Protect customer data and brand reputation.

Prevent the theft of PII and meet PCI Compliance requirements.

Prioritize cybersecurity to block carders.

Retailers handle billions of transactions every year, involving reams of consumer data and representing more than a trillion dollars in revenue. Retailers are known to focus more on increasing sales and less on security, opening vectors for potential breaches, exposing consumers to identity theft, and jeopardizing brand perception.

Hackers lurk in retailer networks, poised to pilfer consumer credit card and other PII data and resell it on the dark web. Malicious actors known as carders openly share compromised credentials, fraud methodologies, and hijacking and impersonation techniques, including how to monetize stolen credit cards to buy and resell gift cards. Once fraudsters tag a retailer as an easy target, security, and brand reputation suffer.
