Monitor and control third-party website technologies

Gain full visibility of your third-party technologies to control the data they collect and share, to prevent data leakage

Organizations today rely on an ever-expanding third-party ecosystem to conduct business, without realising they are leaving themselves vulnerable to data leakage

Some of the most high-profile data breaches have taken place when organizations have failed to secure their third-party applications and systems. These unsecured weak areas have enabled cybercriminals to take advantage and exploit customer data.

Many businesses have no idea as to exactly which third-party technologies are operating on their website – and more importantly – where customers’ data is being collected and sent. This lack of visibility and understanding around these blind spots is the cause of many high-profile data breaches.

The third-party threat

While third-party scripts such as chatbots, ads, trackers and social media buttons enhance your website – and provide an important marketing functionality – they can be easily manipulated by cybercriminals and hacking groups to gain access to your customers’ personal and financial data.

Infamous hacking group Magecart stole customer data from Ticketmaster UK after compromising a third-party chatbot on its website. Elsewhere, hackers altered the source code of a plug-in used across government websites to inject a crypto mining code into every webpage, affecting more than 4,000 websites worldwide.

It can be difficult to guard against these types of attacks as every website that uses third-party JavaScript is susceptible.
