Reliable security with organizational validation

Organization Validated certificates, or OV certificates, are a type of SSL technology that offers full 128- to 256-bit encryption to websites of businesses and other registered organizations. The difference between OV certificates and domain validated (DV) certificates is that a little extra vetting is required to confirm that you not only own your domain but that your organization is also legit. But don't fret! So long as your business is registered, the validation process isn't a problem. In most cases, it only takes a couple of days and you'll be all set.

Third-party verification

So why should you go through the little extra effort to purchase an OV certificate? The biggest differentiator is that when you have your organization validated, a trusted third-party online security company is vouching for you online.

People know that they can trust names like Symantec, GeoTrust, Thawte, RapidSSL, and Comodo, so when these companies can guarantee that you are who you say you are, it will make a person more likely to do business with you. These days, consumers are being more and more vigilant when shopping online, so websites that are protected by an OV SSL certificate have a distinct advantage over the competition.

Include your company info

Another advantage to OV certificates is that they come with a variety of can't-miss trust indicators that will tell visitors to your site that your company has been validated. With an OV certificate, your web address changes from HTTP to HTTPS and a padlock icon appears in the address bar – two well-known signs of security and reputability.

Plus, the most important feature of all, a dynamic site seal that contains verified and time-stamped information about your company and the third-party Certification Authority who issued the certificate comes with all OV certs. These things go a long way toward ensuring consumer confidence and building an extra layer of trust into your site.

Show you're a real business

SSL technology is all about protecting both you and visitors to your site and ensuring that visitors feel safe and secure on your site. If you're in e-commerce, collect any personal information, or just want the visitors to your site to at ease knowing they are dealing with a registered business, an OV certificate is an easy first step. EV is the next!

FAQs That You Should Know

No, OV certificates do not come with the green address bar. The only way to get the green address bar is with an EV certificate. You can browse our selection of premium EV certificates by clicking right here

Yes, OV certificates are a little more flexible when it comes to business validation than EV. The Organization Validation process is less stringent than the Extended Validation process. So, if you or your customer can't quite qualify for an EV certificate, there's still a chance you or they could qualify for an OV certificate.

The most common delay with OV is when the company listed on the certificate does not have a telephone listing. It is advised that they create a telephone listing in Dun & Bradstreet, Yellow Pages, Hoovers, or a regionally appropriate online phone directory.

There are many additional benefits to going with the Symantec Secure Site Pro. All Symantec certificates come with the valued Norton Secure Seal, which is the most recognized and trusted seal on the web by a large margin. Symantec certificates also come with daily malware scanning and a website vulnerability assessment, making them more of a total security solution.

Symantec certificates also come with seal-in-search technology, which will display the Norton Secure Seal next to your website in search engine result pages, instantly assuring customers that your website is safe and encouraging them to click on it.

What makes the Symantec Secure Site Pro the best and most expensive option is the addition of ECC encryption. ECC stands for Elliptical Curve Cryptography and is the latest enhanced approach to public-key cryptography. This encryption technology is based off the idea of using points on a curve to define public and private key pairs, which basically makes it nearly impossible to break using the most common brute force tactics employed by hackers. It also provides a much faster solution because it uses far less computing power than traditional RSA-based encryption. In a nutshell: ECC encryption is the lightest, fastest, and most secure algorithm on the planet!
