DigiCert Website Security delivers next-generation website security solutions that allow companies and consumers alike to safely navigate the Internet and to perform secure online transactions. Along features that ensure the SSL certificates are always up to date, DigiCert is continuously investing in research and development to enhance its trusted roots.
SSL certificates are part of the basic security standard in online data traffic. Only SSL-encrypted websites are marked as secure by browsers.
This strengthens the trust of Internet users in SSL-encrypted websites, leads to higher visitor and click rates, more traffic and eventually generates more sales.
Depending on the scope of the online project and how data is processed, the appropriate SSL certificate with the corresponding encryption variants can be applied.
Domain Validation (DV): Quick encryption without any indication of trustworthiness – suitable for simple web projects without processing of sensitive data
Organization Validation (OV): Company data is verified and displayed in the certificate as verified authorized user - suitable for sites that process slightly sensitive data
Extended Validation (EV): Highest security level with visual confirmation of identity - ideal for e-commerce & online stores, banks and SaaS applications to protect highly sensitive data (bank details, personal data etc.)
Using S/MIME certificates, you can digitally sign and encrypt emails. This works with the Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions technology, in short S/MIME.
A cryptographic key is bound to the identity of the sender, so recipients of email messages can be sure that the email came from the original sender and not from an imposter.
The advantage: This protects sensitive data in the email, prevents tampering and proves the integrity and authorship of the sender.
Additional bonus: S/MIME certificates also allow the implementation of electronic signatures in documents created with Microsoft Office.
With code signing certificates, developers and companies can digitally sign their applications and software, attach a unique cryptographic hash as proof of identity, add a timestamp and make it available online for customers or users.
The advantage: Users can be sure that the provider is trustworthy, the software has not been tampered with and the download is legitimate – as secure as sealed software from the store.

By using seals of confidence such as the DigiCert Secured Seal (formerly known as Norton Secured Seal) you can show your visitors that security is a top priority for you. The DigiCert Secured Seal is a dynamic, animated graphic that is displayed only on websites that are secured with a DigiCert Website Security or DigiCert Secure Site SSL certificate. If a visitor clicks on the Norton Secured Seal, a verification site will open with information about the relevant company, the status of the malware search and details about the implemented SSL certificate. The Norton Secured Seal is displayed in 170 countries more than a half billion times per day.
Malware is a harmful computer code. Hackers use security gaps to get access to websites and install malware.
Such malware can be used to spread viruses, take control of other computers and steal personal data. Very often malware is quite difficult to detect and can perhaps infect the computers of your customers when visiting your website.
