Secured Socket Layer Certification Market in the US 2016-2020

About the Secured Socket Layer (SSL) Certification Market in the US

SSL is a paradigm technology for the secure transmission of data between a client (web browser) and a server (web server).

  • SSL creates an encrypted link between a web browser and a web server, which allows secure data transmission.
  • It is a security protocol that uses algorithms to determine variables of the encryption for both the link and data that is being transmitted.
  • It ensures the secure transmission of sensitive information such as credit or debit card numbers, login credentials, and confidential information.
The encryption process includes the use of a public key and a private key to encrypt the data, which is known as the SSL handshake process. The SSL handshake process securely exchanges data used by both the client and server. The server responds to the browser with a request to begin communication by using the master keys and parameters.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the secured socket layer (SSL) certification market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 24.33% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Secured Socket Layer Certification Market in the US 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the secured socket layer certification market in the US: Comodo, DigiCert, Entrust Datacard, GlobalSign, GoDaddy, and Symantec.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Namecheap, Network Solutions, Nexcess.Net, SSL.com, Starfield Technologies, Verizon, Volusion, and ZNetLive.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend spurring growth in this market is the increasing adoption of IoT. IoT facilitates better connectivity with SSL between devices, systems, and services and resolves critical situations such as information tampering. The technology will be integrated with advanced features in the future, which will improve its performance and lead to its increased adoption.”

According to the report, one driver fostering growth in this market is the need to boost website ranking on google. In the US, 80% of the consumers are most likely to trust SSL-protected websites. Google launched the HTTPS in August 2014, which provides a ranking boost to websites. It encouraged webmasters to shift their websites from HTTP to HTTPS. The website ranking system works on a real-time basis. If any new HTTPS URLs are indexed by Google, then it is observed as a boosted ranking immediately. The ranking depends on URLs and is not based on the entire website.

Further, the report states that the slow SSL response time will pose a significant challenge for the vendors. The performance of the site depends on how SSL will affect a site's load time, user experience, and SEO ranking. During SSL handshake, the browser has to wait for the certificate to be issued by the CA, which will affect load time. The user should be careful when choosing the CA, so that the network latency of the site does not lower the performance due to data complexities.
