How to protect your website from attackers?

press release featured image

Every business, whether large or small, needs to have a customer-facing website these days, and in the 12 months to May 2014, Australians spent $15.3 billion on online retail sales, reports Australian security services company Seccom Global.

While this level of online activity is great for commerce in Australia, it also brings with it a host of problems – potentially very damaging ones. Marketing companies and web developers know that a website needs security, but many do not understand the depth of online threats that exist, and the ever-evolving complexity of attacks.

Seccom Global to help online retailers avoid brand equity shock

press release featured image

Seccom Global, Australia’s leading managed security service provider (MSSP), announced today that its participation in Online Retailer Conference and eCommerce Expo can potentially help online retailers to avoid damage to their brand equity.

Seccom Global Director, Michael Shine, said: “Adweek ran a headline recently that cautioned: ‘Retailers are finding that data vulnerability can undo years of brand equity’. Our services can protect online retailers in particular against digital calamities.”

SeccomGlobal will be exhibiting and speaking on the risks to e-Commerce sites, and explaining how to manage these risks. The company’s SecureSTREAM solution is designed to protect e-commerce sites from attacks such as SQL injection, DDoS and more.

SecureSTREAM technology passes traffic to and from a customer’s website to the Seccom Global cloud through unified threat management (UTM) and next generation firewalls, and then on to a web application firewall. All activity is logged by SIEM security and information event management software for in-depth analysis of any suspicious activity.

Protection can be reinforced by the cloud-based DDoS mitigation solution, Arbor Cloud, which guards against flooding attacks.

About SecureSTREAM

The continued evolution of ecommerce has enabled individuals and groups to launch orchestrated attacks on organisations and their associated infrastructures for criminal or political gain. Attackers use a wealth of methods to infect hosts and control compromised systems utilising organised botnets to automate attacks like phishing, spamming, and DDoS attacks.

SecureSTREAM is designed specifically to protect e-Commerce sites from such attacks that may normally bypass or disable traditional firewall protections. These include DDoS, Zero Day attack, SQL injection and cross-site-scripting attacks

Is your data safe from disaster?

press release featured image

Michael Shine, director of Seccom Global, a managed security services provider based in Sydney, Australia, knows firsthand the importance of an effective disaster recovery plan. In October 2013, flooding and a roof collapse left his offices unusable for an entire month. Given his industry, the repercussions could have been severe.

“It would have [affected] our customers and how they are able to operate, which was not the case when our [disaster recovery] solution kicked in,” he says. “I am sure we would have lost most or all of our customers due to the damage that would have been caused to their businesses.”
Despite the damages, which totaled more than $220,000, it was business as usual at Seccom Global.

“In fact, many of our clients were completely unaware that such a major disaster occurred.”
