Secure your site with an SSL Certificate or be prepared to pay dearly in lost confidence and diminished sales.These days, consumers just aren't willing to submit ANY personal information to a Web site unless the site is protected by an SSL. Why? Because the Internet is crawling with hackers looking for valuable information to steal.According to Connecticut-based IT research firm Gartner, Inc.,"Data breaches were the leading cause of financial crimes against consumers in 2008." Their favorite means of stealing money? Payment card fraud.
The sad truth is, sending credit card numbers or other sensitive data over an unencrypted Internet connection is just asking for trouble. No wonder 15 percent of the U.S. Web shoppers surveyed have stopped shopping online altogether. Fear is up in the United Kingdom as well, with 41 percent of respondents to a recent survey saying security fears played a part in their decision to stop shopping online. Online retailers, airlines - even the U.S government's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) - has fallen victim to clever criminals scheming to steal identities, login credentials, credit card numbers or any other information they can turn into cash.
There is a simple solution: SSL Certificates. SSLs are the only effective way to secure your site against unauthorized interception of data - passwords, account numbers, social security numbers and more. That's why more and more Internet users are looking for the secure padlock icon or green browser bar before proceeding with a transaction. The cost of carelessness is just too high. At its simplest, an SSL Certificate is software that encrypts all data flowing to and from the Certificate holder's Web site. This makes all exchanges between the site and its visitors 100 percent private, whether the visitor is submitting a newsletter request or making a purchase.With a Starfield Technologies SSL Certificate, shoppers and site visitors need never worry that their name, address, credit card or bank account numbers will be intercepted by an outside party. All StarfieldTech SSLs feature 256-bit encryption, the highest level of encryption money can buy. A distinctive seal displayed on your site as well as the "https:" browser bar prefix show visitors they can safely submit data to your site.
But you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to secure your Web sites. Our SSL Certificates cost a fraction of what other SSL providers charge for exactly the same level of protection.
