CIOs Rank VeriSign as One of the Leading High-Tech Vendors for Value

VeriSign Singled Out for Helping Companies Increase Revenues and Meet ROI Goals

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - November 28, 2007) - IT executives have ranked VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the leading provider of Internet infrastructure for the networked world, as one of the industry's highest value vendors, according to CIO Insight's recently published 2007 Vendor Value Study. VeriSign ranked number one in the security category and tied with Google and HP for second place, overall.

VeriSign was also ranked number one in two Value categories: "Meeting Expectations for Increasing Revenues" and "Meeting ROI Expectations." VeriSign's score improved nine percentage points over last year, receiving top scores in value, reliability and customer loyalty in the security category.

"Vendors are only as good as their ability to deliver on the expectations they set in the sales process, and these results show that VeriSign has worked hard to meet or exceed those expectations, every day," said Bill Roper, CEO, VeriSign. "We're honored to rank so highly in CIO Insight's latest Vendor Value Study, particularly as these rankings are based on the experiences and opinions of customers. We'll continue to do everything we can to earn their respect and loyalty."

"VeriSign's rise shows security pays off," noted the CIO Insight article summarizing the study's findings. "CIOs feel most security vendors are doing an even better job of protecting them than last year. No category scores higher on average at 'solving the business problem paid to solve.'"
