SSL Certification

Knowledgable customers know that while many companies like to talk about their site security, there are often holes in their systems.  It seems like we're constantly hearing about large companies losing credit card data to hackers.  Well we've made sure that this is can never happen with our site, because WE DO NOT CAPTURE OR STORE your credit card data. 

When you enter the checkout process on our site, you may notice that your browser's address bar turns to green.  This assures you that your transaction is being protected with the highest encryption standard available.  For state of the art encryption, we use the GoDaddy Premium Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Server Certificate with Extended Validation (EV).  Having the EV certification triggers web browsers to change their address bar to green and to display our company's name.  Our GoDaddy SSL is based on virtually unbreakable high security 256-bit encryption with a 2048 byte key.  GoDaddy does not rely on a third party for their Public Key Infrastructure.  In fact, their Certificate Authority owns its Trusted Root.  This provides cutting edge protection for our transaction processing.  This may all sound very high tech, however the important thing to know in all of this is that your transactions with us are fully protected.

So what makes an EV SSL certificate different than other SSL certificates? Extended Validation is the highest level of SSL Certification available.  To obtain the EV Certification, we went through an extensive verification process of both the integrity of our site and the validity of our business.  Most SSL certificates are basic certificates and don't involve any background checks.  If you can pay $25, you can get a basic certificate.  These basic certificates do nothing except provide an encryption key for transaction processing.  While that's helpful, it doesn't provide any assurance about who you're actually doing business with.  When you see the green bar in your browser, you know that the company you're dealing with is a real business and that we've been thoroughly vetted.  By choosing the most rigorous certification process, we've spared no expense to provide you with the confidence to shop here safely.

PCI Compliance

Your credit card information is safe with us because we don't store it. Once the transaction is processed, your credit card information is not kept.  The Home Security Store security practices are fully PCI Compliant.  PCI Compliance means we meet the high security standards set forth by the Payment Card Industry.  The PCI Standard is supported by all payment card brands including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express, so you can feel certain that our level of security is directly approved by your credit card company. 

In meeting PCI Standards, our online data systems are password secured.  Our servers are completely firewalled and have full anti-virus protection.  We also run full system scans of our servers daily, and we use the very best in state-of-the-art encryption technology to protect your online transactions.  And since we never store your credit card information on our servers, there's no way that hackers will ever get access to stored credit card data off our site.  There's just nothing there for them to get. 

In addition to implementing best practices in the management of our hardware and software, we also use HackerTarget scanning technologies to make sure that our site is always safe from hacker attacks.  HackerTarget is the leading Internet portal for open source based security vulnerability assessments.  Their scans include the NMap Port Scan, the Nikto Web Scan, the OpenVAS Scan, the Online Domain Scan, and both SQLiX and Sqlmap SQL injection testing.  By using these various scans, we ensure that our site is always safe for to do business with us.
