Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is ecommerce security?

    Ecommerce security is the essential practice of securing an online web store from malware and hackers and protecting online transactions. It consists of a series of protocols that protect website visitors, customers, and their personal data from theft and cyberattacks. Basics of ecommerce security include: PCI compliance to meet regulatory requirements for online stores • Monitoring for quick response to malware and indicators of compromise • Protection of customer data and privacy • SSL protection to protect sensitive data in transit
    Block attacks and malicious scripts with web application firewall

  • What is a credit card skimmer?

    A credit card skimmer is a type of malicious software that hackers can inject into your ecommerce webstore to steal payment card information from your customers. When a customer enters their payment card information into your website, the skimmer captures and sends the sensitive information to the hacker. Stolen data can include card numbers, expiration dates, security codes and any other customer details displayed on the web form. It's important to implement security measures to protect your webstore from credit card skimmers, such as regularly monitoring your website for suspicious activity and using secure payment processing services.

  • How does a firewall help me be PCI compliant?

    The Sucuri firewall is a security system that monitors and intercepts network traffic based on a number of security rules. It can help to block unauthorized access attempts to your webstore, prevent malicious traffic, and protect sensitive data. A firewall can also help to detect and block common web-based attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS).

    The Sucuri Firewall helps you achieve many of the requirements outlined by the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard) by providing a cloud-based Firewall, Web Application Firewall, and Intrusion Detection System for your ecommerce website.

    Non-PCI compliant websites can suffer hefty penalties by payment industry regulators if customers experience fraudulent transactions. The average cost of a data breach for a small business is $86,500, with enterprise organizations paying an average of 4 million dollars.

  • How can I install Sucuri on an ecommerce store?

    Installation is quick and easy. Sign up for a Platform Plan, then add your domain and make a quick DNS change to install protection. SSL certificates will be automatically generated to help protect data in transit. If you have malware in your environment and need a hand with cleanup, simply create a ticket and our analysts will get to work cleaning up your ecommerce website.
