what are they?
The SSL protocol is the web standard for encrypting sensitive communications between computers and the servers they are communicating with.
Data sent via a SSL connection is protected by encryption, a mechanism that prevents eavesdropping and tampering with any transmitted data.
SSL provides businesses and consumers with the confidence that private data sent to a web site, such as credit card numbers, are kept confidential.
Customers know when they are using SSL if their browser displays the padlock and the address bar begins with a https rather than http.
Extended Validation certificates
get the benefits of the Green Address Bar
EV certificates go beyond encryption: they add trust to a website. At TEAMnetwork, our EV SSL certificates come from some of the most trusted brands in the world and will give customers the confidence they need to transact and exchange personal information online. Extended Validation or EV for short, is a browser feature which lets your customer know that the company they are dealing with has been thoroughly vetted, and is safe to do business with. The validation process for an EV certificate usually takes around 5-7 business days, and is conducted directly by the Certificate Authority.
If you use your website for advertising purposes or for ecommerce, EV SSL certificates are a must. Some of the other highlights of EV certificates are:
- Trust indicators added to your website, such as the green address bar, which will surround your URL. This is the same green bar used by highly trusted sites like Microsoft, Google, TradeMe etc.<
- The highest level of encryption, ensuring user information is well protected from hackers and phishers.
- Additional security features available with some EV certificates like daily malware scans and vulnerability assessments.
- 99.9% browser compatibility.
- And more...
