Security Spotlight - How to Safeguard your customers best interests

The recent history of online commerce is littered with stories of data breaches, hacker attacks, and complex computer viruses. That has made online shoppers more wary than ever, and created significant new security challenges for online merchants.  If safeguarding your customers’ best interests is your number one concern, consider these ecommerce security options.

Third-Party PCI Compliance

In spite of all the advances that have been made in ecommerce over the last 15 years, safely transmitting credit card information over the Internet remains a challenge. Third-Party PCI Compliance solutions benefit both customers and merchants. This managed service turns credit card information into an encrypted “token.” The token can be used by the merchant to process payment, and can be stored freely anywhere because it cannot be decrypted, even if the token is accessed by hackers. Third-Party PCI Compliance condenses the PCI-DSS compliance process into just a few steps while offering customers a truly secure way to pay.

DoS Mitigation

An estimated 7,000 DDoS attacks are reported every single day. A single one of these attacks can render your online store unavailable, costing you huge amounts in lost revenue. DoS Mitigation services are designed to deflect DoS attacks before they affect you or your customers. Monitoring is conducted round-the-clock by a dedicated team of security experts. If your customers depend on you to be there at all times, DoS Mitigation is another great choice of ecommerce security options.

Threat Prevention

So far, we have discussed two very specific threats, but unfortunately, they are only a small part of the whole. In order to protect your customers and your site against every possible contingency, partner with a managed services provider that can offer you 24/7 threat monitoring and prevention. This service is designed to respond to evolving threats and to head them off before they can affect you. If you want to protect your site with a comprehensive security barrier, threat prevention is a necessity.

Tenzing is equipped to offer you all three of these services and more. Learn about the range of ecommerce security options we have to offer.
