What is an SSL certificate?
An SSL certificate acts as third-party verification for a website’s security. It verifies the strength of the Secure Socket Layer encryption used when a user connects to the site and connects that encryption to the organization or individual that owns and maintains the website. SSL certification and validation are a necessary piece of web security for any business that collects information from its users.
Different SSL certificates provide different levels of security, depending on the level of protection and security features your website and its users need. You may be familiar with visual elements such as Site Seals, the HTTPS:// protocol appearing in the URL, but there are less-visible functions that help protect your website and visitors.
No matter what level of security you choose, your users will recognize that your site is safe, and that leads to greater trust in your brand online.

SSL Site Seal
The site seal offers visual proof of the security provided by your website’s SSL certificate. It’s so important, in fact, that it’s become the main reason many website owners and managers buy an SSL certificate as most web users know to look for it. Seals vary in appearance depending on the type of SSL certificate issued, but they all mean the same thing: your user’s data is protected.

The level of security provided by an SSL certificate is determined by the number of bits used to generate the encryption key. That key is then used to encrypt the data. Most of our SSL certificates use either 256-bit or 128-bit encryption, depending on the capabilities of web browser and server. Both 256- and 128-bit are industry standard for data protection.
