EV Comodo code signing certificates provide a two-factor authentication where the private keys of the codes are stored on an external hardware token which would be essential for sign code, thereby eliminating the possibility that your code signing certificate could possibly be used or exported by an unauthorized personnel. Operating systems and browsers display warning messages to users when they come across such unsigned codes on a software. EV code signing certificates do the job of eliminating these messages and immediately building file reputation in Microsoft’s SmartScreen application and reputation filter.

Regular code Signing certificates allow software developers to digitally sign their digital code to prove it has not been modified by any source or third party. EV code signing includes all the features and benefits of regular code signing certificates, but it also introduces essential security features to increase software security and improves customer’s trust.
