Help with the EV Process
Extended Validation (EV) requirements are no big deal!
First, let's help you understand the underlying notion of an EV certificate all together. In a nutshell, an EV certificate is the highest standard of website security & encryption, whereas the issuing Certificate Authority (CA), such as Symantec™, has an authentication process they must follow to properly vet a business before issuing this special security clearance. Ultimately, this process is in place to protect all web users from hackers, fraud, phishing or the mishandling of sensitive data. So, in order to promote or assure website users that a particular website is operated by a legitimate and registered company who is using the appropriate encryption mechanisms to secure all data transmission, you must first pass this standardized EV process.
If you're actually a real business, the EV process is really no big deal, you just have to follow the process and our lead. It's designed more for stopping fake or deceptive companies, than actual registered or real companies. So, now that you get the overall gist of an EV certificate, you're one step closer to being able to promote the highest level of confidence to website visitors across the globe when they're browsing, shopping or comparing companies online.
