There are more than 20 different companies (internationally) that can issue EV SSL Certificates . It’s beyond the scope of this site to try to provide detailed information about everyone of them. We’ve chosen to focus our attention on the most recognized brands.

Note: Our site’s audience is not international, so we’ve chosen to confine our efforts to those services that serve North American markets. Not being included here is not meant to imply that any of certificates are less secure of less effective.

At the time of this writing; the most recognized brands providing EV SSL Certificates are:

  • VeriSign
  • GeoTrust
  • Thawte
  • GoDaddy
  • Comodo
  • DigiCert

It’s important to note that VeriSign, GeoTrust and Thawte are all owned by the same parent company but are still essentially competing with one another in the greater marketplace.
