People are spending more time and sharing more personal information online than ever, but website security practices have not kept up. Millions of users are being unknowingly exposed to threats simply by visiting unsecured web pages, and tools like Firesheep make it incredibly easy for an attacker to “sidejack” user accounts without knowing their passwords. Organizations can no longer afford to remain complacent; the industry has reached a tipping point where it must change in order to preserve end-to-end trust and consumer confidence, and to mitigate the risk of costly data security breaches.
Always On SSL is a necessary website security measure that protects users from arrival to login to logout, making it safer to search, share and shop online. Always On SSL is the only effective way to stop Firesheep and other HTTP session hijacking attacks.* Many of the world’s biggest websites, including Facebook, Google, PayPal, and Twitter, have successfully implemented Always On SSL.
As the leader in online trust, Symantec secures more than one million Web servers worldwide and can help you implement Always On SSL for your website to reduce risk and increase consumer confidence. 93 of the 100 largest SSL-using financial institutions in the world and 75 percent of the 500 largest e-commerce sites in North America rely on Symantec to secure their websites.** Symantec's authentication practices, audited annually by KPMG, are based on rigorous reputation qualification measures to establish online credibility
