TLS/SSL Certificates

Online financial service providers can combat phishing, increase customer protection, and improve use on online services through the SSL choices they make. Extended Validation (EV) SSL to maximize protection against phishing.

EV SSL is an indispensable part of your strategy to protect your assets, customers, employees, and partners from the variety of potential social engineering attacks usually described as phishing or spear phishing. Browsers accessing pages protected by EV SSL certificates display the company-branded address bar adjacent to the URL (often called the “green address bar” because most browsers display the company name in green).

This gives visitors the information they need to distinguish between your real sites and the otherwise perfect fakes they can be lured into. Extended Validation SSL is the only way to place unspoofable proof of your identity in the browser interface. By providing visitors with this important cue, you can seriously impede criminals’ ability to abuse your brand through phishing techniques like:

  • Account takeover attacks
  • Spear phishing of employees and ecosystem partners
  • Theft of PII
  • Theft of credit card details
  • Data mining to enable complex social engineering attacks

EV SSL is considered a best practice for all sorts of online financial businesses including:

  • Retail and commercial banking
  • Credit unions
  • Securities trading
  • Insurance
  • Tax filing
  • Wealth management
