The new homepage design which we are testing out was on display at Analyst Day in New York City on Thursday. The day ended with the VeriSign Team ringing the NASDAQ closing bell.

vam.jpgWe have been looking into getting a digital asset management system to house, manage, and retrieve our graphical, marketing, and other files. In researching this online, we found that there wasn't a lot helpful information out there. So, to save you some time, here are some things to look for when picking an asset management system:

  • Hosted (SaaS) or in-house client-side application
  • Ease of use and user-friendly interface - This one was key for us as we found many solutions with complex, multi-stepped, and poor UIs.
  • Disk space - default capacity and scaling up options
  • Subscription and setup fees
  • Number of users and admins supported and upgrading options
  • Ability to brand interface
  • File upload & download options - single file, batch uploads, ftp
  • Basic and advanced search capabilities
  • Supported...

We have rolled out our new homepage redesign today! Select users will see the new page initially; some may see different versions of the new homepage as we are conducting tests. The final redesign will be switched over in the coming month when it will be available to everyone.

The goals of the redesign include improving the usability and usefulness of the homepage. Our hope is that it helps you to be more successful and productive as a gateway to accomplishing your tasks.

What hasn't changed on our homepage:

  • Positioning of the contact us and worldwide sites links, and search utility.
  • Top level navigation menu functions in the same way with dropdown menus.
  • We didn't really remove anything although we improved the content.

Here are the main changes you can expect to find:

  • Interactive banner: An informational section to learn more about Internet-related issues...

phish-or-no-phish.jpgResearch indicates that the majority of users are unable to spot phishing Websites. In a study commissioned by VeriSign in the U.S., researchers asked users to identify fraudulent phishing sites from images of Websites placed side by side. A whopping 88 percent of users frequently missed the most obvious "tell tale" indicator which was the misspelling on the site which would have identified the phishing site.

How do you ensure that your online user experience is not affected by fraudulent sites? Here are VeriSign's top five tips to distinguish a real site from a phishing site:

1. https:// in the URL: The "s" in https:// means the site is encrypted,
so the information you enter is secured. While some phishing sites
do have a secured Web address, many do not. Therefore, site visitors
should be...

There are now 183 million domain names registered across all Top Level Domains (TLDs) which represents a three percent increase over the fourth quarter of 2008 and a twelve percent increase over the same quarter last year. This means that nearly 11.8 million new domain names were registered across all TLDs in the first quarter of 2009. While this reflects a 17 percent growth in new registrations over the fourth quarter of 2008, it is a 17 percent decline from the same quarter in the previous year. While domain names registered do not necessarily mean the equivalent number of Websites created, the numbers point to approximately 91 domain names registered per minute and if about 88 percent resolve to Websites, that would mean that roughly 80 new sites were created a minute or one a second.

Country Code Top Level Domain Names (ccTLDs) registered increased to 74.1 million, an 18 percent increase year over year and a four percent increase quarter over quarter. There were nearly...

Mother's Day is around the corner and millions of you will be sending flowers and gifts to your mothers and wives to the tune of $14.1 billion according to the National Retail Federation. As you scour the Web for sites to order flowers - at the last minute, of course - be sure you've hit the right sites and not potential phishing or spoofing sites. And what's one way to do that?

Look for the green address/URL bar as a visual cue that the site is protected by an Extended Validation SSL Certificate. The green bar signals that you've reached a site whose authenticity has been verified — and not a fraudulent, copycat Web page created by identity thieves to steal passwords, credit card numbers and other sensitive personal data. You do need the latest versions of the leading Web browsers to see the green bar.
