You’re probably asking yourself, what is an SSL Certificate, and why is it important?
An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate is the prevailing safety technology for incorporating an encrypted link amongst a web server and a web browser. It is designed to protect all forms of data exchanged between website browsers (the user) and a website. Ensuring both privacy and integrity of the exchange. An SSL Certificate will also establish a secure connection for your website that will digitally connect to a cryptographic key.
SSL Certificates provide 3 core functions:
- Encrypts sensitive information When accessing a website, data is transferred from computers and servers in order to load a page. This data can be stored, which includes sensitive information such as credit card details for online shops and usernames & passwords for websites with login functions. Activating an SSL Certificate for a website disrupts the data storage when transferred between servers and computers except for the one server the data is being transmitted to. Making an SSL Certificate a requirement for websites with online shop gateways or a membership feature.
- Protection from Cyber Hackers Cyber criminals are becoming ever more present and cunning within the digital world. According to Cybersecurity Ventures; “cybersecurity damages will cost the world over $6 trillion annually by 2021.” SSL Certificates act as the perfect foil to cyber criminals attempting to steal vital information whilst being transferred between computers and servers.
- Trust and Credibility Website users opening up your website and seeing a green “Secure” padlock feel a sense of safety, comfort and trust to browse your website. This boosts your business’ credibility not just with the user, but also with Google as an SSL Certificate will boost your search ability.
