From professional services and hospitality to healthcare and retail, businesses thrive when they have fast, reliable Internet connections. You need reliable connections to send sales transactions, upload files, transmit payroll data, and take advantage of cloud-based applications for sales, finance, and shipping. Then remember all of the different devices in your office – like mobile phones, wearables, tablets, and even desktop phones – and the need becomes even greater.
In today's digitalized economy, web applications and the browsers that connect
to them predominantly rely on the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security
(TLS) protocols to encrypt sensitive business information and personally identifiable
information (PII) – such as customers’ credit card details, user account passwords,
corporate sales and payroll data, etc. – before sending them securely over the internet.
SSL/TLS encryption ensures information transmitted over the internet through e-mails,
e-commerce and online banking transactions and a myriad of cloud and online services
are kept secure.
