ClickPOS now offers128bit encrypted SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)

What is SSL? 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

Our web server will then be able to establish an encrypted link between our website and your web browser.

The complexities of the SSL protocol remain invisible to your customers. Instead their browsers provide them with a key indicator to let them know they are currently protected by an SSL encrypted session - the lock icon in the lower right-hand corner, clicking on the lock icon displays your SSL Certificate and the details about it. All SSL Certificates are issued to either companies or legally accountable individuals.

An SSL Certificate will contain our domain name, our company name, our address, our city, our state and our country. It will also contain the expiration date of the Certificate and details of the Certification Authority responsible for the issuance of the Certificate. When a browser connects to a secure site it will retrieve the site's SSL Certificate and check that it has not expired, it has been issued by a Certification Authority the browser trusts, and that it is being used by the website for which it has been issued. If it fails on any one of these checks the browser will display a warning to the end user letting them know that the site is not secured by SSL.

How will SSL affect my browing? 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is designed to protect your information by encrypting your information as it travel across from your web browser to our servers.
You will not notice any difference in the performace of ClickPOS. SSL simply offers peace of mind when it comes to sensitive information on the internet.
