Online transactions account for billions of dollars of sales each year. How do online sellers assure that customer transactions are secure? How do they help prevent their customers from being victims of identification theft?
Online sellers use SSL technology. SSL technology combines two techniques to keep credit card and demographic information private: Private-public keys and encryption.
SSL certificates assure that the purchaser and the vendor are transacting only with each other. Through a complex process, keys are passed to each other which assures that they are who they say they are. Secondly, the actual information (data) that is being transmitted is encrypted at 128-bits, an encryption level that is almost impossible to break.
Web-sites that implement SSL certificates must purchase the certificates from a reputable vendor. These vendors implement the technology that protect the transaction data. You can easily identify a secure transaction by the lock icon at the bottom right of the browser.
N.O.R.A.D. Inc. is now a proud vendor of the two leading SSL certificate companies:
- Network Solutions
Verisign has long been the leader in secure transactions. It’s SSL certificate service is well recognized as the number one source.
Network Solutions is also known as a leader in providing Internet security products. Recently, Network Solutions has entered the SSL certificate market.
Both companies provide SSL certificates that are state-of-the-art. Both companies’ SSL certificates assure safe, secure, private transactions. The main differences are that Verisign is the “granddaddy” of SSL vendors, and Network Solutions provides SSL certificates at a substantially lower price. N.O.R.A.D. supports both. Which one to use? You decide.
