SSL certificates

What is an SSL Certificate?

SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites.

Types of Certificates

Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates

For e-commerce applications and sites where sensitive information is exchanged, EV SSL certificates deliver the highest level of trust to website visitors. With EV SSL certificates, a visitor's address bar will turn green and display the organization's name and location confirming the site's identity along with the Certificate Authority (CA) doing the verification according to standardized industry guidelines established by the CA/Browser Forum.

Multi-Domain EV SSL Certificates

For enterprises and organizations looking to cost-effectively secure multiple websites with EV SSL, the highest levels of security. Multi-domain certificates expand the value of EV by allowing businesses to secure up to 100 distinct domains on a single certificate - greatly simplifying SSL management processes and delivering substantial cost savings versus individual EV certificate purchases.

Wildcard SSL Certificates

For organizations hosting a single domain name but with different subdomains (e.g., secure,,, the Wildcard Certificate is cost effective and efficient means of securing all subdomains without the need to manage multiple certificates.

Unified Communication Certificates (UCC)

For Microsoft Exchange 2010 and Office Communications Server 2007, a single UCC/SAN Certificate can cover many different domains. Built for these Microsoft environments, UCC simplifies the process of configuring SSL security and provide SSL support which traditional or Wildcard SSL certificates cannot do.
