Enterprise SSL

Need to protect your website? Enterprise SSL certificates are available to all Florida State University departments and organizations with a Web presence. SSL certificates create an encrypted connection so data can be transmitted safely and securely. All websites that transmit sensitive information-such as private or protected information need to be encrypted via an SSL certificate. Even if site's don't transmit sensitive data, having an enterprise SSL certificate will ensure website visitors that the site is verified by a trusted third-party.

The certificates are bonded and insured, use 2048-bit encryption and support multiple platforms, including IIS and Apache and others. All University departments and organizations are requested to use the centrally funded enterprise SSL solution to maintain a stronger website security posture. The enterprise solution notifies departments a month in advance before the SSL certificates are to expire.
