"clientTransferProhibited" was created at a time when it was possible to present fake credentials and basically steal someones domain name.  If it is your domain and you want to transfer it to another registrar, you have to contact your current registrar, get it unlocked and get a transfer code from them that the new registrar can use to perform the transfer.  Note that is legal for your current registrar to charge you to do the transfer.

I'm not gonna add much, but yes it does means that the domain is locked at your registrar company. such as GoDaddy.com

 
 As a side note in your case "verisign-grs.com" Verisign of course will secure their domains against any hijacking attacks and lock any domain transfer.

Hope that helps...
