Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 30, 2012
International hosting provider and SSL certificate authority Web HSP announced on Thursday that it has launched a new and improved online tool that helps website owners and resellers confirm that their SSL configurations are correct.
When SSL certificates are configured incorrectly, websites are at severe risk of attacks. By taking advantage of this highly effective tool, website owners can dramatically improve their website performance while providing more effective defense against these attacks. Recently, Web HSP expressed their intentions to implement these services in the United States & Canada
The tool is offered at no charge to customers, not just Web HSP clients. Customers simply enter the URL of the website they want to check, and after a quick scan, the user receives a rating with a detailed explanation of any problems discovered with their SSL certificate security, and how to remedy the issue in a timely manner.
The SSL Configuration Checker integrates the most advanced technology in the market currently. As a non-commercial research effort, the experienced technicians at Web HSP work tirelessly to understand how SSL is deployed, and how to make it better. CEO Doug Davs remarked, “More than 70 percent of websites using SSL are configured incorrectly, which results in poor performance and poor security.”
Management at Web HSP strongly believes the tool fills a demand in the marketplace as a user-friendly instrument to help administrators apply SSL seamlessly and securely. There are a multitude of other tools available, including an SSL Certificate Tester, and an SSL Checker tool.
Doug Davis went on to explain, “With the availability of an SSL configuration checker, Web HSP is adding context to SSL issues by explaining to our customers how best to configure SSL to reduce their risk and optimize performance. Our goal is to help all organizations reduce SSL-related risks, configuring SSL correctly is a crucial step in realizing the benefits of SSL. However, it’s often difficult for admins to find comprehensive guidance on how to accomplish this goal.”
