Introducing G2’s New Client-Side Protection Solutions Category

March 19, 2024

As the digital landscape expands in scope, welcoming more e-tenants each day, cybercriminals continue evolving their tactics. Unlike cybersecurity teams that follow a structured approach to remediation, cybercriminals are messy and unpredictable, and that sometimes works in their favor.

For businesses, navigating the treacherous waters, filled with sea mines and monsters carefully placed by malicious hackers, it’s incredibly important to think one step ahead and apply the right tactics.

One misstep, the ship is damaged, prone to further attack, and customer trust plummets. To keep the ship sailing gloriously, safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer data, the cybersecurity industry has found a new way.

Introducing G2’s brand new Client-Side Protection Solutions category, which falls under the Web Security Software parent category.

The category aims to represent products that help businesses protect their customers against end-user data exfiltration and shield websites from threats related to vulnerable source code. 

By actively monitoring and managing both first-party and third-party code, these solutions empower businesses to identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by malicious actors.

Furthermore, by enhancing the integrity of the supply chain and preventing client-side attacks like XSS (cross-site scripting), formjacking, and digital skimming, these solutions serve as essential safeguards for protecting sensitive customer data.

At a time when data breaches and cyberattacks are increasingly common, the significance of client-side protection solutions cannot be overstated. 

Reinforcing web security for end-users

Client-side security solutions offer a variety of advantages to businesses, the most prominent being protecting customer data and privacy. This not only allows a business to stay compliant with regulations and data privacy laws but also enables it to enhance customer experience and satisfaction.

Protecting customers against client-side attacks helps businesses gain a competitive edge by offering customers a safer online experience than competitors who don’t prioritize cybersecurity.

It’s natural to confuse client-side protection software with website security software, which protects business websites from internet-based threats. The primary difference is that website security software aims to protect the website itself and its data from hacking and unauthorized access.

Client-side protection is not optional

Personal data protection is a vital right for every user. More than ever before, businesses must safeguard the data privacy rights of their users by setting up proactive measures like client-side protection.

To navigate through the increasingly complex challenges of the digital landscape, businesses must also adopt new breeds of cybersecurity solutions like digital risk protection (DRP) platforms to safeguard their digital assets from external threats.
