Patchman, best known for patching application vulnerabilities and helping hosts stop abuse before it begins, is expanding its product offering for the first time since being acquired by SiteLock in July 2017. Patchman, which is based in the Netherlands, was founded in 2015 with the goal of securing CMS applications from the hosting provider level to protect customers who did not update their applications in a timely manner. Up until now, Patchman has focused on the “Big Three” of open source content management systems – WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal – covering core application vulnerability patches. Now, for the first time, Patchman is expanding their offerings into both ecommerce and plugins – offering patches for Magento core vulnerabilities and WooCommerce vulnerabilities.

Did you know that 27 percent of consumers don’t shop online due to fears their personal information might be stolen? Or that 65 percent of consumers who have had information compromised due to online shopping will no longer shop online or return to the site their information was compromised? These alarming statistics are based on a survey conducted by SiteLock in Q4 2017, in which 1,017 consumers were asked to assess their views on online shopping. These survey results illustrate that consumers are reluctant to shop online out of concern their personal information is not being protected from eCommerce stores.
As an eCommerce owner, are you doing enough to address and overcome your customers’ fears? If not, don’t worry – we’ll explain how you can protect your customers by using PCI compliance. We’ll also make sure you understand the ins and outs of PCI compliance, the steps to get started, and the penalties for not meeting PCI standards.
Ecommerce sites can look forward to overstuffed stockings this holiday season. Holiday sales are expected to increase by at least 4 percent this year, for an anticipated total of $1.04 trillion – and for the first time, online spending is expected to exceed in-store sales. In fact, consumers plan to spend 51 percent of their holiday shopping budget online, compared to 42 percent in stores.
Despite these trends, a recent study by SiteLock shows that nearly one in three online shoppers do not plan to shop online at all during the holidays.

Retail therapy is the act of shopping with the primary purpose to improve the buyer’s mood. This form of “therapy” is practiced among many consumers, with more than half of Americans admitting to making a purchase as a way to lift their spirits. As therapeutic as shopping can be, it also raises fear among many consumers – especially around the holiday season. With websites, including eCommerce sites, experiencing 22 cyberattacks per day on average, shoppers have good reason to be concerned.
With the holidays quickly approaching and online shopping expected to hit record highs, it’s the perfect time to make sure your customers, and your bottom line, aren’t at risk. In fact, shipping experts like FedEx, are predicting another record-breaking year of shipments driven by eCommerce purchases.
With the push for holiday shopping about to begin, we conducted a survey to take a closer look at trends in online shopping and how that relates to what we’re passionate about: website security.
Festive decorations adorn storefronts and holiday music fills every shop; a reminder that the holiday season is upon us. It is a busy time of the year, full of parties, reunions with family and friends and plenty of shopping.
According to the National Retail Federation, 2016’s holiday sales are expected to increase 3.6 percent over last year to 655.8 billion dollars. Shoppers are estimated to spend an average of $935.58 on gifts, food, décor, cards, and personal purchases.
That means a lot of time spent in stores and online looking for just the right gift, decoration, or meal for the season. It is also a prime time for a crime, especially if you’re shopping online.
