20180529 - News regarding Symantec products options

DigiCert recently announced several changes regarding the services offered with some Symantec certificates purchase.

Scan anti-malware

REMINDER: this option propose a daily anti-malware scan of your web tools and reports encountered issues. A malware detection leading to the Norton seal de-activation.

WHAT'S NEW? On 31 May 2018, the Vulnerability Assessment will be enhanced:

  • To reduce impact on network resources and improve Malware Scanning times, the daily scan will not scan every page of the customer’s website
  • The Malware Scan will exclude blacklisted domains already identified as malicious

Vulnerability Assessment

REMINDER: this tool analyzes your site, web applications, server software and network ports to detect security vulnerabilities that could be used by hackers to infiltrate your systems.

WHAT'S NEW? On 31 May 2018, the Vulnerability Assessment will be enhanced:

  • Vulnerability Assessment will run one complete scan a month to minimize impact on network traffic
  • The Vulnerability Assessment report will identify specific points of weakness on each individual page so your customers can more easily target discovered vulnerabilities. The report will provide step-by-step proof-of-concept and recommended solutions for the vulnerabilities discovered


REMINDER: This marketing tool enabled the Symantec Safe Site to appear in the browser search result next to your web site.

This service will be discontinued on 15 July 2018. The service was typically delivered via a Norton browser extension, made available to consumers (usually part of a Norton software installation). While DigiCert has licensed usage of the Norton Secured Seal itself from Symantec, Norton software remains a property of Symantec, and updates to the Norton browser extension expected on 15 June 2018 will not support Seal-in-Search.

NOTE: These changes will apply to both active and new certificates and services. However, please understand that these changes will not impact the encryption and identity functions of our SSL/TLS certificates.
