Startup launches subscription model for buying SSL certificates
A Utah-based startup has launched a subscription model for buying SSL certificates, an essential but at times onerous task.
SSL and its successor, TLS (Transport Layer Security), are cornerstones of Web security, encrypting data exchanged between two machines. It underpins virtually every kind of transaction that requires privacy on the Web, from email to e-commerce. It’s signified by “https” in the URL bar of a browser.
Companies and organizations are using more and more SSL certificates as the need for secure machine-to-machine communication has increased with cloud computing, virtualization and mobile devices.
