Orchestra Adds SSL Support

We are delighted to announce the immediate availability of SSL support for elastic applications deployed on Orchestra PHP Cloud. This has been one of our most requested features, and is one less thing you have to worry about when deploying your app.

Encryption is something that should be used whenever an app is handling sensitive data. Whether that's your data, or even your users' data. Even something as simple as a login session needs to be protected with encryption, to protect against session hijacking.

With Orchestra's SSL support, you can attach a certificate to an elastic app in a matter of minutes. And in addition to enjoying industry standard encryption, your app will auto-heal and auto-scale as usual. Deploying secure PHP apps to the cloud has never been easier.

To add an SSL certificate, simply head to the Addons section, and enable the SSL addon. Navigate to Manage Addon, and select the relevant application. From here, you can enter the certificate details. Save your certificate, and your application is ready to go.
