What is the Ask.com digital certificate?

The main purpose of the digital certificate is to ensure that the application belongs to the entity to which the certificate was issued. The Ask.com digital certificate does not guarantee that a signed application is safe to run, but rather informs the user that the software was digitally signed by Ask.com and verified by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).
Founded as Ask Jeeves in 1996 and re-named Ask.com in 2005. In the last few years, Ask has been focusing on its search traffic through various methods, the number one being installation of its various toolbars through a number of bundle programs. IAC, which owns Ask.com also owns other Internet 'search' and software companies including Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. (Mindspark). The Ask Toolbar is a free browser add-on that allows you to search the Web using the Ask.com search engine directly from Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. Ask Sponsored Listings is the search engine marketing tool offered to advertisers to increase the visibility of their websites (and subsequent businesses, services, and products) by producing more prominent and frequent search engine listing. www.ask.com

About (from Ask.com at www.ask.com)
Here at Ask, we're dedicated to answering your questions, whether they're as big as deciding when to have a child or as small as knowing who won the 1979 World Series. (The Pittsburgh Pirates, in case you were wondering.) In July of 2010 we rolled out a new Ask.com designed to do a better job of just that. As the only Q&A service combining the power of search with the insight of a live user community, Ask.com's innovative technology scours the web to find answers where they exist online, then turns to a qualified Ask.com user when they don't. This means that if an answer to a question is published on the Web, we will find and deliver it in milliseconds, and we'll put the answer, not a link, at the very top of the page. But what if the question is too subjective for a machine to interpret correctly, or the answer has yet to be shared online? In those cases, we'll use our proprietary matching technology to route the question to a qualified Ask.com user who can help. Now available as a mobile app, Ask users can leverage their mobile devices to simply say any question ? and get fast, credible answers delivered right in the palm of their hands.

Headquartered in Oakland, California with an international presence in the UK and Europe, Ask.com is the fourth biggest site on the web when it comes to monthly searches, and attracts more than 90 million unique users every month in the US alone. Ask.com is a wholly owned business of IAC (Nasdaq: IACI).
