Fraud Threat Alert for free

Fraud costs the UK economy £73 billion annually* and its impact on a business of anyfraud size potentially devastating. Therefore, Foregenix, is offering small to medium sized businesses its online security solution Foregenix Threat Alert (FTA) free-of-charge to raise awareness of the importance of online data security. allows businesses without IT security capabilities in-house to monitor web traffic and payment systems, alerting on unusual behaviour or potential attacks. This cloud-based software also scans websites for unprotected cardholder data to ensure sites are not holding customer data insecurely.

Developed by industry experts in PCI certification and taking minutes to set up, FTA also provides the security monitoring and alerting required by the PCI DSS for all websites accepting credit and debit card transactions, helping small businesses simplify and reduce the cost of compliance.

Users simply sign up online, allowing their site to be tagged and monitored by FTA, with a team of experienced security experts on standby to help.

Speaking about FTA, Foregenix Director, Benjamin Hosack, said: “Data security and PCI compliance should be a priority, but most small businesses are not aware of their security obligations leaving them at risk of a breach which leads to large bank fines. FTA acts as a defence, monitoring online payment systems and ensuring businesses are not unknowingly storing unsecured customer credit card data.”

“We recognised that all types and sizes of businesses needed a readily accessible website security defence system which is why we chose to launch FTA for free. Securing an online business is often seen as a dark art, but FTA proves that all SME’s can get simple, effective website security without the need for an IT security engineer.
