As you may already know, VeriSign Authentication Services became part of Symantec in August of 2010. Since then, we’ve continued to invest in and enhance your SSL Certificates—adding more value and providing even more protection for your business—while still giving online customers the greatest confidence that your website is secure. Since we became part of Symantec we’ve delivered:

What’s in store for the future

We’re committed to making this transition as simple and seamless as possible for you. In April 2012, the VeriSign seal you have on your site will automatically update to the new Norton™ Secured Seal, powered by VeriSign. This new trust mark will combine the power of the checkmark, the reputation of VeriSign and the consumer recognition of Norton into one.

The update will be automatic. You don’t have to do anything. Once the seal updates, it will be displayed up to 650 million times per day on over 100,000 websites in 165 countries. It will also appear in search results on enabled browsers as well as partner shopping sites and product review web pages. We will also be changing our product names from VeriSign to Symantec, for example: VeriSign Secure Site Pro will become Symantec Secure Site Pro.

New name. Same strength.

Although the name is changing, the same high security standards remain and we will continue to:

  • Provide the industry-leading encryption that secures more than 1 million web servers worldwide.

  • Use the same rigorous and proven authentication processes established by VeriSign to verify businesses and websites.

  • Provide the highest level of support you have come to expect with the same customer service and sales teams you know and trust.

Did You Know…

Consumers trust the Norton Secured Seal more than competitors.

Also, 94% of respondents are likely to continue an online purchase when they see the Norton™ Secured Seal during the checkout process as compared to seeing other seals or no seal at all (U.S. Online Consumer Study, February 2011).

We are committed to Serving You.

We're striving to make your experience with us as seamless as possible. That's why we've created the VeriSign Transition 101 Microsite filled with product enhancements and information on the new seal.
