Protect Data and Reputation
SSL certificates are required to ensure that all customer communications are encrypted between the user and the web server. There are varyig levels of cover and the main difference between the free versions out there and the paid commercial versions is the insurance cover. If there is a data breach as a result of the break in encryption and loss of reputation to the company as well as financial loss then this is where the insurance kicks in.
For normal websites it is not required to have a paid subscription unless there is customer sensitive information stored.
Extended Validation SSL
As the highest class of SSL certificates, EV certificates secure data transmission and also display your company name in the browser address bar. This allows visitors to know that your site is safe to use and has not been compromised.
