The security environment is constantly changing as hackers become more sophisticated and your customers increasingly reach for mobile or tablet devices to carry out transactions online. Keeping up with the developments in malware and continuing to provide a secure and trustworthy experience for your customers is vital.

As a leader in SSL security, Symantec is always working on new solutions that help your business to anticipate and meet increasing security demands, and provide a safe environment for your customers.

Harnessing the latest technology, Symantec SSL certification with ECC is an easy way for your business to address the impending move to 2048-bit encryption and benefit from the explosion in mobile device and tablet use. ECC is a U.S. government-approved and National Security Agency-endorsed encryption method that offers your business enhanced security and better performance than current encryption.

Better Performance, Stronger Security with the ECC Algorithm

Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) creates encryption keys based on the idea of using points on a curve to define the public/private key pair. It is difficult to break using the brute force methods often employed by hackers and offers a faster solution with less computing power than RSA-based encryption.

Key Benefits of ECC

  • Better security
    ECC provides stronger protection against attacks than current encryption methods. The ECC algorithm relies on a mathematical problem that is more difficult for hackers to attack than the current encryption, making your websites and infrastructure more secure than with traditional methods.


  • Better Performance
    ECC requires a shorter key length to provide a superior level of security, For instance, a 256-bit ECC key provides the same level of protection as a3072-bit RSA key. The result? You get The security you need without sacrificing performance.


  • Investment Protection
    ECC helps protect your infrastructure investment by providing increased security that can handle the explosion in mobile device connections. ECC key lengths increase at a slower rate than other encryption method keys, potentially extending the life of your existing hardware and giving you a greater return on your investment.


  • Mobile Advantage
    ECC.s smaller key length means smaller certificates that consume less bandwidth. As more of your customers move to smaller devices for their online transactions, ECC offers a better customer experience.

ECC Compatibility

We know that keeping up with security requirements, compliance, and threats can be difficult, and that.s why Symantec creates solutions that will make protecting your business easier.

Symantec's ECC roots have been available in the top three browsers since 2007, so Symantec's ECC certificates will work in your existing infrastructure as long as modern browsers are used.

How Do I Get A ECC SSL Certificate

Both Symantec Secure Site Pro and Secure Site Pro with EV SSL Certificates, now give you the option of using the high security ECC algorithm (included free) to deliver stronger security than standard encryption methods while improving performance.
