Lehi – DigiCert, Inc., a global Certificate Authority and provider of trusted identity and authentication services, was named to the 2014 Online Trust Alliance (OTA) Honor Roll, marking three consecutive years the company has earned this distinction. The Honor Roll measures high-traffic websites for implementation of online security and privacy best practices. DigiCert is recognized for its continuing commitment to industry leadership in building, advocating and following best practices.
In developing the 2014 Honor Roll, the OTA surveyed 500 million e-mails and approximately 10,000 web pages, benchmarking security and privacy practices among the largest U.S. online retailers, banks, social networks, news media and federal government sites. Honor roll recipients were selected based on a comprehensive analysis including SSL certificate implementation, privacy practices, e-mail authentication and use of Extended Validation SSL Certificates.
Among those surveyed, more than 80 percent of OTA members made the Honor Roll, while social networks led among other surveyed groups, with slightly more than half making the grade.
“Each year, the OTA continues to raise the bar for Honor Roll qualification, and as a result, we had fewer organizations make it this year than in previous years,” said Craig Spiezle, president and executive director of the Online Trust Alliance. “This fact further distinguishes DigiCert’s continued commitment to not only taking an industry leadership position to advocate high standards and best practices, but to aligning its own security practices with other best-in-class organizations. DigiCert’s efforts are helping to raise the bar for its industry and customers, and build a stronger, more trusted web for tomorrow.”
“We understand the difficult work of security professionals to protect their organization’s data from increasingly sophisticated attacks, and we partner with them each day to provide enterprise-grade products and support for their needs. Today’s business climate demands trust, and DigiCert is uniquely positioned to help organizations build reliable, trustworthy and properly implemented authentication and encryption services that retain consumer confidence and protect vital data from unsolicited parties,” said DigiCert CEO Nicholas Hales.
