Advanced Ecommerce Security Features to Thwart Automated Hacks Now Built into eTAM!

A new article has been posted to the TAM Blog by Bruce Lode:

Advancing and evolving security levels in TAM and eTAM is an ongoing effort. In this post, I will illustrate some particularly recent examples of those continuing efforts.

Without these security measures, hackers can attempt to utilize an eTAM to load, validate, and often use fraudulent payment cards through automated means (bots).   This often will result in high volumes of bot activity on your website that will adversely affect site performance.  In some cases, this can also result in fraudulent bot order activity.

eTAM 12.6.6 now includes two additional security features to thwart automated hack attempts:

  1. reCAPTCHA – This uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.
  2. Email Verification – When a customer creates a new eTAM account, a code is sent to the email address entered. That code must be entered on the site before the account is established. This ensures the email address is real and belongs to the person creating the eTAM account.
