Companies must complete a light validation before having this certificate issued. That’s because Thawte SSL Web Server certificates are Organization Validated. This process typically takes between 2-3 business days to complete. The benefit to going with an OV certificate is that it brings more trust to your website. Along with the standard https and encryption, this certificate includes a dynamic site seal which will help assure your visitors that you are who you say you are – the most important message to get across on the web.
Thawte SSL Web Server certificates are available with the highest 256-bit encryption level. Your customers will know that your website is secure once they notice the Thawte Site Seal and the company information embedded within it, once you receive after passing the Organization Validation process.
This certificate does offer SAN support, as you can protect up to 25 domains on just a single Thawte SSL Web Server.
