What is SSL? What are its uses and how does it come in useful in our daily business. As we start out a new year, it is good to check the basics and whether they are secure. When it comes to remote desktops and distant working environments, cybersecurity matters are not going away. Thus, the questions of what SSL is, how we use it and how we make sure it works towards better cybersecurity seem fitting ones to consider. Come along with me to find out more.

What is SSL?

SSL, which stands for Secure Sockets Layer, is a protocol used to establish secure and encrypted communication between a user's web browser and a web server. Its successor, Transport Layer Security (TLS), is more commonly used today. The primary purpose of SSL/TLS is to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of data exchanged between a user and a website.

How Do SSL and TLS Work?

When you visit a website that uses SSL/TLS, your browser and the website's server engage in a process called the SSL/TLS handshake. This involves the exchange of cryptographic keys to establish a secure connection. Once you have established a connection, TSplus software encrypts the data transferred between your browser and the server. Consequently, it is much more difficult for unauthorized parties to intercept or tamper with your information.

What is the Purpose of SSL/TLS?

SSL/TLS is crucial for securing and preserving sensitive data, such as login credentials, personal information and financial transactions, during online communication. You can identify a secure connection through the "https://" prefix in the website's URL. Also, look out for the padlock symbol in the address bar of your browser.

How about SSL and TLS in TSplus Software?

In the context of TSplus and its services, implementing SSL/TLS is essential. Indeed, this technology secures remote connections, application publishing and other interactions between users and the TSplus platform. It adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring that data remains confidential and secure during your remote sessions and interactions with TSplus software.

Our work towards highly secure remote connections is also visible. Take for instance how, for example, our connection client is HTML5 based. Read any of our security orientated blog posts. Otherwise, check out TSplus Advanced Security and our other product pages to find out more.

More Detail About How We Make Certificates and Encryption Work for You

Let us delve deeper into how TSplus integrates SSL, remote connections and cybersecurity into its products. Discover also how we therefore brings you the benefits of this great technology. Here, I focus specifically on Remote Access, Remote Support and Advanced Security.

1. SSL/TLS in TSplus Remote Access:

  • Basic Build: TSplus Remote Access is designed to provide a secure and efficient alternative to Citrix and RDS. It enables users to remotely run applications, access desktops and offer support without exceeding budget constraints yet all the while staying secure.

  • SSL Integration: Secure remote connections are paramount in Remote Access. SSL certificates and TLS encryption secure and safely encrypt the communication between the user's device and the server. Therefore, your sensitive data remains safeguarded during remote sessions. This is particularly crucial when accessing corporate applications or sensitive information from a remote location.

2. SSL/TLS in TSplus Remote Support:

  • Basic Build: TSplus Remote Support is a cloud-based software solution for providing attended/unattended assistance to remote clients. We host it in dedicated servers managed by our own teams for greater privacy and security.

  • SSL Integration: Security is a top priority in remote support scenarios. Industry-standard TLS encryption ensures the connection between the support provider and the client is secure. Indeed, one of our main goals is preventing unauthorized access to sensitive information. This is essential for maintaining your trust and the trust of your clients. Finally, it also contributes to ensuring the confidentiality of support sessions.

3. SSL/TLS in TSplus Advanced Security:

  • Basic Build: TSplus Advanced Security is an all-in-one tool designed to prevent cyberattacks on Windows Servers open to the Internet and to stop intruders. It works as part of our software suite. Use it in addition to your remote network to keep your servers and network secure on all levels.

  • SSL Integration: In the context of SSL and TLS, TSplus Advanced Security is an extra bolster to your remote security. While these play a crucial role in securing the communication channels within and without the IT infrastructure, TSplus Advanced Security guards the doors and patrols the rooms and passageways.

    Any communication related to security updates, threat alerts or administrative tasks must be encrypted using SSL and TLS. That is how these help prevent potential interception or tampering by malicious actors. Indeed, TSplus Advanced Security adds an extra layer of protection to the server environment, against external attacks.

Cybersecurity - Where SSL and TLS Meets Remote Connections:

Encryption for Data Protection:

  • SSL and TLS respectively provide certification and encryption for data in transit. Thus, they are key in ensuring that sensitive information is protected during remote connections in both Remote Access and Remote Support. This aligns with the broader cybersecurity goals of TSplus, emphasizing the importance of secure communication channels. Companies with widely dispatched workplaces and teams appreciate the peace of mind brought by the TSplus software suite.

Preventing Unauthorized Access:

  • SSL/TLS are instrumental in preventing unauthorized access to the TSplus platform, whether it is remote access sessions, support interactions or server administration. This aligns with the core principle of Advanced Security, which aims to stop intrusions from the Web and to secure Windows Servers from cyber threats.

  • Are you from an industry needing server and data to remain secure within company walls while still letting staff work remotely? You can place your trust in the application and desktop publication of TSplus Remote Access and capacities of our other products.

Building Trust in Remote Operations:

  • The integral part played by SSL and TLS in TSplus products helps build trust with users and clients. It assures them that their data is handled securely during remote operations, enhancing the overall reliability and credibility of the TSplus solutions. For companies with stringent data compliance and privacy standards and certifications, such as the health sector, TSplus is therefore a solution of choice.

To Conclude: what is SSL, and TLS

By prioritizing SSL and TLS as an integral part of our products and their use, TSplus does more than simply align with industry best practices for secure communication. We also reinforces our commitment to providing your company with robust, trustworthy and cyber-secure solutions for remote access, support and protection. Full 360° cyber-protection is just a click away and you can test or buy it now.
