New shopping cart monitor detects digital e-commerce skimming attacks


OREM, Utah, Oct 26, 2021 / PRNewswire / – SecurityMetrics has developed a new technology for e-commerce that intercepts digital skimming in shopping carts. As part of the SecurityMetrics Threat Intelligence Center, Shopping cart monitor protects vendors by preventing web skimming and credit card information theft from their e-commerce sites.

This new technology has the potential to save online retailers huge amounts of money and frustration as businesses can be held liable for damage – damage that can cost retailers hundreds of millions of dollars each year.

Aaron Willis (SecurityMetrics Forensic Analyst, CISSP) states, “Attackers are as innovative criminals as they come. Shopping Cart Monitor is important because it helps us stay ahead of these attackers. It helps us keep your website from producing the least hanging fruit will.” By running Monitor you can always stay one step ahead of attackers … by running Monitor you are better protected. “

By analyzing data on the most recent security breaches, SecurityMetrics found that digital skimming attacks are not only increasing dramatically, but also becoming more sophisticated. E-commerce skimming attacks are particularly malicious because, unlike traditional skimming, they do not leave any signs of compromise on the web server and are therefore extremely difficult to detect. Shopping cart monitor is a preventative solution that monitors websites for suspicious activity and alerts you to problems.

Shopping cart monitor offers:

  • Unobtrusive scanning
  • Customizable notifications
  • Regular notifications and support
  • Uncomplicated and simple reporting
  • Automated inspection
  • Segmented lists of threat indicators
  • User friendly software
  • Technical support around the clock

Webpage Integrity Monitoring (WIM) is the patented technology behind Shopping Cart Monitor that detects web skimming the moment it is triggered and warns a merchant if a website has been compromised.

SecurityMetrics offers a second WIM service, Check shopping cart, which provides a one-time forensic inspection of shopping carts to determine the source of a violation so that it can be corrected. When website health monitoring detects an attack, it is important to gather detailed forensic evidence to understand how an ecommerce website was breached. A SecurityMetrics Forensic scientists checks your online shopping cart and finds evidence of a skimming attack so that you can take appropriate measures to protect your data.
