Retail organizations: Caught in eCrime's crosshairs

Retailers face unique cybersecurity challenges because breaches can result in serious revenue loss and brand damage.

The rise of e-commerce has opened multiple avenues for retailers to attract new business across the globe but it has simultaneously made them more vulnerable to attacks. Retailers must secure their endpoints and customer data regardless of location — whether on-premises or in the cloud.

Cybercriminals have taken notice, targeting retail organizations of all sizes for their highly valuable customer data.


Protecting customer data around the globe

Retailers struggle to stop advanced attacks across on-premises, virtual and hybrid cloud environments.


Breaches cost retailers a third of their customers

Brand reputation, revenue, and customer loyalty are severely impacted by a cyber breach attack.


Effective compliance and risk management

Retailers are challenged by regulatory compliance requirements designed to manage the risks posed by advanced attacks.

“CrowdStrike really stood out against other solutions. We scaled the solution quickly and in just three months, had the whole deployment installed and working, identifying incidents in the environment and creating specific rules.” - Rodrigo Godoy, CISO Guararapes Group
