VeriSign took silver with its range of PKI services. The company edged out the competition due to its top scores in the ease-of-use and response categories, where more than 70% of readers rated it excellent/very good. During the past year the company has expanded its reach with the acquisitions of GeoTrust, a supplier of SSL certificates, and SnapCentric, a provider of online fraud detection solutions that help companies comply with the FFIEC regulations. VeriSign also recently announced its Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates that support Microsoft's IE 7 and Vista and incorporate technology that enables all Windows XP clients using IE 7 to display the same green address bar and other enhancements on Vista.
