Types of Digital Certificates available through Technoweb Solutions

Technoweb Solutions sells four types of thawte Digital Certificates. They are as follows:

SGC SuperCert

The Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) digital certificate is our premium SSL certificate, providing the highest possible protection in all circumstances. The SGC SuperCert offers 256-bit encryption in all browsers (released after Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x or Netscape 4.06). In older-browsers it ensures a minimum of 128-bit encryption to 99.9% of all users, even if the user's browser supports only 40-bit or 56-bit encryption.

Note

You need an SGC SuperCert instead of our Web Server Certificate, if any of the following are true for your business:

  • You have an International (non-US) audience/customer-base, or/and
