The Internet enables virtually any business to market their products globally, but how do you ensure that your customers’ information stays protected?  Through SSL certificates.  Take a look at this video for a brief description of how SSL provides security for both you and you customers.

SSL, or secure socket layer, is security protocol which performs two functions: authenticating your website as a legitimate business, and encrypting connections between the customer and your server.  This prevents unauthorized parties from accessing sensitive information such as order details, shipping info, or credit card numbers.
