Providing Long-Term Security

Product: Three-year SSL Certificates
Company: VeriSign Inc.

Identity and financial theft and fraud over the Internet have become an all too familiar song. Security breaches within many well-known financial institutions and retail companies have taken place, and as a result, this type of fraud is one of the largest concerns of consumers.

VeriSign Inc. is one of the most trusted companies, helping to secure transactions on the Internet. According to a survey by TNS Market research, 40% of online shoppers have abandoned transactions that they otherwise would have completed if they had seen the VeriSign Secured Seal, that accompanies the company's security certificates.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology is the predominant protocol for Internet and telecommunications security. Last month, VeriSign began issuing three-year term SSL certificates.

The three-year certificates are a dramatic increase from those that previously expired after only a year. VeriSign, which provides SSL certificates to 93% of Fortune 500 companies and over 450,000 enterprises around the world, will provide these companies with added savings by not requiring renewal of the certificates on an annual basis.

Aside from reducing administrative costs by up to 24% through the elimination of yearly renewals, the three-year certificates come with a full set of premium features including 256-bit SSL encryption for compatible servers and browsers including Mozilla Firefox.

The company also offers certificates for Server Gated Cryptography, helping to ensure that all site visitors connect at maximum encryption.
