SSL Report - Secure Sockets Layer

What does SSL Report mean?

Have you ever used your web browser and noticed a green lock next to the website URL? That lock signifies that you are on an SSL-compliant website. «SSL» stands for secure sockets layer and is a security measure that encrypts sensitive data on different websites. SSL Labs is an organization that offers comprehensive testing and reporting detailing how organizations are handling SSL on their client-facing websites and internal servers.

How is SSL Report compliance determined?

There isn’t actually an official set of compliance rules in order to become SSL Report-certified. Qualys SSL Labs uses an online diagnostic test that looks at the status of your overall SSL setup. This test grades your servers with a sliding letter grade scale and generates recommendations on how to improve your score after the test is complete. There aren’t any penalties enforced if you receive a bad score. However, a poor SSL certificate setup can lead to potential sanctions under other compliance regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, PIPEDA and more.

How does SSL Report data center and cloud hosting work?

Every TaxDome account features SSL-encrypted security. All of our accounts are run on our international network of SSL-encrypted data centers. Each one of these servers has been SSL-A certified by SSL Report.
