More and more hackers are targeting large companies that seem to be secure on the outside. Read about the motives behind these hackers and what companies are doing to protect themselves.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a security technology which establishes an encrypted link between a server (e.g. website) and a client (e.g. browser). It allows sensitive information and login details to be transmitted securely over the Internet. SSL is a security protocol that determines variables of the encryption for the link and the data transmitted. It protects people’s data, especially when sending confidential information and doing online transactions such as online purchases and banking.
If there is one thing an Internet entrepreneur should take extremely seriously its security. This is where Secure Socket Layer (SSL) on websites plays a major role. Online theft is prevalent, and who knows what future security breaches are possible if domain resellers and their clients do not take extra precautions.
Anything that involves data transfer is susceptible to online theft. It is highly recommended on websites that sell domain names to implement SSL to secure servers when processing customer data and credit card payments.
The purpose of SSL is to provide an encrypted link between the server and web browser when customers are purchasing products or services. This technology ensures that the data exchange between two servers cannot be read nor deciphered by hackers who may attempt to tap between the web browser and remote server.
