Christmas Designers’ storefront was hosted on the Google Cloud Platform. Support tickets were taking too long to resolve and this was impacting their business. They needed a cloud delivery provider offering rapid 24×7 DevSecOps support to ensure efficient ecommerce operations and a seamless customer experience.
With cyber-attacks increasingly targeting ecommerce storefronts, Christmas Designers wanted to ensure a safe and secure transaction environment for their customers. PCI compliance and bot management were high on their agenda. They started looking for an ecommerce security solution that could offer not just a cloud WAF, but end-to-end protection against sophisticated attacks.
Need for enterprise-grade
security and support
Google Cloud Platform
“We have found Webscale to be a solid partner across several hosting migrations. They routinely work with our team to support our mutual clients, and coordinate with us so we can make sure the clients make the best choices. I’m glad to have a partner like them to lean on, not only for their expertise, but also their willingness to jump into any situation.”
Christmas Designers digital agency Forix assessed their needs and recommended Webscale based on past work experiences with other clients. In their opinion, Webscale was the best fit for offering 24x7x365 DevSecOps support as well as end-to-end security and scalability especially during the critical holiday sales season.
Christmas Designers has deployed Webscale Standard with hosting on AWS and Webscale Cloud Security Suite as an add-on. The primary reasons for the purchase included automatic scaling and complete protection from bots and other nuisance traffic that wastes bandwidth, and consumes valuable server resources that are better spent on paying customers.
