N Brown Group plc, the leading multi-channel specialist-fit fashion retailer, has signed a deal with cyber-security start-up Namogooto provide customer protection against the growing threat of Client Side Injected Malware (CSIM).

CSIM is a relatively new but increasing threat to online retailers which injects unwanted advertising and malware directly onto the consumer’s browser or device, making it very difficult to control. The malware can take the form of product recommendations and deals, advertisements or spyware scripts that are injected into websites by extensions unintentionally installed on a customer’s web browser. Once the malware is installed, attackers can use it to lure customers to competitor’s sites, attack their online banking systems and steal private information.

The phenomenon has grown rapidly in the past year, and it is estimated that currently one in three devices in the UK are infected with CSIM as online users unwittingly install the software whilst browsing the internet. IOS users are particularly at risk, with infection numbers rising from 5% to 20% on IOS devices.

Namogoo has created a new technology which can not only detect ‘invisible’ CSIM on websites operated by ecommerce providers, publishers, banks, government and financial institutions, but can block it in real time with zero integration, and can be installed directly on the host website. Unlike other forms of malware protection, users are not required to download any additional security components.

This means all N Brown’s customers are immediately protected during visits to their retail sites, and their shopping experience is enhanced by the immediate blocking of unwanted and irritating pop-up ads.

N Brown has announced that it will be installing Namogoo technology on all their sites, including leading fashion brands JD Williams, Simply Be and Jacamo. In recent trials with the retailer, Namogoo found a number of third party threats within 24 hours of installing the software.

N Brown Head of Development Jen Mossop Scott said: “As we continue to grow our online business, it is crucial that our customers know they are able to shop with confidence on our retail sites. Our recently created Innovation Hub trialled Namogoo and determined it was of great benefit to the customers shopping experience. It shows our ability to innovate to solve our customer’s problems by quickly taking an idea and measuring for success to ensure the ideal solution is delivered. “We know that the new Namogoo technology will help ensure the optimum online experience free from distractions, but also that our customer’s security is protected. “As a responsible retailer that puts our customers at the heart of everything we do, we cannot ignore the growing threat of CSIM.”

Namogoo CEO Chemi Katz said: “One of the most striking features of CSIM is that it exists solely on the consumer’s browser or device, making it difficult for brands to detect and almost impossible to control. CSIM has the potential to significantly damage a brand’s reputation, threaten the trust of their customers and hijack sales away to unscrupulous third parties. “Namogoo’s CSIM detection and prevention solution ensures that major brands such as N Brown can keep their customer’s private details secure and ensure that trust in their brand remains high.”

Ohad Greenshpan, Namogoo’s COO, said: “Typically, when we bring any new customer into one of our product trials, it is not unusual to detect hundreds of thousands of threats from malware injections within the first 24 hours of implementation. Over the course of a month, this can easily run into millions. As we work with our clients in the run-up to peak online activity, such as Black Friday and the seasonal online buying period, these numbers can escalate hugely, and in some cases more than double.”

Namogoo was founded in Israel in 2014 by cyber-security entrepreneurs Chemi Katz and Ohad Greenshpan. Namogoo, which is Hebrew for ‘vanished’, raised USD 6 million in VC funding and has recently opened offices in London, Singapore and New York.

Ends.
