Which EV certificates have a quicker and easier Extended Validation process?

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

EV SSL Certificates issued by GeoTrust, Thawte and Symantec have a quicker and easier Extended Validation process compared to those issued by Comodo.

With GeoTrust, Thawte and Symantec, the Certificate Authority does most of the company validation process all by itself, and in rare cases requires the customers to provide additional information and legal letters signed by a notary, certified public accountant, or an attorney.

On the other side, Comodo relies a lot on the customer to provide all the information about his/her company, as well as updating the company’s DUNS listing (on the Dun & Bradstreet website) and providing legal letters signed by a notary, a certified public accountant, or an attorney.
