Secure Server

Definition - What does Secure Server mean?

A secure server is a Web server that guarantees secure online transactions. Secure servers use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol for data encryption and decryption to protect data from unauthorized interception.

Secure servers are used by online retailers and any organization with a Web presence.

Techopedia explains Secure Server

Servers provide a variety of internal and external user services in organizations, which are constantly vulnerable to security threats, due to data sensitivity.

Secure servers help organizations and businesses conduct secure and private network transactions. Until recently, e-commerce opportunities were often lost because of online user security concerns. However, the growth of online retailing has expanded requirements for security and measures geared toward preventing malicious attacks (like phishing and hacking).
