One great way to make passwords more secure is to couple them with another factor of authentication. For#WordPress, Clef makes two-factor authentication simple.
Passwords are not a great authentication method — a point that’s been made many times, not least by me on this blog. Passwords are great in theory, but in practice, when users are asked to choose and manage strong passwords, they don’t. They choose easy-to-remember and hence easy-to-guess passwords.

Just wanted to let you know about Alarmbell, a new open source extension we developed, that will log and send notifications whenever a new admin user is created. Alarmbell will log the IP and account information for any attempt to make changes to admin users, including the creation of admin users, their deletion, and their modification. Here's a closer look.
Alarmbell is an open source Magento extension for monitoring and notifying users of changes to a Magento store’s admin user accounts. A Magento eCommerce site is a high-value target for online criminals. Although credit card data is usually safe even if an attacker gains access to a Magento store

Customer retention — generating new sales from existing customers — is less expensive than generating the same sales from new customers. In this post, we offer up some tips to help you improve your customer retention. #eCommerce  
Getting customers to make their first purchase in your store is an uphill struggle, and it's where a significant proportion of an eCommerce store's marketing budget is spent. Without customer acquisition, there would be no eCommerce, but keeping existing customers is just as important.

Do you regularly update your #WordPress site? Do verify the trustworthiness of plugins and themes? You should. Keeping your WordPress site in peak condition is often times just a matter of keeping up with the little things.

Should nonprofits invest money in marketing strategies beyond the tried and true donation solicitation techniques? In a new post for +TechSoup, we look at why the answer is yes.
 
Content marketing can provide nonprofits with an owned resource that can help generate donations and volunteers over the long-term, as compared to the short-term benefit of events and other more traditional donation solicitation efforts. http://ow.ly/10sJ8T
