, a leading provider of web solutions including managed services, SharePoint hosting, Windows and Linux web hosting, and Microsoft exchange email services is pleased to announce that in response to unprecedented customer demand, it is now offering its SSL4Life as a regular feature in all annual Microsoft SharePoint Hosting accounts. The program which was initiated on February 6, 2009, has proven to be one of the most popular small business promotions run by the company. The service underscores the Alentus commitment to customer security by enabling Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption on all SharePoint sessions. This technology protects all of the clients information transmitted over the Internet by utilizing complex encryption to encode and decode data between the client computer and the Alentus network.
The promotion features a free SSL Certificate on all annual Alentus SharePoint hosting plans for the duration the SharePoint site is hosted with Alentus. In conjunction with the certificate, Alentus also provides a proprietary security product which forces the users browser to the SSL protected HTTPS URL on both public pages as well as pages requiring login authentication. By adding the security of a 128-bit encryption as well as forced HTTPS URL browsing, businesses can further protect the transfer of their information via a hosted SharePoint solution.
Online security is one of the most important issues to our customers. SSL4Life brings enterprise level security to even the smallest customer, said Darren Hauch, VP of Operations. By adding this feature as a free service to an already extensive list of components on our annual SharePoint hosting plans, we took another step in improving customer security without added cost. The increase in customer demand made it clear to us that SSL needed to be a mandatory part of the SharePoint service. We will continue to seek innovative ways to extend our competitive advantage in the small business market, and have quite a few new programs set to roll out in the coming months.
