Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 4, 2006
Consumer concerns over online shopping security are greatly impacting the bottom line for online retailers. According to an October Gartner finding, E-commerce sales will be about $2 billion lower in 2006 because of consumer security concerns.
To address consumer concerns, E-merchants are joining security programs, such as Xentinel Digital Security's HACKER FREE™ Certification, a "standard" for e-merchants, especially since an August Gartner survey of 5,000 online US adults revealed that nearly half of online U.S. adults, or 46% of more than 155 million people, say that concerns about theft of information, data breaches or Internet-based attacks have affected their purchasing payment, online transaction or e-mail behavior.
Xentinel specializes in remote vulnerability testing solutions and its HACKER FREE™ Certification program daily scans web sites for nearly 12,000 vulnerabilities. Members successfully passing the daily scan display the HACKER FREE™ seal on their web site. The seal is a proven tool in the effort to assure consumers the web site is secure. Xentinel studies indicate that the HACKER FREE™ seal increases a site's visitor-to-buyer conversion rate an average of 14%.
"We invite all E-merchants and E-businesses to sign up for our HACKER FREE™ Certification 60 day free trial. It is a 'must have' as it addresses consumer demands for a secure online shopping environment. The increased trust and confidence provided to consumers gives E-merchants a major competitive advantage," said Esteban Reyes CEO of Xentinel Digital Security, Inc.
