What is CertSimple?

CertSimple helps companies prove their websites are authentic.

We do this using EV HTTPS, which is both a standard for verifying the legal entity controlling a website, and a way of embedding that identity inside a site's HTTPS (SSL) certificate.

Web browsers display the verified identity when the user visits EV HTTPS sites.

There are many companies who provide HTTPS, but they mainly provide cheap/free certificates that don't prove identity. CertSimple is the only service entirely focused on identity verification for HTTPS.
