Internet security never looked the same after Netscape Communications created the SSL certificate in 1994. Looking at the Internet’s growing popularity then, it was easy to see it becoming a dangerous medium in not-so-distant future. Developers at Netscape took the cue and started putting in the effort to utilize strong encryption algorithms in the forming of an SSL certificate, to make sure the important data stored on the web is only seen by the intended parties. Thanks to their earnest efforts; today, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates have become an integral element of website security, especially in case of e-commerce and banking websites.

 

SSL certificates are issued by Certificate Authorities (CAs), who manage security credentials and public keys for the actual message encryption.

We have an important update to share with you regarding Symantec Network Access Control. At Symantec, we actively monitor security threats and trends in the industry, and after careful review and consideration, we have made the decision to End of Life (EOL) Symantec Network Access Control. The growth of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the integration of access control technology into networking devices offered by most network hardware vendors have reduced the need for standalone NAC solutions. The discontinuation of Symantec Network Access Control will free up valuable resources to focus on our endpoint security offerings, including advanced threat protection and protection from newer security risks that impact your enterprise today.

Moving forward, Host Integrity, a feature of Symantec Network Access Control, will be integrated into a future release of Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP). Customers who have SEP entitlement can continue to use the Host Integrity feature....
