PRESS RELEASE: Scaling SSL via Web PlatformsJanuary 11, 2017
When the need to roll out SSL certificates across sites/ landing pages needed to be automated, DevHub solved this - years ago!
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. SSL technology has been around since 1994 - in response to concern over internet security. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
Adhering to web standards at scale is where web platforms can differ greatly. The real opportunities are for those (platforms) that can quickly and efficiently update websites/ landing pages (web experience) or quickly take advantage of new guidelines to press competitive advantages and leverage first mover lift.
There are many use cases of deploying SSL at scale including performance marketing companies aiming to increase workflow/ production efficiencies. Within DevHub - new domains registered can be auto provisioned with new SSL certificates, and the corresponding Site and/or Landing Page are live and serving secure pages within minutes.
Daniel Rust DevHub CTO/ co-Founder explains, "With one company - in 20 minutes we saw 20 new domains registered, new SSL certificates were auto-generated, and the Sites were live and serving secure pages within minutes. There is no reason with technologies like DevHub around not to use SSL everywhere at scale"
