Advantages of Having a Publicly Verifiable Certificate.

A publicly verifiable certificate can provide many benefits for a business. It helps to identify and fix vulnerabilities in a company's systems, thereby improving the overall security posture. Additionally, a public certificate provides evidence of security testing and compliance, which can establish authenticity and credibility for the business.

By displaying the public verifiability of the certificate on the business website, it can create a sense of trust among customers and partners. This trust can be further enhanced by demonstrating the company's commitment to maintaining security compliance and taking proactive measures to protect data.

In addition to building trust, a publicly verifiable certificate can be an excellent selling point for businesses during sales negotiations. It provides evidence of regular pen-testing and security testing, which can be a deciding factor for security-conscious clients.

By being known for its security-conscious posture, a business can attract clients who prioritize security-aware organizations. This can help build a positive reputation in the industry and inspire other businesses to think more proactively about security and take measures to implement and test their systems.
