NEEDHAM, Mass. -- ChosenSecurity, Inc., a leading specialist in identity verification and security services, today announced the availability of two new digital certificate products. The company, which was recently formed from a GeoTrust business, is offering Gateway Certificates and Team Certificates to help businesses send secure email that customers can readily identify as having originated from a trusted company.
The new ChosenSecurity products are designed to help companies protect their own customers from phishing attacks. Such schemes aim to persuade email recipients to disclose sensitive information, such as credit card or bank account numbers, to individuals or organizations portraying themselves as known financial institutions, online retailers or payment companies.
Phishing results in lost money and identity theft and, significantly, has caused millions of consumers to lose trust in any email that appears to come from banks or online retailers. By making Gateway and Team Certificates available at very competitive prices, ChosenSecurity helps re-establish email a viable way for legitimate businesses to communicate in a timely, cost-effective manner with customers. These solutions are currently available and in use by several large global financial institutions.
Neal Creighton, CEO of ChosenSecurity, said: "Most anti-phishing products on the market today are designed to help organizations or consumers protect themselves. Our Gateway and Team Certificates allow online businesses to extend protection to their customers. Phishing has seriously constrained the utility of email to many online businesses at a time when they need to operate as efficiently as possible and offer increasingly personalized communications. ChosenSecurity's new products will help these companies reclaim email."
