Security

The Plus1% application is accessible through any web browser and is secured and encrypted with SSL 256 bit encryption provided by digicert.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client, usually a website and a browser. SSL allows sensitive information such as personal information in passports, medical records and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept data being sent between a browser and a web server they can see and use that information.

All people that login and engage with Plus1% will notice that the site begins with https rather than http. This means that when you transmit confidential information it is secure and this can be seen with the lock icon that comes with an SSL-secured website or green address bar that comes with an extended validation SSL-secured website.
