SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) provides security for data sent to and from a website. Technically speaking, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the accepted protocol used to protect data that is sent between a web site and a web browser. An encrypted SSL connection requires that all data passed between the browser and the web site server be encrypted by the sender and decrypted by the receiver. SSL can prevent unauthorized parties from gaining access to sensitive, confidential, or personal information such as a phone numbers or addresses.
Why is SSL useful? Secure connections become very important when a site gathers information through a web form. By placing the form in a secure directory, the form data will be encrypted when the user submits the form, thus protecting the data and the website visitor’s personal information.
However, it’s not enough to keep you completely protected.
The vast majority of banking and financial transactions take place on SSL-protected secure sites whose URLs begin with https:// instead of http://. But these sites only protect your confidential information from the point where you click the “send” button to deliver it to the internet.
They don’t protect the information you enter into your computer, while you are typing or before the information is sent.
What’s needed is protection of the information you enter into your computer. Software that blocks the malware’s ability to capture your confidential information from your keyboard, screen or webcam. A solution that protects you from the ever-growing SSL banker trojans that target your banking, buying and financial transactions.
You will have that protection. Beyond antivirus.
