SSL – Secure Socket Layer
Optimum Solutions now offers you the protection you need – whether you have a website or just emails.
Google now also requires websites to be secure and they have recently started listing websites as insecure connections if you do not have SSL enabled on your website.
What is SSL?
SSL is the acronym for Secure Socket Layer and is often used interchangeably with the term TLS – Transport Layer Security. Both are cryptographic protocols that help encrypt communications over a computer network. Typically, if a website wanted to encrypt the transmission of its data between the server and the client, they would purchase an SSL certificate that contains an encryption key that is placed on the server.
Why install SSL?
- Google will rank you higher.
- Safely accept credit cards and other sensitive information on your website.
- Increase customer confidence
- Protect sensitive information
- Connections is private

Remember – SSL is not an anti hacking system, you still have to have systems in place to protect your websites from hackers.
