VerificationEngine™ - The free tool for Internet Explorer.
VerificationEngine enhances the capabilities of the ubiquitous Internet Explorer web browser to that of a true trusted business tool - verifying SSL connectivity protecting the browser toolbars whilst at the same time extracting and displaying the contents of any valid CVCs. The only way to combat fraudulent/spoofed websites is to ratify for your self that site elements are verified - this requires the verification to take place outside of the browser so that the fraudster can have no input into the results.
VerificationEngine will indicate that the site is legitimately able to display logos such as credit card icons (for online purchasing) and that the site is secured by SSL. It does so in a highly visible manner that is intuitive, fast and user customizable. For more details on VerificationEngine, please visit us at www.vengine.com
Web page contents are extracted from the CVC certificates and pulled through the Content Guard by Verification Engine. Any overlap of content (even by a single pixel) voids the verification process.
