Netacea invites you to their event

The biggest automated threats to your Magento website

About this event

Covid-19 has created a surge of eCommerce activity over the last 12 months, resulting in digital retail sales exceeding $2 billion on more than 130 days in 2020, compared to just two days in the previous year. The global eCommerce market is predicted to reach $5.4 trillion by 2022, but with increased transactions comes more opportunity for bot activity.

Magento is used by more than 250,000 merchants around the world. Using the platform’s fleet of cloud-based omnichannel solutions, eCommerce businesses can unite the digital and physical shopping experience for their users. However, protecting your business from bot activity is crucial to optimizing this user experience, and Magento merchants face a range of security risks from threat actors every day.

In this webinar, Netecea’s Head of Threat Research and Head of eCommerce are joined by Magento specialist agency Gene Commerce to explore the astonishing scale of eCommerce growth over the pandemic, and how this equates to challenges faced by Magento websites from bots and automated threats.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Cybersecurity challenges faced by the eCommerce industry
  • Threats posed on Magento sites by credential stuffing, card skimming and unprotected APIs
  • How Magento sites can overcome these challenges with sophisticated bot management
