How important is your data to you? One problem when you run a network is securing data that is being sent between applications across an untrusted network, such as the internet.  Interactive Systems can integrate TLS (Transport Layer Security) / SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to authenticate servers and clients and then use it to encrypt messages between the authenticated parties for your business.

 

 

TLS and SSL encrypts the segments of network connections at the Transport Layer end-to-end. TLS protocol allows client/server applications to communicate across a network in a way designed to prevent eavesdropping and tampering. TLS provides endpoint authentication and communications confidentiality over the Internet using cryptography.

 

The most common method for using SSL/TLS is through the access of secured web pages. The picture below explains how users connect to a website protected by SSL/TLS, which will secure any private data from being seen by anyone outside of this secure connection.

 

Security of data in transit over the Internet becomes increasingly necessary because of steadily growing data volume and importance. Nowadays, every user of a public network sends various types of data, from email to credit card details daily, and he would therefore like them to be protected when in transit over a public network. To this end, a practical SSL protocol has been adopted for protection of data in transit that encompasses all network services that use TCP/IP to support typical application tasks of communication between servers and clients.
