3 benefits of using Entrust EV SSL Certificates: 

A boost in consumer confidence: From a store's perspective, ensuring the trust of its customers is one of the most important steps to establishing a great business model. These days, a large part of a company's reputation lies in its website; for patrons, feeling secure on that site is a key component of them trusting the business. LAWtrust’s EV SSL certificates provide patrons with this sense of security by displaying clear trust indicators when customers are carrying out online business. As a visual cue, these trust indicators are becoming something customers look for when they do online shopping. Seeing them will increase their confidence in a store.

 

Decrease in  phishing scams As an enterprise, the last thing you want is for cyber attackers to masquerade as your business in order to get personal data from unsuspecting customers. These days, phishing represents perhaps the single biggest threat to Web transactions. But if your company harnesses EV SSL, this will help provide customers with the ability to fairly easily distinguish between your site and that of an imposter. If the site seal isn't there in green next to the URL, then your customer will know that he or she is in the wrong place.

 

Business future-proofing: With threats mounting, companies are being prompted to adopt more advanced security measures. In this way, EV SSL represents a step that will be widely deployed in order to meet the bigger risks that come with e-commerce today. For companies that implement EV SSL now, they'll be taking an important step toward future-proofing.

 

What to look out for when doing online shopping for Black Friday or doing Christmas shopping:

  • URL needs to state HTTPS: S means the site is SECURE
  • Padlock: padlock needs to be invisible in the address bar
  • Address bar turns green: that means an EV certificate has been applied to the site
  • A website that is protected by an EV certificate will prominently display the name of the organisation to whom the certificate was issued to

 

Example of what a secure site looks like:

Any warnings received when accessing a site need to be avoided, example of warnings:

Should a user land on a webpage and the browser warns them that there is an error, it is highly recommended that the user close the webpage and not engage with the site any further.
