  • One less thing to do or worry about next year

Why do I need an EV SSL SGC Certificates

  • EV is the next generation of SSL Certificate - stringent verification processes developed by Certificate Authority (CA)/Browser Forum ensures your website is visibly more secure and trusted than with other types of Certificates.
  • Maximize your sales by gaining trust - the public is being educated to look for the "Green Address Bar" as a sign of trustworthiness. Make sure you gain competitive edge by displaying this essential trust indicator.
