SSL Security

An SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates a website's identity and enables an encrypted connection. SSL certificates uses encryption algorithms which scrambles the data so hackers cannot easily read or grab the data. So, sensitive data like name, card details, address cannot be grabbed over internet.

Websites need SSL certificates to keep user data secure, verify ownership of the website, prevent attackers from creating a fake version of the site, and convey trust to users.

An SSL certificate helps to secure information such as:

  • Login credentials
  • Credit card transactions or bank account information
  • Personally identifiable information — such as full name, address, date of birth, or telephone number
  • Legal documents and contracts
  • Medical records
  • Proprietary information

Cybersecurity risks continue to evolve distinguishing a safe site from a potentially dangerous one will help internet users avoid scams and protect their personal data from cybercriminals.
