URL https redirect

Last Modified: 2015-11-11
We have a new website that we need to do a redirect if someone puts in the URL with http:  instead of https:  ....

for example - site is:

https://somepage.company.com  (this works fine)
Would like for a user to be able to put this in and have it work:
http://somepage.company.com  (redirect to https:)

One other thing is that the ssl cert is for this page:   https://sompage.company.com
A user can also put in https:/company.com and it gets them to the page but the cert is incorrect.  I think a wildcard? cert should have been installed?  Can someone describe how that should work?

Oh, this is on IIS 8 on a Server 2012 R2 machine.
