You can look at Symantec Endpoint Protection:

Also, SSL would encrypt the traffic between client/server so depending on what your server is doing (transactions?) this is something you would want to use.

It is simply for encrypting communication between client and server. If you're not concerned with the privacy of the data being exchanged between client/server than you don't need to use SSL. But otherwise, data is being transitted in clear text and can easily be sniffed.
