it means the name on the certificate doesn't match the name of the host
the certificate has to be for/include the same machine name or use a wildcard for your domain

If you have already certificate then you should talk with certificate provider something is wrong with your certificate domain name.
-> What kind of Certificate are we Using on SBS 2011 ?? Is it a Self Signed Certificate or Trusted One.

-> Try Running the "Fix My Network Wizard" from Windows SBS Console

-> If that does not help re-run the Internet Address management wizard

-> The Internet Address Management wizard will create a new certificate (Self Signed Though!)

-> If its a Third party certificate then add the correct URL for Inetnet Address Management wizard as mentioned in the Certificate and Once the Internet Address Management wizard is completed then run "Add  a Trusted Certificate" from Windows SBS Console..... This should take care of the Issue.  

If the above mentioned steps does not helps please revert back.

I ended up running the Fix My Network Wiz and it found some issues with certificates.  It fixed a few things but left others untouched.  The good thing is that the problem was resolved.
