In April 2012, all VeriSign seals will automatically update to the Norton Secured Seal, combining the power of the VeriSign Checkmark with the value of the Norton name. The combination of these leading companies will help assure your customers that your website is safe from search to browse to buy and sign-in.
The VeriSign Checkmark, part of the most recognized trust mark on the Internet, will be combined with the leading name in personal technology protection, Norton, and become the Norton- Secured Seal. After the update, the Norton Secured Seal will be displayed up to 650 million times per day on over 100,000 Web sites in 165 countries and in search results on enabled browsers as well as partner shopping sites and product review pages. At this time, all mentions of the VeriSign name will also be updated to Symantec to reflect the new company ownership.
Through a strategic integration with VeriSign Authentication Services, now from Symantec, Norton Safe Web has new safety rating seal – Norton Secured. VeriSign Authentication now provides Norton Safe Web with additional information on business authentication and encryption that further validates a site’s safety rating. These sites will display Norton’s highest safety rating – Norton Secured.
New name. Same strength.
Although the name is changing, the same high security standards remain and we will continue to:
- Provide the industry-leading encryption that secures more than 1 million web servers worldwide.
- Use the same rigorous and proven authentication processes established by VeriSign to verify businesses and websites.
