If you're like most folks in the e-commerce business, you're busy concentrating on selling. As long as the site's up, everything's fine.  Right?

With a brick and mortar, you don't really have to worry about the doors being removed or various rooms in the store being unexpectedly behind a locked door.  This can happen at any moment in the e-commerce world.

If you are not doing full SSL on both the front- and back-end of your site, you will soon be removed from ranking for lack of security.  If the SSL is not of the right type and level, the same is true.

BUT, did you know that SSL has a brother named TLS?  If you use Authorize.Net or similar payment gateways, your TLS level will soon determine whether or not they will process your order.

The latest buzzword often missed is Forward Secrecy.  Forward Secrecy enables secure conversations that are not dependent on the server's private key.  Most servers are NOT set up to handle this but, ours are.

Also, in the near future, we will be adding restrictions to who can be used as a provider of SSL certificates on our servers.  Just another way of protecting both your customers and you, our customers.

Want to see how your site scores?  Test your site's security status at Qualsys SSL Labs.  Not a customer? Just enter in the test block to see how we're doing.
