In the hyper-competitive world of ecommerce, AO.com leverages Cloudflare's security and performance to set itself apart.
VO: Hi, we’re Cloudflare. We’re building one of the world’s largest Global Cloud Networks to help make the Internet faster, more secure, and more reliable.
Meet our customer, AO.com — an online retailer specializing in electrical goods -- from washers, dryers, and refrigerators to televisions and home entertainment systems. They transact over one billion pounds per year.
Austin: My name is Austin Davies, I’m a DevOps Engineer at AO.com. We work on solutions to make development teams go faster.
One of the challenges faced by AO.com was to be the best amongst their competition when it came to site performance.
Austin: Faster web performance for the business is very important in our industry, in e-commerce speed is a differentiating factor. You can literally buy any product from us, you can get that from other retailers. But what you can’t get from other retailers is speed.
Having the best security for their business is another major differentiator for AO.com.
Austin: Web security for the business is hugely important. We’re seeing more attacks, we’re seeing our competitors get breached. If we ever have downtime, even if it’s just for ten minutes — the cost to our business is huge.
AO.com saw immediate benefits by selecting Cloudflare as their performance and security provider — from quick product adoption, to ease of use, to competitive pricing.
Austin: With Cloudflare it seems like security is through and through in all the products, constantly in the forefront of what they do. With things like Workers, with things like the security — they all seem to be miles ahead of the competition.
With customers like AO.com -- and over 10 million other domains that trust Cloudflare with their security and performance -- we’re making the Internet fast, secure, and reliable for everyone.
