SANDY, Utah -- Venafi, a leading provider of systems management for encryption, today announced it has added automated deployment, lifecycle management, and migration capabilities for VeriSign Extended Validation (EV) Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates to Venafi Server Encryption Manager (SEM). This provides organizations a cost-effective, automated method for upgrading their standard or premium SSL certificates to EV certificates to provide enhanced third-party validation of their Web site¹s authenticity, helping increase consumer confidence in online transactions.
VeriSign EV SSL Certificates allow businesses to provide consumers prominent visual cues such as turning the address bar green in high security browsers like Windows Internet Explorer 7. This green browser bar indicates the site¹s identity has been verified through an extensive authentication process, which helps assure consumers that the site they are visiting is indeed the business it claims to be and their online transactions will be encrypted.
³In addition to reducing the dangers of phishing attacks and other Web-based threats, VeriSign EV SSL Certificates can help increase consumer trust, leading to higher transaction completion rates and increased sales,² said Chris Babel, senior vice president, SSL, VeriSign. ³Venafi Server Encryption Manager streamlines the adoption of this new technology enterprise-wide so customers can realize the value of EV SSL quickly and easily.²
