An SSL certificate is an X.509 public key certificate that is awarded based on strict, industry-leading authentication measures. Extended Validation SSL certification is the most effective defense against phishing scams.
SSL certification authenticates the identity of a website and enables up to 256-bit encryption for online transactions and interactions. When you interact with the website, your browser accesses the Author-it Cloud server's digital certificate and establishes a secure connection. All data transferred via this connection is scrambled in a form that is indecipherable until the appropriate decryption mechanism is applied.
