Why EV Code Signing?
Microsoft SmartScreen is the gatekeeper to over 20% of the market (based on a recent market share study). SmartScreen filters for phishing, malware and malicious downloads. Unfortunately, it's a very skeptical filters. Software publishers without sufficient application reputation will have their downloads flagged, effectively killing most of your conversions.
Extended Validation Code Signing prevents this by putting your company or organization through a rigorous vetting process. Rigorous might be a bit strong-it's intensive, but no problem for any business with its registration information up to date. Once SmartScreen sees you've under gone Extensive Validation, it affords you greater application reputation. That means no more downloads getting flagged. No conversion-killing warnings.
