This wildcard certificate offers full business validation before issuance, which means Symantec will need to complete a light vetting of your company before assigning the certificate to your domain. This process usually takes between 3-5 days. However, once issued, this certificate will provide the most assurance to your customers of any wildcard option – as it features "https", the padlock icon, daily malware scanning, and the Symantec Site Seal, featuring the trusted and recognized Norton checkmark.
The Secure Site Wildcard enables full 256-bit encryption, along with supporting 2 encryption algorithms, RSA and DSA.. In addition to this high encryption level, Symantec includes a number of other security features with their certificates. This certificate comes with free daily malware scanning, offering a more comprehensive security solution.
Since this is a wildcard certificate, it can protect one main domain and an unlimited amount of subdomains. So, for example, you can use the Symantec Secure Site Wildcard to protect www.domain.com along with mail.domain.com, abc.domain.com, xyz.domain.com, etc..
You won't find a more compatible wildcard certificate on the market, as the Symantec Secure Site checks in at 99.9% browser compatibility.
