What is an EV SSL Certificate?

Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates is a new level of security authentication to clearly identify a web site’s organisational identity. When using a modern browser, a web site secured with an EV SSL Certificate will cause the URL address bar to turn green. A display next to the green bar will toggle between the organisation name listed in the certificate and the Certificate Authority (e.g Comodo). Older browsers will display EV SSL Certificates with the same security symbols as existing SSL Certificates.
