We have recently extended our SSL secure connections!
Don’t worry if this means absolutely nothing to you! You are in the majority :0)
We already had SSL certification installed on the payments section of our site to protect our customers information.
We have now extended this to ensure that the entirety of our site is fully protected from cyber attacks.
SSL is the backbone of our secure Internet and it protects your sensitive information as it travels through cyber space. The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it.*
This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate.*
When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This protects it from hackers and identity thieves. In addition to encryption, a proper SSL certificate also provides authentication. This means you can be sure that you are sending information to the right server and not to a criminal’s server.*
With cyber-attacks becoming more prevalent, Greyhounds proactive approach means that our customers can have additional piece of mind while they are browsing our website.
