Do you have an SSL certificate on your webshop or website? We have installed SSL certificates on all our services years ago already. We deal with a lot of sensitive data within our services. You may not realize it, but you do also.
Personally, we believe we have gone to far with terms about our online security. Nowadays, words like hacking are mentioned in the same breath as a DDOS attack. Even in broadcasts like the NOS News. Is there always somebody watching your internet traffic on shared WiFi at Starbucks? No, of course not. We are unnecessarily frightened when it comes to our online safety.
Is the average digital burglar really looking for information that you manage as an SME? No. It is not effective to put so much effort into the intrusion of your systems. But in addition to the safety considerations that do apply, there are certainly reasons to have an SSL certificate installed immediately if you have not yet done so. The subject SSL certificate feels a little hyped, but that does not make it less important.
It’s all about the green lock
It is time for an SSL certificate
It is time for an SSL certificate to secure your online services as an app, webshop or website if you have not already done so. It is important for several reasons to secure the connection between your visitor and you. The main reason is that nobody can see the traffic between your user and your server. Also some browsers nowadays give a “Not Safe” notification to webshop or website without an SSL certificate. Another important reason to have an SSL certificate installed immediately is because it is good for the findability of your webshop or websites. Having an SSL certificate improves your position with search engines like DuckDuckGo, Google and Bing.
