Today, there is a cutthroat competition in every business industry. To survive in that competition, every company tries most of or all the marketing tactics. Customers even today have become quite smart and so they don’t just trust what you say. If they want to purchase a product or service, the first thing they do is going online to research about your product/service.
Customers visit the company website, search for your products/services, compare them with your competitors, observe the other customer reviews and then take a decision. Therefore, it has become mandatory for every business to go online and have a professional website and other web applications.
But as all web applications are exposed to internet, there is always a risk to the security of these web applications. Dreamworth Solutions understand the importance of security of your web applications and therefore we develop and design your website with keeping security in mind. Therefore, we provide the https security to your website.
Security with HTTPS
What is HTTPS?
HTTPS stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure, which is the secure version of HTTP. HTTPS is nothing but the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are linked to. The 'S' in HTTPS means 'Secure', which shows that all the interactions between your browser and the website are encrypted.
You may be selling product or service on your website and therefore there must be some online payment options after the purchase. These online transactions may include online banking, debit/credit card details, online shopping order forms, etc. It is very important to protect these online transactions as they are highly confidential. So, HTTPS helps to protect all your confidential information, your interactions, etc. from any type of threat. Web browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome also show a padlock icon in the address bar to visually show that a HTTPS connection is in effect.
Working of HTTPS:
There are two secure protocols i.e. SSL which means Secure Sockets Layer and TLS which means Transport Layer Security. Generally, HTTPS pages use one of these secure protocols to encrypt interactions. An asymmetric Public Key Infrastructure i.e. PKI System is used by SSL and TLS protocols. In order to encrypt interactions or communications, this system uses two keys – a public key and a private key.
An asymmetric system uses two 'keys' to encrypt communications, a 'public' key and a 'private' key. Anything encrypted with the public key can only be decrypted by the private key and vice-versa. The private key is kept strictly secured and only owner of the private key can access it. In case of a website, the private key remains strongly installed on the web server. On the other hand, the public key can be given to anyone who needs to decrypt the information encrypted by the private key.
Dreamworth solutions care for your business and so provide the https security to your online store. We request a HTTPS connection to your webpage after which the website sends it SSL certificate to your browser. This certificate consists of the public key required to start the secure session. Depending on the initial exchange, your browser and the website then start the SSL handshake, which entails the creation of shared secrets to set up an exclusively secure connection between yourself and the website.
During a HTTPS section, when a trusted SSL digital certificate is used, your audience can see a padlock icon in the browser address bar. After installing an extended validation certificate on your website, the address bar will turn green as shown below.
Over usual HTTP connections, all the interactions are in plain text and can be read by any hacker. If the interaction is something about online transaction, debit/credit card details, order form, etc., the information can be easily hacked. So, in order to secure your website from the hackers, Dreamworth Solutions offer you a HTTPS connection with which all your communications are securely encrypted. Even if a hacker tried and succeeded to break into the connection, he would not be able decrypt any of the data which passes between you and the website.
So, if you are worried about the security of your online business, don’t panic. Dreamworth solutions is always there for you to offer you top quality security services for your web applications through https security. The https security that we offer secures your customer information like credit/debit card details, which can be encrypted but not decrypted. Apart from this, if we offer https security to your website, your visitors will verify you as a registered business, which will increase your brand value. As customers prefer completing purchases from sites that use https, you must consider it important to have https security for your website.
