NetSecure SmartSwipe – Secure Online Credit Card Shopping

It´s easy to see the reasons why there has been an explosion in shopping online in recent years – convenience, choice, price and product reviews to name a few.

A recent survey of over 1000 consumers showed that 14% of people buy online more than once a week, compared to only 4% in 2007. Furthermore, 60% of shoppers expect to spend more online in the coming 2-3 years.

But it´s not all a bed of roses, the increase of online payments has attracted a lot of unwelcome attention from the cyber-criminal community – keen to relieve you of your payment details or take advantage of your favourite payment processor…

The Netsecure SmartSwipe is a USB device that plugs into your PC, and when you checkout your online purchases reads, encrypts and sends your credit card details directly to the payment page. A simple swipe of your card through the reader, a quick click of the confirm button and you´re done – no more tedious typing in of all your details and wasting time trying to remember your dogs favourite school or mothers maiden name, now did I save Attila or Adolf?

But the protection doesn´t end there – the Smartswipe protects your information before it even enters your computer, reducing the risk from hackers, malicious software and providing proactive protection from phishing sites (a website that tries to get usernames, passwords, or credit card details by pretending to be trustworthy). No personal or credit card information is stored on your PC, so if it´s lost or stolen they´ll be no early Christmas at your expense.

The Netsecure SmartSwipe works with virtually any website that accepts Mastercard, American Express, Visa and Visa Debit card payments. You´ll need a Windows PC (no Mac version as yet) running XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit versions). Your browser also needs to be Internet Explorer 6 upwards or Firefox 3.6 upwards.
