When it comes to your customer information, better safe than unsettling. 

1. Thinking Ahead

Brilliant Digital are thinking ahead and stepping up to the challenge of ensuring clients and their customers will be able to continue to transact securely online.

For all new work and with a rollout of conversions for existing clients not yet on HTTPS, Brilliant Digital is safeguarding their clients’ websites against increased hacking threats with this proactive move.

2. Customer confidence

Not everyone understands the difference between HTTPS and HTTP*, but everyone has experienced that sinking feeling when trying to process a transaction online and being bombarded with the error message: Insecure connection. It is better to be ahead of the disruption – customers’ trust is hard won. Ensuring customers know that all precautions have been taken to take care of the information they give us online is critical.

3. We have your back

A key component of the success of Brilliant Digital websites is the exceptionally high quality of coding that is used in the construction of websites. Our team of developers are perfectionists and insist on multiple levels of research to ensure seamless functionality.

4. Growing threat

Faced with increased risks online, the changeover to a more secure delivery is essential. Many content delivery services, cloud service providers and browsers are offering free security certification, favouring widespread security through encryption. Brilliant Digital anticipates that the push back from Browsers on unencrypted sites – read increased error messages –  will only increase. The change to HTTPS, is seen as essential and websites built with HTTP should be looking to convert.

5. How is HTTPS different from HTTP?

HTTP is the procedure used for the exchange of information on the Internet. Information shared in this way is easy to intercept.

HTTPS shares information that has been encrypted – this means the sender and receiver agree on a code for the exchange of information. In simple terms, the computer at each end of the exchange uses a SSL Certificate to decode the information. Anyone intercepting the information in between would not be able to decipher it.
