Bleu IT website is secure…. should yours be too?

Most internet users are aware of the necessity to transact securely with websites for shopping and banking, but I’m sure that some of our more technical followers will be aware of the advantages of running a website via secure connections even when they are not for “transactions”.

Bleu IT’s website has been secure by default since December 2014, meaning that you can be sure you are accessing the official site and not a fake looking to dupe you in some way.

Securing websites is no longer an expensive process, with SSL certificates available for as little as $15, so there is little excuse for even the smallest company to avoid protecting their site visitors.

SSL certificates are available from dozens of vendors, but purchasers should still be careful as to where they buy from. SSL is notoriously difficult to deploy or renew without “taking down” a website or server for even the smallest discrepancy in the certificate information. Make sure that you pick an SSL certificate provider based on their support as well as their price. After sales support is worth its weight in gold if your businesses site is offline.
