Netscape developed the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol in 1994, and it has become the standard form of Internet security used today for establishing an encrypted link between website servers and a web browser. SSL encrypts the channel, applies integrity checking, and provides authentication while continuing to strengthen as it evolves and new versions are released.

Adam, the lead programmer for ClearCode Software who developed the Bryant Grove website and coordinated their SSL installation said, "We had to change hosting companies to get SSL done right. Now when you use one of the website forms to let management know when you'll be out of your apartment and will have your dog caged so they can come in and service your apartment, you can trust [that] your communication is secure and no one else will be able to read your information as it travels across the Internet."
Privacy is a primary benefit of an https connection, plus it also verifies the website you have connected to. Modern web browsers give visual cues, such as a lock icon or a green bar, to make sure users know when their connection is secured.
Bryant Grove chose to use an SSL certificate signed by GeoTrust Global CA because of their browser compatibility of over 99% and worldwide leadership in the industry. Trusted SSL providers will only issue an SSL certificate to a verified company that has gone through specific identity checks. Browser compatibility is important for website visitors to be able to connect uninterrupted.
SSL is a world-wide standard used by millions of business websites to protect online communications with their visitors and customers. For Edmond, Oklahoma apartment community websites, Bryant Grove is the leader in adopting this standard.
