PerimeterX Code Defender is a new client-side application security solution that protects websites from Magecart, digital skimming, formjacking and PII harvesting attacks. Digital skimming is one of the fastest growing and most elusive attack types, as evidenced by the acceleration of Magecart attacks on major brands like Macy’s, Procter & Gamble’s First Aid Beauty, Delta Airlines and British Airways. The average cost of a data breach to a modern company is over $3.5 million. British Airways specifically faced a GDPR fine of over $220 million. Cybercriminals have discovered the weaknesses in client-side code, and enterprises need to adapt.
As logic moves to the front end, attackers are taking advantage of the increased attack surface on the client side. Industry estimates state that about 70% of website front-end code consists of third-party scripts or scripts from third-party libraries, creating an easy target for attackers. Code Defender tracks and monitors behavior and changes in scripts across the entire website supply chain, leveraging advanced machine learning models to detect anomalies in real time that could result in data exfiltration. This prevents data leakage or loss, protecting customers’ data from attackers trying to exploit client-side vulnerabilities which ultimately damage brand reputation.
With an average of $3.86 million lost in a modern data breach and over 20,000 domains recently hit by Magecart attacks, PerimeterX acknowledges the prevalence and increasing sophistication of these threats, proactively manages risks to security and compliance, and frees retailers to focus on sales growth and enhancing the customer experience.
