Firesheep AttacksWe all know about using SSL for encrypting logins and ecommerce transactions. But that protection doesn't usually extend across other parts of the same websites.

With the release of the Firesheep extension for the Firefox web browser, its developer Eric Butler has raised awareness of the vulnerabilities of users' Wi-Fi sessions to hijacking, side-jacking, and MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks.

To understand this issue and how to protect your websites and yourself, we have put together a page which addresses how to Protect Against Firesheep Attacks with Always-On SSL.

As you will see, there is nothing sheepish about our Firesheep page. What I like about this...

Overview:
The VeriSign Seal is an important offering for the company as well as a symbol of trust for many online. As we started to offer more ways customers could get the seal, it introduced some confusion. Customers can either buy the seal by itself or buy an SSL Certificate which includes the seal.

Problem:
The VeriSign Seal page has two main goals - one, to help customers understand the two options for getting the seal and what the differences are; and two, to help them install the seal. The modifications we made the the existing page did not seem to be addressing this clearly enough. The first call to action on the page was to install the seal which seemed to suggest you could simply install the seal without purchasing it. And, the second call to action was to buy SSL Certificates which seemed to be divergent from the subject of the page as it didn't provide enough context as to why it located there.

About a week ago, we added new interactivity to the third banner on the GeoTrust homepage. Upon clicking on the projector graphic, visitors are presented with a modal overlay featuring an embedded video on how more Alexa top 1 million domains are using GeoTrust. It's an infotaining and engaging video. Enjoy!

New And Improved GeoTrust Website

We've made some changes to the GeoTrust Website!

Cooler imagery + Multimedia + New messaging = New brand personality!

GeoTrust has always been an inexpensive, convenient, and reputable brand. And to further reinforce this, we've updated the site.

We are happy to announce the launch of the redesign of the RapidSSL.com Website today. This launch marks the culmination of overhauls to the branding, information architecture, content, and look and feel. Like its namesake, the goal of the redesign is to make the site rapid - simple, quick, and easy for users to get in and out. Users will be able to quickly determine what their options are and get what they need. The site itself is flat by design to facilitate this quick and easy access - with success measured by users spending the least amount of time on the site yet still achieving their goals.

colorShapePalette.gifThe new brand identity for RapidSSL is bold and distinct and includes, among other elements, a new color palette, logo, imagery, and typeface. In the case of RapidSSL, brown is the new black...

Here is an example of a recent video we added to help users understand 'SSL in Plain English':

200161322-001.jpgThe economy is hitting businesses hard all round and certainly no one is immune. However, there are some companies which are faring better than others even in the current harsh economic climate. Ranked as one of the ten IT vendors defying the gloom and doom is none other than VeriSign.

Even in tough economics times, internet security is still critical. In fact, some might argue it's even more so important given that crime rates have been known to increase in periods of economic downturn. Online identity theft and fraud are on the rise and undertaking precautionary measures to safeguard online identity is key. Whether it's outfitting a Website with an SSL certificate for encrypting transactions or a Secured Seal trust mark or a mechanism for...
