Benefit 8: Secure Transactions
Build secure online stores with 128-bit encryption to prevent unauthorized eavesdropping on electronic data. All of the Business Catalyst hosting plans include secure (https://) pages, password-protected secure zones, and support for popular payment-gateway providers to facilitate secure store transactions (see Figure 8).
Figure 8 Configure online stores to add your client's payment gateway accounts.
Since secure pages are included with the hosting services, you don't need to purchase or update SSL certificates. Customers also are more likely to enter their payment information when they see that the store pages are secure. Your clients will have the peace of mind of knowing that payment information is encrypted and processed by industry-standard payment vendors to protect their customers' credit card details.
