Leading Hosting and Services Provider for Magento Clients will use BlindHash Technology To Transparently Secure Passwords from Offline Attacks
ALSIP, Ill. January 18th, 2018 – Aspiration Hosting, which hosts more than 1,100 Magento eCommerce sites in over 66 countries has partnered with password database protection company BlindHash to make shoppers’ passwords virtually impossible to steal via offline attacks.
According to the 2017 IBM Cost of Data Breach Study, the average cost for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and conﬁdential information is $141. Meanwhile, Retail Touchpoints found that 75% of retail shoppers are concerned about data breaches. Even more alarming, 57% of those surveyed believe online retailers to be the most vulnerable point of attack.
"Since the majority of our clients are running transactional Magento-powered eCommerce websites, security is our top priority,” said Brad Kort, President for Aspiration Hosting. “We're excited to partner with BlindHash to provide our clients with the most advanced protection available for their password databases."
The patented BlindHash technology protects companies from the cost, embarrassment and liability of a password breach. It completely secures passwords, even if the database is accessed, and eliminates the need for password resets after a breach. BlindHash is completely invisible to the client, easy to integrate and is a very cost effective solution. In addition, it makes offline attacks physically infeasible.
“Ecommerce sites are lucrative targets for cyber attackers since stolen user credentials can be easily monetized on the black market. Just this month, Jordan Bloom was arrested for selling billions of credentials on his website LeakedSource,” said Ray McDonald, CEO of BlindHash. “Our technology not only protects consumers, but would also eliminate the need for Magento merchants to reset customer passwords in the event of a breach. For a fraction of the cost of legacy based security measures, the BlindHash extension can help online retailers avoid the massive expense and brand damage associated with a data breach.”
