Protecting Your Website with Always on SSL

Protecting Your Website with Always on SSL

“Symantec protects the world’s information and is the global leader in security, backup, and availability solutions”.

With the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking as their primary mode of communication, people are spending more time online and are communicating much more than just credit card numbers. The threat landscape has evolved with the proliferation of botnets, malware, data loss, forged email, online fraud, and other security and privacy challenges. Unfortunately, web security practices have not always kept pace.

Always-On SSL is an approach to securing your website to mitigate attacks against your users. The goal is to extend SSL hardening beyond your own server and to your user’s browser so that you can both be assured of the security that SSL/TLS is supposed to provide. 

Everyone Else is Doing It, and So Should You
As online attacks become more frequent and easier to execute, organizations around the world are under increasing scrutiny to ensure that all online transactions involving confidential data are secure. Government officials and
privacy groups are pushing for companies to provide Always On SSL.

Ensure Correct Implementation of Your SSL Certificates
To enable HTTPS, you should use a valid SSL/TLS certificate from a third-party certificate authority (CA). While a self-signed certificate will encrypt communications between the user and website, only a certificate issued by a CA
tells your customers that the domain’s identity has been verified by a trusted source.

Enhance Security and Trust with Extended Validation Certificates
For stronger protection against exploits such as SSLStrip, the OTA recommends that websites consider deploying Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates. EV secured sites undergo a rigorous verification process established by the CA Browser Forum, a collaboration of more than 30 leading certification authorities
and browser software vendors.

This white paper discusses the imperative need for Always On SSL and the steps that you can take to deliver end-to-end protection to your users.
