SocialFix is a New York City-based company that empowers retailers in various sectors. The e-commerce solutions that are offered by this IT firm are suitable for small businesses, mid-size stores and even corporations. Cyber security is a top priority in the development and management of custom online stores for such clients in the NYC metro area. SocialFix goes to great lengths to secure shopping carts on websites that sell merchandise, software or other items. For example, a buyer might be required to enter personal data that relates to a bank account, debit card or credit card. It's important for vendors to authenticate payments through external providers, such as Authorize.net and First Data. Every transaction that's done through these parties leaves a digital trail. Retailers should take advantage of advanced data-mining tools that could detect and prevent fraud. Shopping carts also have to be backed up by the latest methods of encryption.
