SSL/TLS Certificates Market

SSL/TLS Certificates Market

The 2015 SSL/TLS certificate industry generated more than $1 billion in global revenues for certificate authorities (CA). The industry may be at an inflection point. What augers well for CAs is the Web browsers believe that the SSL/TLS certificate installation and procedure is the most secure way to ensure the safe fully encrypted Web session for Web visitors and Web site administrators alike. However, the availability of free domain-validated certificates could undermine the prices of all types of SSL/TLS certificates.
