Retail, e-commerce and multi-branch businesses

Protect your customers and your brand from advanced cyber threats.

Stay open for business—but closed to cybercrime.

The retail industry is experiencing a massive shift in how business is done. Consumers demand faster transactions, flexible buying options, and direct engagement with your brands. This digital transformation creates new security risks. Your retail security strategy must consider every threat that cyber criminals use to steal data and damage your business.
Barracuda provides comprehensive protection against every major threat.

Email Attacks

Most successful attacks against retail businesses come from a malicious email.

Website Attacks

Your website and e-commerce systems are a prime target for DDoS attacks, data theft, and fraud.

Brand Hijacking

Cyber-criminals can spoof your brand to trick customers into thinking they are receiving emails from your company.

Mobile Apps

Mobile apps open connections to your servers that can give hackers API access to your data.

Your Employees

Malicious content such as visited websites and file attachments can install malware and steal login credentials.

IoT Devices

Internet-connected devices at retail locations like POS systems are all potential points for network intrusion.

Retail businesses are prime targets.

Retail fraud as a percentage cost of revenues*

A network intrusion on Earl Enterprises led to malware being installed on point-of-sale systems at dozens of their restaurants across the United States resulting in over 2 million credit cards stolen.

Roughly 37 million Panera customer accounts, including loyalty card numbers, were exposed by inadequate web and API security.

An email attack on an HVAC contractor exposed the details of 60 million customers and 41 million payment card accounts.
