Introducing Extended Validation SSL From Verisign - Improving SunNet Security!
At Suncoast, online security is a top priority. Our eBusiness and Information Technology staffs are constantly looking for ways to improve online security and enhance your online experience. Over the years, layers of security have been added to SunNet that while invisible to you, have decreased the chances of fraud being committed on Suncoast accounts. In the very near future, Suncoast will renew our Sunnet SSL certificate using a new product from Verisign. What does this mean? Extended Validation SSL (EV SSL) is a new type of SSL Certificate. Suncoast uses Extended Validation SSL to secure your online transaction with us because we take your online security very seriously. EV SSL signifies that Suncoast has passed the strict EV identity authentication process. Our EV SSL Certificate will trigger your browser address bar to display https:// and if you use a browser released in 2007 or later (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 7) your address bar will turn a noticeable green color. To the right of the address bar, a field will display Suncoast as the owner of the SunNet website. This field will also toggle to display VeriSign, the industry-leading certificate authority that issued this SSL Certificate. When you see your address bar turn green, simply look to the right to see that Suncoast is the organization you intended to visit. The address bar changes to green to indicate the sites authenticity. If the address bar is red, that means the site is a reported phishing site, and you should close the window or tab and be extremely wary of entering any personal data.
If you have any questions, please contact us online
