As fraud and breaches grow in volume, security has become more important than ever. Recently, the PCI Security Council altered the TLS standards, and while the deadline for the new requirements is still a year away, it could cause disruption for merchants down the line if they don't update their systems soon.

The existence of the POODLE and Heartbleed exploits, among others, prove that anyone using SSL and early TLS risks being breached."
