Today’s online consumers are more security-savvy than ever, and they won’t stay on a site they don’t trust. That’s why a high-assurance certificate from a reliable internet security provider is critical to your success as an online business—and that’s where Secure Socket Layer (SSL/TLS) certificates come in. According to the Symantec 2016 Internet Security Threat Report, SSL/TLS remains at the heart of online privacy, authentication and encryption. SSL/TLS certificates help websites create a secure line of communication across the internet so that every bit and byte of data is protected by a process that visitors can trust.
