With all the excitement of deploying EV SSL across major sites like eBay, Charles Schwab, PayPal, Travelocity, and most recently Fifth Third Bank, it's easy to lose site of the VeriSign Secured Seal. Remember, the VeriSign Secured Seal is like EV before EV. It is the way that a Web site can demonstrate that best of breed SSL security is in place on a site and that the identity of the site has been highly authenticated.

Welcome to this week's edition of Told-You-So Corner. Today's subject is the need for authentic identity with regard to online tax filing.

[Tim steps up on soapbox]

In the past I've spoken with many people (and blogged) about online tax filing as a vulnerability for phishing and other social engineering attacks. Well, this tax year we saw quite a spate of online activity that we could categorize as phishing attacks aimed at those seeking to file their taxes online.

I was so busy last week with my frantic Japan trip that I didn't have an opportunity to blog about VeriSign's EV SSL bundle with ScanAlert HACKER SAFE. ScanAlert will be offering VeriSign Extended Validation SSL Certificates to its HACKER SAFE customers at a discount off the regular price. EV SSL, the VeriSign Secured Seal, and the HACKER SAFE seal are a great combination to maximize consumer confidence and demonstrate to your customers that you're using best security practices to take care of them.

Today we had a great WebEx presentation on the latest updates in Extended Validation SSL Certificates. It was attended by over 100 businesses and during Q&A inspired considerably more questions than we could answer.

The seminar already is posted, and you can watch it here.

I'll be giving a Web seminar this coming Thursday on Extended Validation SSL. The last time we had 780 attendees and a great question and answer session. Now with the certificates actually deployed in the market, there's more information to share than ever.

Details follow:

Yesterday was what they used to call "black Monday" (because it was the day that put online retailers in the black) and they now call "Cyber Monday" (presumably because it sounds cooler). Cyber Monday is often the biggest sales day of the year online, and yesterday was huge. How huge? Well, I can tell you that for the first time in history over 100 million VeriSign Secured Seals were viewed in a single day. I'm very confident that's an unprecedented event. I can't think of another online mark might ever have been viewed in that volume.

Pretty cool.

Here's a good writeup on about Opodo's measured sales increase using the VeriSign Secured Seal. It includes a quote from Gartner analyst Avivah Litan, who describes the increase driven by the VeriSign Secured Seal as "unusual."

The latest of the leaders in online business to choose display of the VeriSign Secured Seal is Charles Schwab, aka Schwab joins the ranks of fellow investment services providers such as E*TRADE and Scottrade in proudly displaying that they use best-of-breed SSL security to protect their customers. These sites are particularly gratifying because in many ways they (like banks) represent the pinnacle of online security requirements. Customers go to these sites to perform very sensitive, valuable, and...

The estimated number of views of the VeriSign Secured Seal has exceeded 80 million per day. That averages over 29 billion views of the VeriSign Secured Seal per year. If we want to say there are 500 million active Internet users in the world, that averages almost 60 views per active user per year, or about five seals viewed per month. Each.

Here's a great one that just went up on the VeriSign site the other day. European online travel giant Opodo recently measured the effectiveness of the VeriSign Secured Seal in increasing sales. Opodo sent traffic to the exact same set of Web pages except that one batch of site visitors saw a page with the VeriSign Secured Seal present and one did not. Sales on the pages with the seal were 10% higher than on those without. You can read the full case study on how Opodo uses VeriSign SSL to increase online commerce transactions here.
