VeriSign gets Norton Secured Seal

Users of VeriSign SSL certificates and other web browsers may notice a difference in the keys they normally see, as Norton Secured Seal will now be featured with VeriSign certificates. This can be great for businesses, as these are both trusted logos that show customers that the company is serious about keeping users safe when they surf their website.

“While Verisign has been leading in the SSL space for many years, we found that customers came to us and said that they need some kind of symbol to place on their site to demonstrate that they have SSL encryption in place and that they have been authenticated, so customers can really trust the site,” according to Symantec identity and authentication vice president Fran Rosh, according to ArnNet.com.

Rosh said this has been a planned switch since VeriSign was purchased by Symantec about two years ago and said this move will play a key role in the company's continued success. The VeriSign seal has built up a large amount of trust and Rosh said that "proves a very simple cue that the site is safe and can be trusted."

EChannelLine.com said Symantec executives believe business customers will value the Norton Secured Seal the most for its ability to enable a trusted, secure online experience for any transaction. New visitors and potential customers who see the seal will know the company makes security a priority. All of the company's partners have been informed of the change and Rosh said that they went with the same design with the Norton seal to help build even more trust for the brand and its customers.

Companies looking for a secure solution for its eCommerce website should take a look at VeriSign SSL certificates, as this can be a great signal to customers that their website is secure and safe for shopping, transactions and anything else.
