The Let’s Encrypt project, which just came out of beta, is one of the first real free ways to get a valid security certificate for your site without paying any money.
Now, just a few weeks after it became generally available, Synology is about to become the first hardware manufacturer to integrate it into its platform.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
As part of the company’s DSM 6.0 beta, it’s added the ability to secure your NAS device with a Let’s Encrypt free security certificate rather than Synology’s own self-signed one.
It’s a great step forward for both security and for the legitimacy of the Let’s Encrypt project. Integration with a major hardware partner shows just how important making free SSL certificates widely available is, and how easy it can be for anyone to set one up.
