About Thawte WebServer EV SSL

Thawte EV SSL is a great choice for e-commerce websites or medium businesses. It has good issuing times - around 3 days, with good validation support. Thawte WebServer can be issued for unlimited servers. Also, free reissues are allowed in case the private key has been lost. This certificate protects data exchanged between the website with a 128 or 256bit encryption algorithm, depending on your browser/server settings. With 1.5M warranty, it is one of the highest assured certificates, so it could be used for shopping cards, banking software, accounting software or any other that requires the highest level of assurance.

It also protects your website against fraud and Man-in-the-middle-attack-s. Although it doesn't fully protect against all security vulnerabilities, it does improve fraud protection, by using the identity verification mechanism of the EV SSL. Your customer accessing your website, that was compromised, might see that web browser's address bar doesn't contain your company information, and might check again the security settings as well as the domain name that is accessed.


About Thawte

Thawte is a well-known SSL brand across the security industry. It was launched in 1995 in South Africa by Mark Shuttleworth, in his parent's garage. The goal was to avoid the restrictions on the export of cryptography imposed by the United States. Later his company Thawte Consulting switched its focus to issuing high-quality SSL certificates and was acquired by Verisign which then was bought by Symantec Corporation.


Trust Site Seal

All Thawte Certificates get a Trust Site Seal which is meant to show customers your company information, what algorithm the website is protected with and warranty. As Thawte WebServer EV SSL is the highest assurance certificate, each transaction that took place on the website which has the WebServer SSL installed, is assured by 1.5M U.S. dollars. That is a huge number, and it does increase customers' confidence in the website which has such certificate installed.
