Extended validation SSL certificates will grow big over next two years

With the increase of internet transactions on eCommerce websites, the global extended validation SSL certificates market is poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 56.5 percent from 2010 to 2014, according to Markets.

“Increasing competition between vendors is resulting in integration of malware scanning and other added security features in EV SSL certificates," an analyst from TechNavio’s IT security team said. "Additional features such as malware scanning, accessibility evaluation and security-auditing modules help end-users effectively secure their network. Since end-users are now demanding a consolidated solution, which can provide additional security features apart from SSL, vendors providing add-on security modules are experiencing stronger growth.”

The major driver for this growth will be the amount of online transactions taking place. Even things such as quick transfers and purchases online can be protected by SSL certificates, and businesses seem to be taking notice.

Webopedia said SSL certificates will help promote security and integrity of an eCommerce website in an era where cybercrime is growing. A proper SSL certificate program can be a great way for a business to keep itself and customers safe.
