Security Measures We Take:
Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
eCredable.com SSL certificates support both industry-standard 128-bit which is used by banks to safeguard sensitive data and high-grade 256-bit SSL encryption to protect online transactions. The actual encryption strength on a secure connection is determined by the user’s browser and the server that the website resides on. Encryption strength is measured in key length or the number of bits in the key. To decipher an SSL communication, one would need to generate the correct decoding key. 128-bit and 256-bit keys involve 2,128 and 2,256 possible combinations respectively, rendering the encrypted data virtually impossible to crack by an unauthorized party.
