Hi there,

is it at all possible to run Magento securely without getting an individual SSL certificate?

If yes, how?

Greetings,

Well actually SSL certificate does not provide your store with any extra layer of security. What it does is to encrypt any informations that are being keyed in to your store by your users. If you use third party payment processor like PayPal, you will not need a SSL certificate at all as your users are redirected to PayPal’s secure page for payment.
