Did you know Google SSL requirements are being enforced by flagging sites without an SSL as unsafe in Chrome? This update goes beyond adding it to its list of ranking factors only. It will fundamentally change the way web users think about their online security.
SSL Certificates are designed to make users feel secure while using the internet. Without them, you could be jeopardizing your business, as well as your customer’s sensitive data.
An SSL certificate is a security certificate that once installed on a web server activates a secure connection between the browser the surfer is viewing the content on and the web server that the content is derived from initially.
SSL certificates help the web cut down on instances of cybercrime that are often performed through security loopholes in web browsers.
If the connection between the surfer’s web browser and web server are not secure through an SSL connection, a moderately skilled hacker could seize information, such as credit card numbers, as it is being typed into a form on an unsecured website.
