An SSL is essential to protect
your clients' confidential information, such as credit card
data and social security numbers. Many of your visitors will
not complete an online data form without verifying that
protection is provided by a valid SSL certificate.
SSL stands for "Secure Sockets Layer". Used by most commerce
servers on the World Wide Web, this high-level security
protocol protects the confidentiality and security of data
while it is being transmitted through the internet. Based on
RSA Data Security's public-key cryptography, SSL is an open
protocol that is the online industry security standard.
