We are setting up SSL on a site and can choose between Equifax, Thawte, and Verisign as digital certificate providers. Verisign is twice the price of Thawte, and three times as much as Equifax. Any reason not to go with the least expensive? I don't think Equifax is going to vanish overnight on us.
Just so's you know... Geotrust acquires Equifax Digital Certificate Business Geotrust has wasted little time spending the money, announcing the purchase of Equifax's digital certificate business, at a stroke becoming the leading competitor to Verisign in SSL certification. Equifax, through pricing certificates at $99, has clawed back around 3% market share from Verisign, which at one stage after the Thawte acquisition stood at 99%.
