SSL Certificate:-

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a compulsory certification for every website that deals with online payments or consider the information exchanged between the website and the online visitors as extremely important. E-commerce websites that sell goods or services to their clients, accept payments online from their customers, require high level of security installed in their server. This helps prevent hackers or malwares to intercept vital information.

Basically, SSL certificates are data files which bind a cryptographic key with the details of an organization, through a digital process. When installed on a web server it ensures secure connections between the browser and the web server. Usually, an SSL certificate is used to secure the credit card transactions, logins and data transfer. However, in the recent past, it has become a norm to use an SSL certificate while securing the browsing of the different social media websites.

It’s easily noticeable that websites like PayPal, Facebook or different banking websites have an ‘httpss’ connection as opposed to the standard ‘https’. The additional ‘s’‚ appended at the end of the https, stands for secured. An SSL certificate is a proof for the online visitors that the website is genuine and the services are authentic.

Keeping the extreme demand of SSL certificates in mind, Ricoh offers SSL certification. They also offer complete assistance and detailed advice on what type of certificate would be most suitable according to the requirements of a website. The SSL encrypts the information that is exchanged between the website and the browser and is decrypted only at the final end points. So, even if the data is intercepted by any malicious malware or human being midway, it won’t be possible to decrypt the information or tamper with it.

At Ricoh, we believe SSL certification is a must for every website as it helps build the customers’ confidence. Apart from keeping the services perfectly safe and secured, this also helps encourage the visitors turn into customers. However, it should also be kept in mind that an SSL certificate doesn’t protect a website from identity theft, completely. However, Ricoh’s SSL certificates definitely help reduce the chances of data theft or security breaches to a great extent.

At Ricoh, we consider SSL certificates to be one of the most important components of running an online business. This is important because even a single SSL certificate that has expired, can affect the entire system on which the data is stored. Furthermore, it can affect the other services on which the security of your business critical data depends to a great extent.
