JERSEY CITY, NJ, February 1, 2011 - Comodo has launched a free upgrade of its Comodo Extended Validation Secure Sockets Layer (EV SSL) Certificate, with the purchase of any SSL Certificate for a limited period.
Website owners and operators can now have the advantage of a fully-functioning Comodo EV SSL certificate on their websites for the price of any SSL, a substantial price savings during a limited time offer.
"After just a few weeks using Comodo's EV SSL Certificates, online businesses frequently measure impressive increases in conversion rates, orders and revenue," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security architect. "Our research shows consumers look for reassurance online. With the increased confidence that comes with the EV SSL green address bar, businesses can build trust online every day. With this free upgrade for our EV SSL certificate, Comodo is offering businesses the opportunity to try and evaluate the ROI they get from this product for a year."
Comodo EV SSL Certificates build trust by protecting online transactions and communications with the industry's strongest encryption. Comodo SSL and EV SSL Certificates offer additional reassurance by independently authenticating the identity of the site's operators.
Comodo EV SSL Certificates give customers confidence that they are interacting with a trusted website. When consumers equipped with the latest high-security browsers visit a site protected by EV SSL, their address bar glows green, signaling that the website has gone through rigorous authentication by a third party, like Comodo, and reassuring consumers that their information is secure. This certificate makes it difficult for phishers and counterfeiters to impersonate legitimate businesses and hijack an online merchant's business, brand or customers.
Comodo customers have reported three-fold increases after displaying the Comodo EV SSL certificates. A leading provider of SSL and EV SSL protection worldwide, Comodo has been established in the market for more than 12 years and has more than 300,000 websites protected.
