OV = Encryption + Validation
OV SSL (Organizational Validated SSL certificate) introduces both encryption and company legitimacy information. The main advantage of this type of SSL certificate is that it gives users the ability to trust your website, by seeing who is the issuer and the company-acquirer of this SSL certificate.
Customers will not only transmit data securely but they will also able to see which company is collecting their data – the company standing behind the website. In other words, encrypting data itself does not provide any information about the company collecting it.
The procedure of acquiring this type of SSL certificate leaves no “doors open” for phony companies to purchase this SSL. That means that this a “hacker-free” SSL.
