We are proud to announce that SSL247® has been ranked in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2015 – a prestigious program that formally recognised SSL247® as one of the fastest growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Last year, online spending during the Christmas period rose by an average 2.2% YoY and 30% of those were made from a mobile device, compared to just 8.9% in 20131. This is set to continue in 2015, where a further annual rise of +13.8% in online spending is expected – approximately $349.20bn. With Christmas just around the corner this is welcoming news; however recent high-profile hacks like Ashley Madison and TalkTalk have left online shoppers hesitant – 43% of shoppers are worried over online security and 80% of shoppers would cancel the entire transaction if a security warning appears.
Security experts are strongly urging website owners to ensure their SSL certificates are using the SHA-2 algorithm, following the successful “Freestart Collision” on SHA-1 .
