What is SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)?
SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, a global standard security technology developed by Netscape in 1994. It creates an encrypted link between a web server and a web browser. The link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remains private and secure and is recognised by millions of consumers by a secure padlock which appears in their browser.Top 3 Benefits
