What is the difference between Standard (OV) and EV Code Signing Certificates?
DigiCert OV Code Signing (Organization Validated)
Software signed with this certificate, when run, will display a screen with your company name and ask if you want to continue with the installation, but it will not be a warning message.
Reputation is built organically as downloads and installations of the software increase.
DigiCert EV Code Signing (Extended Validated)
Software signed with this certificate, when run, will not display a confirmation screen before continuing with the installation.
The DigiCert EV Code Signing certificate provides instant recognition with the Microsoft SmartScreen reputation scanner.
To qualify for EV Code Signing certification, a company must have been in operation for three years.
