EV SSL Server Certificates: Looking Up to the Other "Green" IT

Presented by

Derek E. Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow for IT Security, Aberdeen Group

About this talk

Perhaps one of the most overlooked areas for improved key management involves deployments of SSL Server Certificates and Extended Validation (EV) SSL Server Certificates – the latter which require a more rigorous vetting process to confirm the identity of the requesting site owner before being issued. Aberdeen's research shows that leading performers were 1.7-times more likely than lagging performers to have current deployments of EV SSL Server Certificates, providing their end-users with a higher level of assurance of a legitimate web site and greater confidence in conducting online transactions.
