Doing your holiday shopping? Here are some quick tips for staying safe online: 1) Make sure site is secure. Look for some kind of trust mark such as the VeriSign Check. Click on the check to ensure the check is authentic because a fake site can also fake the seal. A new window should open and make sure the organization listed is the business you're expecting and the site listed matches the URL of the site you are transacting with. 2) Look at the browser address bar before entering any personally identiable information. The URL should start with 'https' with the 's' meaning 'secure' versus 'http...

We recently added some visual uplift to a few of our SSL pages to augment the textual copy. Given that different users consume content differently through a combination of text and/or graphics, we wanted to ensure we were designing for this. For instance, for those of you wondering How Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Works, we have put together a visual of the three ways SSL protects your Website and customers, along with diagrams of how encryption and authentication works.

200161322-001.jpgThe economy is hitting businesses hard all round and certainly no one is immune. However, there are some companies which are faring better than others even in the current harsh economic climate. Ranked as one of the ten IT vendors defying the gloom and doom is none other than VeriSign.

Even in tough economics times, internet security is still critical. In fact, some might argue it's even more so important given that crime rates have been known to increase in periods of economic downturn. Online identity theft and fraud are on the rise and undertaking precautionary measures to safeguard online identity is key. Whether it's outfitting a Website with an SSL certificate for encrypting transactions or a Secured Seal trust mark or a mechanism for...

Imagine trying to purchase something on a Website and getting a message that the secure connection has failed and the site is using an invalid certificate. Would you think twice about proceeding or even abandon your purchase? Probably, yes. That is what happens when a site has an invalid SSL certificate. It may be that the cert has expired or just wasn't setup correctly.

And what does this do to the user experience on these sites? Well, not a lot of good. It doesn't instill much confidence in the user; not to mention, it can inhibit the user's ability to access your site altogether. It also presents a security threat as the user's information may be vulnerable and prone to hacking and phishing scams which can become a liability for the company. It can also result in downtime for the site. In the end, both the company and customer loses. So, to prevent this from happening to your site, keep those SSL certs current.
