Benefits of EV SSL for Resellers at HostingCon 2012

Issuance within hours and award-winning support from DigiCert available to partners

BOSTON, MA (July 17, 2012) — Today, as the nation’s leading web hosting providers gather in Boston for the HostingCon 2012 conference, DigiCert is inviting resellers to enable customer business success by providing high-assurance SSL certificates, issued within hours. Throughout the show, company staff will be available at Booth #229 to discuss how DigiCert can help web hosts quickly and easily deploy high-assurance SSL certificates, such as Extended Validation (EV) certificates, that increase customer trust and conversion.

“DigiCert is pleased to offer partnering opportunities for web hosts and other resellers seeking to provide high-assurance SSL certificates to their customers,” said DigiCert VP of Sales Aaron Watson. “We’re excited to combine one of the SSL industry’s largest libraries of free tools, award-winning customer support, fast issuance times and competitive pricing to help web hosts deliver premium value to their customers.”

Recent studies demonstrate the trends toward increasing adoption of EV SSL certificates. Last month, the Online Trust Alliance released its 2012 Online Trust Honor Roll and Report, which noted a 48 percent increase in EV certificate deployment over 2011 among those surveyed. As consumers more closely scrutinize where they will conduct online business and e-commerce, EV certificates offer the heightened security measures and browser bar trust indicators that can lead to higher conversions for online merchants. With increasing conversions and revenues, web hosts choosing to employ EV certificates can yield greater customer loyalty, retention and business while also solidifying their brand as a security-minded firm.

As a leading Certificate Authority (CA) and the world’s third-largest issuer of high-assurance certificates, DigiCert brings to resellers an unmatched value proposition of best security practices, competitive pricing for EV SSL certificates and hassle-free customer support. The company also offers its SSL Discovery Tool free of charge, which web hosts can utilize to help current and prospective customers identify and address their security needs. DigiCert’s focus on customer value and partnership led to its being named “Best in Class” for SSL Customer Value Enhancement in 2011 by Frost & Sullivan.

“Now is an opportune time for resellers to pass along the DigiCert value to their customers, while enjoying enhanced partner revenue and a simplified certificate deployment process,” said Watson.
