CU*Answers Web Services Moving All Shared Web Hosted Credit Union Websites to SSL Encryption at No Additional Cost
Over the course of the next several weeks, CU*Answers Web Services will be adding SSL certificates to all shared hosted credit union sites at NO ADDITIONAL COST to your credit union! If your credit union already purchased an SSL certificate, you may continue to use it. If you don’t have an SSL certificate, CU*Answers will be providing one via the Let’s Encrypt Certificate service Authority!
Why You Should Have an SSL Certificate for Your CU Website
Not only is SSL encryption more secure in terms of transmitting information between website and end user, browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have begun to prioritize SSL encrypted websites, and point out when they’re not encrypted. Chrome, for example will indicate that the website is “Not secure” if it’s using the older HTTP encryption; a label you definitely don’t want to have associated with your credit union!
What Do You Need To Do?
Unless your credit union would like to use a different SSL certificate provider, you don’t need to do anything. You may just take notice your website switch from HTTP to HTTPS protocol as we roll it out to hosted websites.
