PF Changs sprints to the forefront of digital with Cloudflare powering their infrastructure.
PF Changs offers a casual dining atmosphere to experience authentic Chinese food & Asian cuisine. Their website offers users the ability to explore the menu, order online, make reservations and get directions to local P.F. Chang's locations. “We know we’re a great restaurant, and now we’re making the push to be a great, high-tech restaurant,” commented Kierra Salsbery, network engineer for PF Changs.
PF Changs’s Challenge: Security & Performance for Internet Properties
“We measure the success of our web presence by uptime, performance, and enhancements over time,” explained Salsbery. “One of the enhancements we recently looked into was improving our security. Our existing Web Application Firewall was giving us a few issues, and didn’t provide us with the full protection we wanted.”
PF Changs’s Solution: Advanced, Integrated, and Easy-to-Use Performance & Security
PF Changs evaluated a number of vendors, but decided Cloudflare’s offering was the best fit for their needs. “With complex systems, integration with new vendors can be tricky,” noted Salsbery. “At the end of the day, Cloudflare’s offering was great, and Cloudflare had better support and quick issue resolution. Plus, consolidating vendors and migrating our authoritative DNS services was an added bonus that we weren’t even looking to solve.”
“Cloudflare’s security and performance suite ensures we have greater than 99% uptime, which means more sales for our business,” Salsbery continued. “We use the web application firewall to block over 30,000 threats every month, which is an added layer of security that we need to protect our website.”
