SaaS 공급자가 SSL 최종 고객의 요구를 해결할 때 처하는 상황에는 세 가지 시나리오가 있습니다.

ssl for saas scenario 1

암호화되지 않은 브랜드 베니티 도메인

SSL을 사용하지 않는 사용자 지정 베니티 도메인은 SSL의 성능 이점을 누릴 수 없고 데이터 전송을 보호하지 못하므로 스누핑에 취약하고, 방문자에게 도달하기 전에 콘텐츠가 수정되거나 삽입될 수 있습니다.

ssl for saas scenario 2

암호화되었지만 브랜드가 없는 도메인

SaaS 공급자를 통해 SSL을 사용할 수 있는 도메인에는 사용자 지정 베니티 도메인이 없으므로 브랜드 평판 저하 및 SEO 순위 하락이 발생합니다.

사내 접근 방식의 과제

암호화된 브랜드 베니티 도메인을 원하는 SaaS 공급자는 SSL 수명주기를 수동으로 관리하거나 복잡한 자동 사내 솔루션을 구축할 수도 있습니다. 단, 수동으로 관리하면 배포 시간이 길어지고 오버헤드 비용이 발생합니다.

Automated SSL lifecycle management

Automated SSL lifecycle management

You don’t have to worry about any part of the SSL lifecycle. Cloudflare manages the entire process, from private key creation and protection through domain validation, issuance, renewal, and reissuance.

Rapid global SSL deployments

Rapid global SSL deployments

During the SSL issuance process, Cloudflare deploys new certificates across its global network of data centers in 200 cities, bringing HTTPS online within minutes.

With SSL for SaaS we have implemented a simpler flow because Cloudflare’s API handles the provisioning, serving, automated renewal and maintenance of our customers’ SSL certificates. Plus, end-to-end HTTPS now means we have bolstered privacy and performance for our customers, and can leverage browser features, like Local Storage, that we couldn’t use before.
