<strong>Jersey City, N.J. &mdash; April 30</strong><br />Comodo, a certification authority (CA) and provider of identity and trust assurance management solutions, announced it has seen a dramatic increase in the number of companies coming to Comodo for their EV and EV SGC SSL certificates. <br /><br />Notably, a large proportion of these EV SSL Certificates are expiring certificates from other providers and these companies are renewing their EV SSL Certificates with Comodo. EV SSL Certificates have increasingly become the standard for SSL certificates because they provide site visitors added identity authentication through a visual browser-based indicator that turns the site&#39;s URL green when a secure session is initiated. <br /><br />This indicator enables the visitor to authenticate both the identity of a site&#39;s owner and the CA that issued the EV Certificate. As EV SSL Certificates enter their second year in the market, Comodo is capturing a large share of all renewing EV SSL Certificates industry-wide. <br /><br />Online business of all types are recognizing the importance of EV SSL Certificates for their sites because they provide consumers using Internet Explorer 7 with instantly recognizable visual cues that help assure them they are on an authenticated Web page and not a phishing site. This new green "trust" indicator confirms that the transaction is encrypted and the organization has been authenticated according to the most rigorous industry standard including: <br /><br /><ul><li>The legal, physical and operational existence of the entity.</li><li>The identity of the entity as specified on official records from public databases (instead of obtaining documents directly from the e-merchant. </li><li>The entity&#39;s exclusive right to use the domain specified in the EV certificate.</li><li>The entity&#39;s proper authorization for the issuance of the EV certificate.</li></ul><br />When a financial institution or other online business uses an EV SSL Certificate, browsers such as IE 7 and the latest beta version of Firefox 3 will turn the address bar green in addition to providing the name of the organization that owns the site and the CA provider that issued the certificate. Comodo is emerging as the EV SSL provider of choice because of a powerful combination of proprietary deployment technologies that reduce costs along with a cost structure that represents a saving of potentially thousands of dollars versus other certificate brands. <br />
