The core benefits of SSL Certificates for your online business are,
SSL Protects Data :
SSL is a certificate that protects server-client communication by encrypting the data. You can also define it as in simple words “A data is locked, where it can be opened only by the right owner”. Sensitive data such as ID, password, code etc need to be handled with utmost care as there is a pack of hackers to hack it but SSL protects or saves you from these foreign attacks. The SSL encrypts the data thus leaving the hackers to count stars.
Affirmation Of Your Identity :
Authentication to websites is provided by SSL. As far as web security is concerned identity verification is one among the main aspect. There are people who have been duped and lost thousands of dollar due to fake websites, this is where SSL certificates come as a lifesaver. In order to install SSL certificates certain validation process by CA (Certificate Authority) has to be done by verifying you and your organizations’ identity. SSL directs you to the real website and saves users from fraudsters.
Better Search Engine Ranking:
Everyone wants to be in top order list of Google search engine ranking. Google has made changes in its algorithm enabling priority to HTTPs-enabled website. In researches, a strong correlation was found between HTTPS and higher search engine rankings.
