Websites, well-functioning websites, are the lifeblood of many businesses. Today’s prevailing opinion is that your site should be protected with HTTPS (Hypertext Transport Protocol Security). HTTPS helps prevent prowlers from interfering with the communications between your website and your viewers’ browsers. Those interferences can range from harmless cookies, to annoying ads to malicious intruders.
While this level of security was, in the past, important for any site collecting sensitive information, today the need goes beyond that. Aside from providing critical security in today’s ever-changing cyber-active world, HTTPS is a requirement for many new browsers and applications. These sites are increasingly seeing better results in
- Consumer trust
- Browser compatibility
- Faster load time
- Search rankings
Hence, in addition to the encryption, data integrity and authentication measures, HTTPS is important for both the functionality and usability of today’s sites. Do you know the steps involved in migrating your site to HTTPS standards? GMS is happy to help.
