SSL is a security technology that provides encrypted link between the server and the browser of the customer. This secured connection ensures that all the data transmitted between the server and the browser remains private. It is used in lots of cases especially when online payments are made to protect the sensitive personal data like bank accounts, card numbers and so on.
