Identity theft, online fraud, or the interception of personal data; online consumers are increasingly worried about their Internet security. Hostpoint is the largest Swiss web hosting provider and the only Symantec SSL Gold Partner in the web hosting category. As such, Hostpoint now offers a wide range of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security solutions by Symantec, a global leader in Internet security. Swiss SSL clients can now receive the VeriSign Trust Seal and the VeriSign Secure Site SSL, as well as Secure Site SSL EV digital certificates, from one source, and also have a competent local contact regarding encrypted internet data traffic on hand.    

As part of the agreement with the VeriSign Authentication Service – announced in November 2010 – which today is part of Symantec, Hostpoint now offers additional certificates in addition to the already available VeriSign Trust Seal. As a Gold Partner, Hostpoint offers SSL certificates Secure Site SSL and Secure Site SSL EV by Symantec, both designed to meet the highest security standards. These certificates not only allow safe and encrypted data transmission via the Internet, but also assure customers of their security by providing smart add-on services while they browse, log on, or shop online.

VeriSign Secure Site SSL EV guarantees the highest security for website operators and their customers by utilizing encryption up to 256-bit key strength and very strong identity verification. Together with the VeriSign Trust Seal, the daily search of the website for malware and the Seal-in-Search technology (the VeriSign seal for search results), it conveys high confidence in the security of the website for customers. This trustworthiness can easily be recognized by the color of the browser address bar, which turns green with the use of VeriSign Secure Site SSL EV.

VeriSign Secure Site SSL also offers 256-bit encryption. Furthermore, the Trust Seal is recognized by most global users; it guarantees legitimate and secure transactions. The commitment to security is shown to visitors by the daily website search for malware. Also available are the following security solutions for price-conscious clients: SSL Premium, True Business ID, and True Business ID EV by GeoTrust, a Symantec subsidiary.

The partnering of Hostpoint with Symantec, a global leader in security solutions, is another milestone in the history of Hostpoint. The largest Swiss web hosting provider will expand its existing range of services this year with more innovative solutions in the areas of e-commerce, domain names and web hosting.
