Website SecurityAdvanced Protection, Powered by Sucuri
A world-class, website security layer that offers continuous monitoring and automatic, daily malware scanning at the front end and server level to detect and remove security holes and issues known to compromise websites. Ensuring a clean site means HLRSC.com will run safer, faster, and never be blacklisted by search engines, like Google.
Web Application Firewall (WAF)Automatically Stops Malware
A cloud-based, “real-time” firewall service that adds an additional layer of protection to the HLRSC site by screening all incoming data, blocking malicious or suspicious traffic, and removing dangerous code before it has a chance to infect the website. In addition, WAF speeds load times, increases availability, and protects site reputation on the web.
Secure Socket Layer (SSL)Encrypts and Protects Sensitive Information Between Server & Client
An SSL Certificate validates site identity and uses a 256-bit encryption to stop hackers and thieves from obtaining personal and valuable information like usernames, passwords, and credit card numbers. When a visitor visits HLRSC.com, our SSL automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Once the secure connection is established, a padlock icon and the prefix “https” (not http) will appear in the browser’s bar to indicate the site is safe. In order to obtain an SSL Certificate, each company must go through a validation process. Once received, the SSL Certificate information is shared with merchant account services before online payment transactions can occur.
Before the trasmission of any data occurs, its encrypted and then sent to the receiver where it is, in turn, decrypted before processing it. This process is called “public key encryption.” In order for “public key encryption” to establish a secure connection, one or both parties must submit a digital certificate to negotiate the connection. This process is called “handshaking.” Lastly, to ensure the handshake is valid, the SSL connects a trusted third party known as a “Certificate Authority” in order to confirm the site identity which is needed to send and receive information.
When visiting HLRSC.com, please check out the SSL Security Seal located at the bottom left corner of any page. This seal serves as an added security measure for our members so they can always click and verify the history and current security status of our site.

An Application Programming Interface (API) provides an additional layer of security to protect the communication between two programs by sharing ONLY small packets of data needed—like placing an order on HLRSC.com through PayPal.

HLRSC’s online storefront will not resolve or complete an online transaction without valid API Certificate to help protect the information you’re sending.
