FCL/Gazeta Esportiva

FCL usa Cloudflare para aportar velocidad y seguridad a sus propiedades en línea, como su web de deportes Gazeta Esportiva.

FCL is a 70 years old media and communications firm based in Brazil. Their media offerings include FM Radio, TV Broadcast, Sports Publishing and even a communication University. Their website Gazeta Esportiva (gazetaesportiva.com) is a historic sports newspaper that FCL converted to being an online publication. Today Gazeta Esportiva is one of the highest traffic sports websites in Brazil, receiving 6 million visits every month.

“Nuestro principal objetivo es extender nuestra presencia fuera de la red al mundo digital”, explica David Verzolla, director de tecnología de FCL. “Nuestra empresa es muy tradicional, y ya que es pionera en el sector de la comunicación de Brasil, nos proponemos ser líderes en el espacio digital”.

FCL’s Challenge: Digitizing a Tradition of Excellence in Communication

Esta transición al espacio digital que pretendía FCL necesitaba trasladar su contenido a Internet. Sin embargo, llevar la tradición de excelencia de FCL a la red implicaba ofrecer un contenido de alta calidad con la velocidad que exigen los consumidores. “Buscábamos servicios que pudieran mejorar la velocidad de nuestro sitio web, además de proporcionar un nivel más elevado de seguridad”, explica Verzolla.

FCL’s Solution: A Leading Internet Performance and Security Provider

FCL implemented Cloudflare’s CDN, DDoS mitigation and WAF services to bring speed and security to their online properties. Cloudflare’s CDN helps boost the speed of FCL’s sites by leveraging a network of data centers in over 270 cities around the world. With these distributed points of presence FCL’s content is served closer to their end users thereby reducing geographic latency and improving site performance. “We went from having speed issues to having a site over 50% faster,” Verzolla related. “As soon as our site got faster we noticed a definite increase in customer retention.”

FCL also enjoys the comfort of having Cloudflare protect their site. Cloudflare’s DDoS protection has mitigated some of the largest attacks on the Internet, and is constantly bolstered and improved through Cloudflare’s expanding global network. Plus, Cloudflare’s WAF leverages intelligence from millions of Internet properties on the network to have the most up-to-date information to block the latest cyber attacks. “The security features of Cloudflare freed up our developers from worrying about keeping the site online and allowed them to focus on other site improvements.” noted Verzolla.
