In addition to actual card theft, credit and debit card details are increasingly being stolen and abused with electronic methods. The «3-D Secure» standard enhances security for online credit card payments. In its data centers, Netcetera operates a client-capable 3-D Secure service.

For online credit card transactions, the 3-D Secure standard ensure an increased level of security. 3-D Secure (3DS) is common due to the «Verified by Visa», «MasterCard SecureCode», «American Express SafeKey», «Diners Club ProtectBuy» or «JCB J/Secure» online shop quality seals.
