Website Security by AME – A Must Have!
COMPLETE SSL/TLS/HTTPS Security Encryption and 24/7/365 Protection Support
You might have seen websites opening up with HTTPS and a secure lock icon in the address bar. Clearly different from normal HTTP – the “S” stands for SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the necessary technology to encrypt your data and protect your network traffic. TLS (Transport Layer Security) is an updated version of SSL.
Google Chrome is one of the leading web browsers in use. With its 62nd updated version (Oct. 2017), each and every website without an SSL Security Certificate will be marked as unsecured web property and visitors will be asked to click on the proceed link at their own risk. Other web browsers have followed suit. Unfortunately, for many individuals and small businesses with websites and blogs, an annual SSL* Certificate starting at $150 together with the expense of professionally re-configuring a website to make proper use of it, has been somewhat cost prohibitive – until now.
*SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and, in short, it’s the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing criminals from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details. The two systems can be a server and a client (for example, a shopping website and browser) or server to server (for example, an application with personal identifiable information or with payroll information). It does this by making sure that any data transferred between users and sites, or between two systems remain impossible to read. It uses encryption algorithms to scramble data in transit, preventing hackers from reading it as it is sent over the connection. This information could be anything sensitive or personal which can include credit card numbers and other financial information, names and addresses.TLS (Transport Layer Security) is just an updated, more secure, version of SSL. We still refer to our security certificates as SSL because it is a more commonly used term.
