The highest level of protection offered for TLS, Extended Validation (EV) is the industry standard for business web sites. When an EV SSL certificate is loaded on a site, browsers will display additional trust indicators, including the company name in a green browser address bar. Commonly referred to as the “green address bar” or “branded address bar,” this interface element tells users they are interacting with the intended online business and not a scamming imposter.
To obtain an EV certificate, a company must go through a rigorous, standardized, human-reviewed authentication process that has not been defeated in more than ten years.
Displaying the company name in the browser has been shown to build visitor confidence and improve engagement with sites, increasing purchases, use of online services, and the sharing of personal information. With multiple ecommerce sites finding a significant increase in transactions when testing green address bars, including such visual security indicators can deliver a boost in engagement with your information and services
