ARX For E-commerce
68% of the shoppers are concerned about the fact that a major retailer they buy from may be hacked, according to a study by KPMG Consumer Loss Barometer of 2019.
The most negative impact that a security breach can have on an e-commerce business is not the financial loss, but the loss of trust of the customers.
Hence, a robust security network is not an option anymore, but a necessity.
The very definition of e-commerce is doing business online. Unlike other sectors, e-commerce has a large customer base from around the world. This paves the way for a large amount of transactions and data exchange, making it vulnerable to online threats.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and DOS (Denial of Service) attacks aim to disrupt the website by flooding the servers with numerous requests until they succumb to it and the website crashes.
Hackers make unauthorised transactions and wipe out the trail costing businesses significant amounts of losses. Some fraudsters also file requests for fake refunds or returns.
The bots pop-up on the company’s website and under the hood of helping them rank on Search Engine Result Pages, the bots scrape websites for their pricing and inventory information which in turn leads to a huge loss in business, both monetary and in terms of customers.
The ARX Advantage
A password is the key to businesses’ operation and is the single authentication factor for the customers. Depending on the business, there might be different login methods for product information, order placement and tracking.
A password is the key to businesses’ operation and is the single authentication factor for the customers. Depending on the business, there might be different login methods for product information, order placement and tracking. So, a customer ends up signing up for separate applications with separate passwords and end up keeping weaker passwords which are easier to remember. Thus, providing easy access to hackers, as well.
It is simpler and more secure if the customer creates one account with one password, and gains access to all related systems. This is what Single Sign-On does for the business. The business and the customer can use the same user id and password across all systems that they are going to use. With the Single Sign-On (SSO), instead of a password for every application, users have one password to remember. With that single sign-on, they can get access to all their applications. SSO assures that the users have a strong password. Also, it eliminates the need of a middleman to reset passwords time and again.
SSO makes IT’s life easier and the website more secure.
- We provide efficient, cost-effective and nimble identity infrastructure for IT
- Help users increase their productivity as they can seamlessly connect to multiple IT resources using the same credentials
- Mitigate risk of having lost, weak and shared passwords, by restricting access to services via various intelligent integrations like OAuth, SAML, and RSA
Enforce Strong Authentication
A Juniper Research, conducted recently, estimated that the annual online payment fraud losses from e-commerce and other services will reach $48 billion by 2023 (from $22 billion in 2018).
Enforce Strong Authentication
A Juniper Research, conducted recently, estimated that the annual online payment fraud losses from e-commerce and other services will reach $48 billion by 2023 (from $22 billion in 2018). This exponential growth in data breaches means that the verification of customer identity has become a growing challenge for e-commerce businesses. The best way is to stop cyber criminals right at the outset ─ as soon as they visit the site.
The solution for that is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Traditional usernames and passwords can be stolen, and they’ve become increasingly vulnerable to brute force attacks. MFA creates multiple layers of security, resulting in efficient and diligent authentication. This ensures that the user requesting access is actually who they claim to be.
With MFA, a cybercriminal may steal one credential, but will be thwarted by having to verify identity in a different manner. MFA is an effective way to provide enhanced security for all the IT resources including cloud, on-premise and mobile.
- We help enable ‘MFA Everywhere’ on-premise with our strong integration support
- Starting from simple question-answers to fingerprint authentication and random pin generation device, any of these can be deployed for the MFA needs. All these can be configured using easy steps
In the e-commerce environment, there are several users. It becomes difficult to manage so many users, and also maintain a safe and secure network path.
In the e-commerce environment, there are several users. It becomes difficult to manage so many users, and also maintain a safe and secure network path. What this sector needs is a powerful system that can manage applications, and ensure a secure and fast access for customers. Leveraging automated user management streamlines role-based access control and ensures a seamless user experience.
ARX helps onboarding new users quickly. Along with security suite features like authentication, access controls, privileges, entitlements, single sign-on & security policies and activity auditing across organisation, they can also create error-free workflows.
With a better User Management,
- Bulk onboarding with exact required privileges can be performed easily
- Deboarding at ease without any worries
- With maker-checker workflow, one can be absolutely sure who is going to do what
Visibility, Detection and Response
The e-commerce sector is under constant development as online retailers compete to provide the best seamless digital experience.
Visibility, Detection and Response
The e-commerce sector is under constant development as online retailers compete to provide the best seamless digital experience. In order to accomplish this, they rely on third-party vendors to provide services like checkout, payment processing, reviews, etc. This ecosystem is posing several challenges for online retailers, including the lack of visibility. Sometimes, the third-party services bring in a fourth party, who has the same level of data access, but operate without the knowledge of the retailer. This lack of visibility has been the cause for many data breaches. 59% of the companies in the USA have experienced a third-party breach in 2018, according to a recent survey conducted by Ponemon Institute.
This is where ARX can help the business.With lifecycle managed users, Access Controls and Authorisation Access can be easily managed and mapped. Along with a maker-checker workflow, the business will also have visibility on how that is done and by whom. With a clear visibility and detection mechanism in place, they can also respond to any threat, which otherwise could leave them exposed.
