VeriSign Extended Validation SSL Verification (EV SSL)
Zoara EV SSL
Zoara is dedicated to providing its customers with the most comfortable shopping experience possible. This is why our site is protected with VeriSign Extended Validation SSL Verification (EV SSL). EV SSL provides you, our valued customer, with a visual indicator that your online transactions are safe and that your internet connection is securely encrypted. While different browsers may display this security certification slightly differently, the basic SSL Verification indication appears in nearly all updated high-security browsers (ex: Explorer 7 , Mozilla 3) as a green lit address bar, or green band to the left of the site address.
What is EV SSL?
SSL verification has been used for years by millions of websites and its gold locked key which appears in the address bar is most likely familiar to most internet users. However, EV SSL has improved upon the old e-merchant identity and security verification system. While the old SSL had no standardized requirements for obtaining a certificate, EV SSL involves a more extensive verification process than any other verification certificate available on the internet. In order to obtain an EV SSL, websites must provide their Certification Authority (CA) with proof of their government filed legal company status, their incorporation registration number, their place of business, business name, and contact information at minimum. This information is reviewed and confirmed before a verification certificate is issued by any CA.
To review the credentials of any EV SSL verified e-merchant, simply click on the green address bar and a small window will appear with the registered name, address, certificate authority and a link that will provide you with further details. These details include encryption specifics, a preview of the complete validation certificate, website cookies, and more.
Green: The Mark of Security
E-merchants who provide their business credentials and neglect to provide their domain credentials to their CA may still obtain a VeriSign EV SSL. However, this EV SSL will appear as a blue lit address bar or blue bar to the left of the site address. These e-merchants have disclosed required documents verifying their legitimate company status, however, their domain identities have not been validated. At Zoara, we believe it is important for our customers to feel 100% secure with their purchase and confident with their e-transaction. For this reason, we invest in the green EV SSL and disclose all relevant information. The green address bar is the benchmark of complete security.
