Eastern Maryland County Commissioner Chooses Comodo Extended Validation SSL Certificates to Verify Site Identity

Comodo announces that the Commissioner's Office of Carroll County, Maryland, has chosen Comodo's EV SSL certificate to verify its Web site identity thus protecting taxpayers and residents' sensitive information during online transactions. The Commissioner's Office will employ EV SSL on its website in a concerted effort to heighten its online security and protect Carroll County residents from fraud and theft of personal information such as social security numbers and telephone numbers.

EV SSL builds on the trust that the marketplace has in traditional SSL protection by adding a visual confirmation of a site's identity to end users through a green "good to go" indicator displayed in the Microsoft IE7 browser address bar. Since EV SSL certificates help Internet users easily distinguish legitimate sites from phishing sites designed to steal sensitive information, Carroll County residents will now be better protected from such scams when conducting business online with the county government.
