What is an SSL certificate?

An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate authenticates a site’s identity and enables an encrypted connection between a browser and a web server. In essence, an SSL certificate allows for a “private conversation” that is exclusive to the two intended parties.

Adding SSL certificates to business websites reduces the risk of sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, passwords, usernames, and email addresses from being stolen or tampered with by hackers and identity thieves.

How to find out whether a website has an SSL certificate?

When it comes to identifying the presence of an SSL certificate, there are three visual clues:

  • 1. The icon of a padlock placed at the left of a URL
  • 2. “https” URL prefix instead of “http”
  • 3. A trust seal

Why do you need an SSL certificate?

Having an SSL certificate is important to secure user data, verify website ownership, prevent attackers from creating a fake version of the website, and garner user trust.

An SSL certificate becomes essential if a website asks users to “sign in”, enter “personal details”, such as credit card numbers, or view confidential information such as health benefits or financial information. SSL certificates help maintain the privacy of online interactions, and assure the users that the website is authentic, and it will be safe for them to share any sensitive information.

In addition, an SSL certificate is required for an HTTPS web address, which makes having it all the more important for business websites. HTTPS is the secure form of HTTP, which is encrypted by SSL. Most browsers tag HTTP sites, i.e. those without an SSL certificate, as “not secure”, which sends a clear signal to users that the site may not be trustworthy, which can directly translate into a loss of business.

An SSL certificate helps secure all sorts of sensitive information, such as:

Primary managed services include-
