Shop Safely Online in the January Sales With MySiteChecker.com

BIRMINGHAM, England, January 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- MySiteChecker.com  helps online bargain hunters instantly check a website is safe and secure before they buy -

  • New research by MySiteChecker.com finds that 64% of consumers are still unhappy about providing financial information online
  • 45% are not confident they could quickly and easily determine if a website is safe
  • 71% don't realise that a green address bar represents the highest level of website security

A new free web service MySiteChecker.com has been launched to help consumers check quickly and easily whether a website is safe and secure before they shop online.

MySiteChecker.com enables shoppers to confirm that a website has a secure connection (SSL certificate) that links to a trustworthy site, and that the site has not been reported for potential problems like phishing or malware, before they enter their payment details.  Each website is awarded with a star rating ranging from zero to five, to indicate how secure and trustworthy the site is. MySiteChecker.com also works with thousands of online retailers and can help consumers to save money by presenting discount voucher codes if they are available for the website that is being checked.  

Raj Sukkersudha, Managing Director of MySiteChecker.com, says, "The internet has transformed the way we do our shopping with more people going online than ever before. Unfortunately, fraudsters are forever targeting online shoppers and it can be difficult knowing when to trust a website. MySiteChecker.com has been launched to address this problem by giving shoppers the opportunity to do a free online site safety check before they disclose any financial or personal information. All a shopper needs to do is visit MySiteChecker.com and enter the name of the website they want to check. Within seconds, we'll be able to tell them whether it's a website they can trust."

New independent research by MySiteChecker.com, in conjunction with Redshift Research, highlights a number of security concerns that consumers currently have about online shopping. The research, that surveyed 1000 consumers across the UK, found that 64% are unhappy about providing financial information online, whilst 47% are unhappy about buying a product online from a website/company they have never heard of. Furthermore, 45% are not confident they would be able to quickly and easily determine if a website is safe to submit personal information on.

Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
