Bonnier Motorcycle Group Leads The Way With Online Security By Introducing New Web Protocol

Bonnier Audiences Receive Extra Layer of Security
When Visiting Motorcycle Group Websites

IRVINE, CA – October 24, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Bonnier Motorcycle Group (BMG) today announced a company-wide introduction of new online security for consumers browsing all of the brand’s websites. Each BMG digital property is now a fully-secured HTTPS protocol site. This offers an extra level of protection to those browsing publications, like CycleWorld.com and MotorcyclistOnline.com, as well as BMG live-event partnership sites, such as EnduroCross.com.

“As the worldwide leader in the enthusiast motorcycle publishing space, we want to provide our customers with peace-of-mind when visiting our websites,” said Andy Leisner, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Bonnier Motorcycle Group. “This initiative is another great example of our industry-leading strategy, be it by creating the most informative and engaging content or by providing a safe platform to view it.”

The use of HTTPS for URL addresses allows for defense from hackers and third-parties interested in stealing data by eliminating vunerability between information sent between websites and visitors. HTTPS, an acronym for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, is particularly important for those visiting websites over public WiFi networks, making sure that sites are authenticated and information is not breached. As an increasingly large percentage of users consume news on mobile devices using public networks, the added layer of security of HTTPS for Bonnier Motorcycle Group means that readers can enjoy the newest motorcycle review or instructional video, knowing their personal information and data are private and secure.
