, including VeriSign® Seal-in-Search™ technology and daily web site malware scans, enable web site operators to deliver a trusted experience for online users from beginning to end, all while leveraging the VeriSign seal, the most recognized trust mark on the Internet.
"In the face of increasingly elaborate attacks and fraud schemes, web sites need solutions that do more than data encryption," said Tim Callan, vice president of product marketing at VeriSign. "By enhancing our SSL Certificate services with new features that instill trust at every step of the online experience -- at no additional charge to our customers -- we're delivering a more robust and value-driven solution. In the process, we're redefining what web sites should expect from online security."
Chris Christiansen, program vice president for security products and services at IDC, said, "Companies rely heavily on the trust they are able to develop with customers, especially when it comes to the security of their transactions, interactions, and personal data. With the VeriSign Trust™ Seal, people will have more confidence that they will be protected from phishing attacks or receiving malware because they will be going to a legitimate web site when clicking on the site's link."
By combining the new enhancements with the existing strengths of VeriSign SSL Certificates in a single solution, VeriSign enables Internet users to:
"Every time a consumer selects a search engine result or clicks on a link to visit our store, they've made a decision that largely hinges on trust," said Hadleigh Reid, founder of BillTiger.com. "As a company that competes for business online, we have to do everything we can to demonstrate that we deserve the trust that consumer has placed in us, in our brand, and in our site. VeriSign's exciting new enhancements to its SSL services helps us earn and keep that trust, and it sets VeriSign apart from the pack by delivering far more value for the same price."
