To Improve Website Security ADL Adds SSL Encryption
ADL has added SSL Certificates to our website to enhance the security of the website and the download material.
Why SSL Certificate? SSL is the standard used to secure the Internet and it protects sensitive information as it travels across the world. It keeps the Internet from being ruled by anarchists and criminals and provides many direct benefits to our clients.
Benefits of SSL: Encrypt Sensitive Information
The primary reason SSL certificates are used, is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the computer of the intended recipient can understand the messages/data. This is important because the information sent via the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the sending server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information, if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate.
When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server sending the information and the recipient that requested the information. This protects the data from hackers and identity thieves.
