128/256 bit SSL Certificates designed for securing leading web sites. Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) enabled certificates upgrade the encryption capabilities of older browsers from 40-bit encryption into full 128/256 bit encryption - ensuring your website protects and is trusted by the highest number of internet users possible. Comodo SGC certificates are the professional solution to securing your webserver and carry a warranty of $250,000.

Thanks to the revolutionary capabilities of IdAuthority, the identity assurance provider, Comodo SGC certificates are delivered to you faster than any other provider whilst adhering to the same stringent, two step validation process. The result is a highly trusted Certificate that does not undermine consumer confidence with the SSL protocol.

To help customers avoid the hassle of renewing every year, we also offer discounted 2 and 3 year Certificates. Each certificate comes with unlimited server licensing included in the price - meaning you are free to install it on as many physical servers as you wish.

Your browser ubiquity is a key element when choosing an SSL provider. Comodo SGC Certificates are inherently trusted by 99.3% of the current Internet population. Furthermore, SGC-enabled SSL Certificates upgrade the encryption level of older browsers from 40 bit or 56 bit into highly secure 128/256 bit SSL sessions.
