DigiCert Secure Site: TLS/SSL Certificates a Notch Above Competition

Though they all share the common underlying technology, not all TLS/SSL certificate solutions are built the same. Secure Site, for example, as well as its advanced Secure Site Pro variant, stand out even among the more advanced digital security certificates.

In effect, Secure Site is a three-part product. Featuring 256-bit encryption, it comes with the digital certificate solution itself, the CertCentral Management Console software, and with support from DigiCert's own TLS/SSL PKI IoT network.

This means that DigiCert Secure Site delivers a three-pronged security solution that's more comprehensive than just about any of the other IoT and signing solutions you might come across. Interested parties may also opt for the integration of elliptical curve cryptography, in some cases - though this functionality may be limited to the more advanced Secure Site Pro package.

While all TLS/SSL certificates secure their target domain reasonably well, certificates Secure Site enhanced offer an extra nudge that will make your life easier, and allow you to spend less time and money managing and maintaining your setup.

DigiCert Secure Site in Context

Originally offered by Symantec, the Secure Site SSL/TLS Certificate range has built up a long history of security and trustworthiness. Now under the DigiCert CA, Secure Site has become even more established as a top-end SSL/TLS solution and is being boosted by additional features DigiCert offers as part of the Secure Site package.

Not only are you backed by the world's leading Certificate Authority, but you are also getting protected along with your customers, with a large $1,750,000 warranty offered by default, rather than being limited to the Secure Site Pro deal.

How does Secure Site stand out?

Having the padlock on your website indicates to your visitors that you take security seriously. All information will be transmitted with industry-leading encryption between your servers and your visitors' browsers.

No security warnings are shown to your visitors with Secure Site, which could otherwise cause the loss of both sales and trust. Of all SSL certificates, Secure Site (Pro) is one of the most well-regarded certificates on the market. It's well-marketed and reasonably popular even in layman terms.

Potentially even more important in the long run is that the implementation of Secure Site TLS/SSL certificates also helps with Search Engine ranking. Google has indicated that they use Secure Site implementations as a positive ranking factor, which means that having a good SSL certificate leads to better SEO positioning.

Enjoy the most authoritative TLS/SSL Certificate on the Market

DigiCert is a global provider of high-assurance PKI IoT and signing security solutions. Secure Site, in particular, is a part of their top-end certificate offerings. This shows even when it comes to extra features and authority recognition.

You can install the provided Norton Site Seal on your website/app for additional trust from your customers. Upon seeing this Seal, they can click it to view your verified business details. This information is all verified by DigiCert, and can not be fudged. It shows to your current and future customers that you are an established business in your country of operation and are in good standing with the appropriate authorities.

DigiCert has worked hard to establish a wealth of high-end security opportunities for their users (e. g. elliptical curve cryptography), and this is plainly visible with a Secure Site certificate. These security features are extremely valuable beyond mere intrusion and threat protection - they bolster your perceived authority in the eyes of your users and visitors.

Enterprise-Grade Verification, Easy and Fast with DigiCert Secure Site

Business Verification with other Certificate Authorities can be a time-consuming and frustrating affair. Not when you're dealing with Secure Site via DigiCert, though. Their streamlined verification process further underlines DigiCert's position as a trusted global provider of web security solutions. With access to priority support via DigiCert and SSLTrust sales or support teams, you can have the whole thing done in just two business days.

With such an industry-leading verification process, you may end up getting your new high-assurance TLS/SSL issued within the same day you put in your request. A huge boon for web security. Need a solution in short order? We can get it done fast.

Once your business is already verified, you can have any future certificates issued instantly as part of any new orders down the line.

Extra Features for Prospective Users

Certificate management is one of the main points of contention for long-time security integration on the web, especially if you're trying to get some of your free time back. Manage your certificates with minimum hassle via DigiCert's certificate management software: CertCentral TLS Manager.

With CertCentral, you're not just getting a full and comprehensive certificate summary for every TLS/SSL certificate implementation in your possession, but also a stellar overview for every security option you have access to.

Combine this with immediate access to priority support thanks to DigiCert's award-winning support systems, and you have the ultimate quality-of-life SSL toolbox right at your disposal. Secure Site really does it all.

DigiCert Secure Site SSL FAQ

DigiCert Secure Site is the unique lineup of high-end SSL/TLS certificate solutions. Web security veterans may recall that Secure Site branding had previously been owned by Symantec. Symantec has since been acquired by DigiCert, and instead of getting rid of the branding, DigiCert reappropriated Secure Site SSLs as their own high-end security solution, and upgraded it with their own high-security Root Certificate.

Generally speaking - yes, DigiCert Secure Site is better than a DigiCert Basic SSL. It is also, naturally, more expensive to begin with. The difference between the two SSL options lies in their complete feature-set, for the most part. Though both of them will apply industry-standard encryption to your data, Secure Site also comes with a DigiCert Smart Seal, a $1.75 million warranty package, with DigiCert Cert Central management software, and with a variety of priority support services, to boot.

Secure Site certificates are worth it for users who don't mind spending a bit more on security on a yearly basis. The added features will be a huge boon for webmasters that prefer a higher level of granularity to their SSL/TLS implementation, and the significant warranty packages ensure that you never have to worry about encryption levels again. DigiCert's Smart Seal, too, commands substantial authority, and will be appreicated by your users.

Even though DigiCert's Secure Site certificates offer incredible value to the customer, they're not the be-all, end-all of SSL/TLS security. If you're only interested in getting a basic encryption package in place on your website, or if you just don't care all that much about extra management features and warranty packages, there may well be no point in spending more money on items you probably won't be using. Consider the added features and see if they make sense for your particular use case. If not, go with the cheaper option.

Excellent and efficient customer service. We urgently required an EV codesigning certificate. SSL Trust assisted us after hours on the day we made the application (Thursday), company verification was completed the following day and the token arrived the following Wednesday. We were also provided with technical assistance with accessing the user portal and setting up the token. The experience was immeasurably more efficient than our previous experience purchasing an EV codesigning certificate from a supplier based outside of Australia.

SSLTrust were a bastion of sanity and competence during a unpleasant battle with Sectigo's processes. They went out of their way to help us get what we needed and it was great to have someone "in our corner". MUCH better than dealing direct! Kudos to Paul for his assistance.
