Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – August 21, 2007 – Web hosting provider, domain name registration and services firm, Network Solutions, has released a new whitepaper on Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates, to examine the importance of overall SSL certificate security.
As a necessity for online business owners, valid SSL certificates protect web sites, so that online business owners do not run the risk of exposing sensitive customer information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers or passwords to identity thieves. An SSL certificate safeguards the customer’s information from outside observation or interception by encrypting it. Protecting the exchange of personal information between the customer and the owner’s business makes customers more comfortable transacting business with the owner, ultimately leading to higher sales conversations.
The whitepaper also sheds light on the key facts and considerations that a small business owner should keep in mind both when using an SSL certificate and choosing between SSL certificate providers. Many online business owners need to learn everything about SSL certificates ranging from what an SSL is and how it works to the benefits of using SSL certificates. Network Solutions realizes that knowing the answers to these questions is vital to the success of any online business, and wants to ensure that they make using an SSL Certificate simple and affordable for all web sites.
In addition to explaining the purpose and benefits of an SSL certificate, SSL Certificates: A Simple Solution to Web Site Security, explores different types of SSL certificates, the visual indicators that the new EV certificate uses to identify a secure site, and how to obtain a security certificate from SSL certificate providers. This whitepaper is especially helpful for those just learning how to take their business online securely.
Jeff Grosman, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing and Management at Network Solutions offered, ”An SSL Certificate is an absolute ‘must’ for any online business dealing with sensitive information. Network Solutions wants to ensure that all of our customers and all interested small businesses are as educated as possible on why an SSL Certificate is important for their business, as well as which type of SSL is best for them.”
