SSL Certificates

The range of SSL Certificates available in today's SSL market is vast and over-complex. One of the key benefits of working with GlobalSign is our simplified and easily understood SSL product range.


DomainSSL
Fast & Economical

When the customer wants a lower cost, fast SSL Certificate. Only the domain name ownership is verified and the verification process is automated and can be completed in minutes. This Certificate should be offered when the customer needs a Certificate quickly and does not have the time or desire to go through any corporate vetting.


OrganizationSSL
Full Company Vetting

The company must go through a corporate vetting process which sometimes requires documentation and usually requires presence on third party company databases. The Certificate has a higher perceived level of trust and credibility in who the Certificate belongs to as the company details are included within the Certificate itself. The Certificate is issued within 1-2 business days.


ExtendedSSL
Activate the Green Bar!

The company must go through more stringent vetting which always requires validation of company documentation and other vetting means. Vetting is done in line with the CA/B Forum agreed guidelines. Not only are the company details included within the Certificate but the Certificate activates the Green Address Bar in browsers to show a higher level of identity assurance. The Certificate is issued within 3 business days.
