SSL and Your Site

Google’s Chrome browser is now flagging all non-SSL websites as not secure. Sounds ominous but it is an easy fix. Before I get to the fix here is some background.

Google wants to make sure that you and I, the user of its products and services, feel safe and secure on the Internet and that you and I, owners of web sites, know the information submitted and downloaded from our sites is secure. By flagging sites that don’t have a valid SSL Certificate visitors are provided a warning.

To see this warning on a site that doesn’t have an SSL Certificate look for an “i” in a circle on the left side of the address bar. Click on the “i”. What you actually want to see in the place of this “i” is a green closed padlock.

You want visitors to your site to feel secure. You want them know that any forms they complete, any documents they download and passwords and credit cards they enter are securely submitted. 

What is an SSL Certificate?

An SSL Certificate is the standard protection protocol for all websites visited. It contains the following information:

  • Name of the holder
  • Serial number and expiration date
  • Copy of the certificate holder’s public key
  • Digital Signature of the certificate-issuing authority

Once installed all information submitted on your site is sent encrypted. This means your visitors will be confident the information they provide you is secure. Anyone trying to access it without permission (aka potential hacker) will be unable to read it.

Why you need an SSL Certificate

  1. Protects your customers information
  2. Protects you from cyber criminals and hackers
  3. Builds trust and credibility with your customers

In today’s online environment an SSL is a must. Call us today to secure your site.
