SarvaSecure offers website certification and trust marks for small to mid size online merchants. The company provides testing and scanning of websites and issues trust marks for certified merchants.
Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2008 -- SarvaSecure, a leading provider of website security solutions, announced today the launch of its website certification and trust mark products for small to midsize online merchants. With this product, the company offers daily scans of its members` websites for vulnerabilities and provides certificates and trust marks. The online merchant displays the trust mark on its homepage and other pages of the website.
TNS, a leading independent research firm, shows in its study that 70% of online shoppers terminated online orders because they did not trust the transaction and 86% indicated that the presence of a seal would have likely prevented the termination. SarvaSecure addresses this pain point by scanning and testing member websites for many possible scenarios and when certified, issues the SarvaSecure trust mark.
"Customer confidence is the most important element when people are shopping online. Shoppers are more likely to become buyers when they notice a third party certificate because they know that the seller has gone above and beyond to ensure the website is safe and secure" said Mehmet Oguz founder and CEO of SarvaSecure. Mr. Oguz added "Our goal is to provide this service at a very affordable price point to small to mid size online merchants. Our basic certification and trust mark only costs $9.99 per domain per month. "
Trust mark and website certification services became essential elements of ecommerce and are used by over 80% of the top 100 eCommerce sites according to Internet Retailer, an independent publication that covers the ecommerce industry. These services however are not cheap, ranging anywhere from $1,200 to over $10,000 per year based on the size of the merchant.
"We believe in empowering the small online merchant. It is proven that the longtail of internet shopping contributes much more to the economy than the ecommerce giants. That`s why the smaller merchants should also have the tools the bigger merchants have without breaking the bank" said Mr. Oguz when inquired about the pricing structure of SarvaSecure`s products.
SarvaSecure uses industry standard and proprietary technology to scan its member websites for potential vulnerabilities and loopholes in their design. Website vulnerabilities are often exploited by "hackers" the individuals that want to harm the target website or steal sensitive data or both. By implementing a website security solution, merchants not only add another layer of protection to their sites but demonstrate their trustworthiness to shoppers by displaying the trust mark issued by the certifying company.
