OREM, Utah, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityMetrics, a global leader in data security and compliance, today announced that their patented web skimming solution technology, Webpage Integrity Monitoring (WIM), has been named the winner of the "Overall Web Security Solution of the Year" award in the fourth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.
With the advent of EMV chip technology, payment card theft has shifted to online attacks. Online skimming attacks cost the payments industry hundreds of millions of dollars each year and are compounded by the fact that more consumers than ever are shopping from home.
"Malicious actors have learned to be very creative when injecting scripts into e-commerce checkout pages, creating their malicious code to activate only after a user has entered payment data on the checkout page," said Brad Caldwell, CEO at SecurityMetrics. "These attacks are difficult to detect and cost the payments industry millions of dollars in credit card fraud. We are proud to take on this growing threat head-on with new, revolutionary solutions and this 2020 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award is a powerful testament to our success in this area."
SecurityMetrics Webpage Integrity Monitoring simulates normal transaction activities, adding items to the cart, filling out shipping and billing info, all the while watching for any changes to the state of the webpage. If a script runs during the "mouseover" event of a field or when a field loses focus, WIM logs it. The website owner can then see if the sensitive data entered on their website has been sent to any malicious third parties.
The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year's program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.
