SSL Shopping?

The Internet and the data provided on the Internet have become a primary source for research, news, and shopping for much of today’s society.  But how much of that data is real and how can you be certain your financial data is transmitted securely.   Identify theft is not only prominent from a personal level; corporate identity theft has now become too common in today’s electronic society.  In regards to Internet communication, a corporation can take steps to ensure their customers they are who they say they are.   Online merchants can also give their customers the peace of mind that their personal data remains just that.  SSL certificates have been around for a number of years, but buying the right one from the right supplier can be frustrating.   The website SSL Shopper (www.sslshopper.com) is a great place to read reviews from many of the popular SSL providers while also providing easy to follow wizards to find the right SSL for you or your business.  Give your customers the peace of mind that comes with providing your services on the Internet, start using an SSL certificate today.

If you have already purchased an SSL certificate but are having problems with the configuration, don’t worry, SSL Shopper has a number of tools to assist.  I spent a number of hours troubleshooting a publicly assigned cert before finding the SSL Verification Utility.
