(The Hosting News) – Trust Guard, a leading website security company, recently released a video (trust-guard.com) to help consumers fight identity theft. The video, which was created for educational purposes, illustrates what Trust Guard believes to be the most important steps in protecting sensitive information online.
The video is short, lasting only four minutes and twenty-two seconds, yet as Trust Guard Co-Founder Dave Brandley says, “The video is comprehensive. In only a few minutes we’ve thoroughly covered the concept in a way that is easy for everyone to understand. We tried leaving out as much jargon as possible so it can truly reach every audience”.
The video covers three main topics: Protecting your computer with anti-virus software, looking for an SSL Certificate, and watching for website security scanning. Each concept is broken down with visual aids. “Internet security is something that even professionals misunderstand” says Brandley, “which is why hacking is becoming an increasing problem. When even the technology savvy don’t understand security, it’s not surprising that in general consumers know very little too”.
The video’s narrator explains the difference between an SSL Certificate and website security scanning, “…picture an SSL certificate as a big armored truck; like the ones banks use to move money safely from one place to another…Imagine that big armored truck taking your precious personal data and traveling safely from your computer all the way through the internet maze to the website you want to buy from. It’s a comforting image, but what happens when the armored truck gets to the website? Is the website itself safe? The fact is that an SSL Certificate and lock are only the beginning…”. The video goes on to explain that a SSL Certificate and Website Security Scanning are very different, yet equally important in protecting sensitive information.
Trust Guard’s video concludes with a “Double your Money Back Guarantee” (trust-guard.com) if their service doesn’t both protect a website and increase sales. Brandley concluded, “we love having a company that helps people be more safe and secure. We’re very confident in our products and what we do, and that’s why we can offer the money back guarantee”.
