"NetSecure has hit the mark with SmartSwipe. This innovative solution greatly reduces the risk of having credit card information captured by malicious software on a user’s computer. This product is the real thing -- not some "vaporware". I recommend SmartSwipe for anyone who uses their credit card online." (Don Burlack, CISSP, CISM, CEH; President - C.S.I. Services Inc.)
Enhanced Security for Online Shopping
Even the so-called strongest internet security cannot completely protect you when you shop online. Most internet security programs will protect your information once it reaches the internet, but hackers can access your personal information while you enter it into your computer and while it sits in your computer's memory. Anti-virus software and firewalls are not enough to protect you from hackers and scammers. With SmartSwipe, your information is protected from the moment you swipe your card, and your information is never stored anywhere on your computer. If you want to be truly safe while shopping the internet, get SmartSwipe today.
