Use Cases > SSL Certificates and TLS Monitoring

Monitor Your SSL and TLS Certificates

Avoid disruption to your website and comply with secure encryption standards. Websites need SSL certificates to verify website ownership, keep data secure and convey trust to users. 

What is an SSL Certificate? 

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate is a security protocol that ensures privacy and data integrity, while also providing authentication of the website. SSL certificates are used to encrypt traffic between web servers and browsers to prevent eavesdropping or tampering with information during transmission over public networks such as the Internet. 

How WebOrion helps

Monitor Your SSL Certificates to Avoid Disruptions 

If your SSL certificate expires, visitors to your website will encounter a message,’ Your connection is not private’. To avoid this disruption to your services, get early reminders on expiry dates with WebOrion Monitor. 


Check and Verify That the Updated TLS Encryption Protocol Is Used to Secure Your Transmission Channels 

Currently, at least TLSv1.2 and above are recommended. Older versions such as TLSv1.1 and below should no longer be supported on your important websites. 


Ensure the Cipher Suites Used in the TLS Protocols Are Secure 

Depending on the TLS version used, a cipher suite can contain the key exchange algorithm, authentication algorithm, bulk data encryption and MAC algorithm. There are 37 ciphers in TLSv1.2 and not all are secure. Our Monitor will scan for your cipher suites and give you the industry-recommended standards for your cipher suites.
