All online casino websites display the information about what they do so that financial transactions and the funds themselves are safe from being hijacked by third parties. The most reliable casino don’t stop there – they don’t want players to simply trust them, they want to provide proof.
Independent organizations give certificates to casinos with secure systems. It’s similar to Technical Systems Testing or eCOGRA certificates for fair games.
VeriSign Inc. is one of the most reputable organizations certifying financial transactions’ security. The casinos that meet the requirements get the „VeriSign Secured” seal to display on their websites.
VeriSign launched in 1995, as an RSA spin-off, when the first online casinos started to emerge. Its revenue goes as high as $1 billion a year. It has more than 2,000 employees. It’s quoted on the NASDAQ.
VeriSign doesn’t only certify online casinos, but also retail applications, military, financial services and many more businesses – it has issued over 3 million different certificates. It also offers other services related to the Internet infrastructure.
The technology used by VeriSign is Secure Socket Layer (SSL), which guarantees security of sensitive data, such as credit card numbers, by using encryption.
There’s also a „VeriSign Trusted” seal in addition to the „VeriSign Secured” one. It means that the website went through a daily scan for malicious code and passed it.
