Ritzpix.com Makes Security of Customer Data a Primary Focus with Implementation of End-to-End SSL Security

Ridgefield Park, NJ, Aug. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ritzpix.com, the premier online destination for cameras and imaging, has sharpened its focus on data security with the implementation of end‑to-end Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security on its RitzPix.com photofinishing site. SSL is a primary tool in protecting sensitive operations with web servers and is commonly utilized only in the 'shopping cart' portion of an e-commerce experience. In deploying end-to-end SSL protection, RitzPix.com has taken considerable extra measures to ensure the integrity and privacy of its customers' personal data from the moment they arrive at any RitzPix.com page until the moment they leave; whether they complete a transaction or not.

"Since 1918 when the first store opened, the Ritz name has been synonymous with unparalleled customer service and support," noted Michael Roth, Managing Director of Ritz Camera & Image and RitzPix.com. "In 2015 and beyond, upholding that proud tradition means doing everything in our power to protect and secure the personal data and cherished memories with which our customers entrust us via RitzPix.com. We are proud to say that we're one of the few online photofinishing services to offer end-to-end SSL security and we are committed to remaining ahead of the curve wherever data integrity and business continuity are concerned."

RitzPix.com is currently one of the only photofinishing websites that adheres to new SSL Everywhere standards and has earned an "A" rating from both Qualys SSL Labs. In an era of frequent data breaches, SSL Everywhere compliance dramatically reduces the potential for consumers' data, including name, address, phone number, email address, geo coded images and credit card information to be compromised or stolen. Visitors to the RitzPix.com site will note the "Green Lock" icon displayed on every page, indicating that full SSL protection is in place.

With a legacy of nearly 100 years, Ritz Camera & Image remains a leader in the rapidly evolving world of image technology. Ritz operates eleven Camera & Imaging retail stores across the nation, operating under the Ritz, Calumet, Wolf, Camera World and Inkley's banners. Each location offers a broad inventory of photographic equipment and extremely knowledgeable staff. All photographers, from those using their cell phones to the most advanced professional will find Ritz Camera stores to be a comprehensive retail destination.
