The number one concern of internet users is that a website will keep personal information safe and secure. Toward this end, many users look for a website to display a third party seal as evidence of security.
Using a website seal is a good idea. But providing true website security requires more than just a seal - it also requires using several kinds of security controls managed by a security program to back the seal's promise. Merchants can choose from many kinds of web site seals, but only a comprehensive security seal can fulfill all key requirements for web site security.
Qualys SECURE Seal is a service that allows businesses of all sizes to regularly scan their websites for the presence of malware, network and web application vulnerabilities, and validation of the site's authenticity. Once a website passes these four comprehensive security scans, the Qualys SECURE Seal service generates a trustmark seal for display on the merchant website.
