Thawte s new SGC SuperCert now automatically steps up to 128-bit encryption for certain end-users with the Windows 2000 operating system who, in the past, would not receive 128-bit encryption irrespective of the version of Internet Explorer used. The systems affected are those that shipped prior to about March of 2001 and did not subsequently have Microsoft s High Encryption pack or Service Pack 2 installed. thawte s SGC SuperCert ensures that all these site visitors enjoy the protection of the strongest SSL encryption available.
An SGC SuperCert from thawte will allow you to extend 128-bit encryption to your customers, even if they use browsers (IE 4.X or Netscape 4.06 and later) limited to 40-bit or 56-bit encryption capabilities.
