SSL security Hampshire

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is the current standard technology for security and its purpose is to encrypt the link between a web server and an Internet browser. This ensure that the data input into a website is securely transferred to the host’s servers and therefore remain private. Without SSL, customers risk their data being compromised or shared which could include sensitive information, personal details or even payment credentials. This is why it is important for websites to hold a SSL certificate and show the padlock logo so customers can be reassured they are using a verified website and any data they give cannot be viewed or accessed by anyone other than the owner of the site.
