  • (1888PressRelease) July 04, 2013 - The SSL Store™ recently sold its 10,000th Extended Validation (EV) certificate since first opening for business in 2009. EV certificates require thorough vetting of a business before being issued, but they offer more features and benefits than any other type of SSL certificate. Websites equipped with an EV certificate experience the benefit of the green address bar that surrounds their URL - a universal symbol of trust across the internet. Some EV certificates offer additional features as well, like daily malware scans and vulnerability assessments, among others.

    "We're extremely proud of this milestone," said Bill Grueninger, General Manager of The SSL Store™. "Our team has been committed to selling EV certificates from day one - as we want to ensure that our customers have the safest and most trusted sites on the web."

    The market for EV SSL Certificates has been growing at a substantial rate. According to the Netcraft SSL survey from May 2013, the EV market has expanded 83.5% since 2011, with Symantec-brand certificates accounting for 58.9% of all active EV SSL certificates worldwide. Additionally, the overall SSL market, which includes DV, OV, and EV certificates, is expanding by 12.6% year over year - meaning the EV market is growing twice as fast.

    As businesses around the world continue to realize the benefits that EV Certificates can bring to their websites, the year over year numbers are expected to continue their upward trend. The SSL Store™ remains committed to catering to this ever-expanding market, and offering businesses from around the world a wide variety of EV certificates from the most trusted Certification Authorities in the industry.
