E-commerce Specialists

Secura are excited to announce that Concrete Studios, a leading e-commerce development specialist, has selected the Virtual Private Cloud platform to support the delivery of client websites using their proprietary csCommerce framework.

About Concrete Studios

Concrete Studios deliver high quality, creative e-commerce solutions to customers who want to sell their products online and for the last 10 years they have provided their expertise and skills to a host of household name retail brands and businesses like Ted Baker, Ipanema and Jigsaw.

The csCommerce Platform

Concrete developed the csCommerce platform to offer their clients a robust, flexible and easy to use framework to make selling products online simple and straightforward.

The user-friendly content management system and interface combines with powerful standard functionality such as image hotspots, scheduling and targeted content to create a fully featured solution ‘out of the box’.

The team at Concrete are then on-hand to provide dedicated support, offer advice and create bespoke customisations, to provide a fully tailored solution that can grow and adapt to the changing needs of online retail.

Fully hosted and delivered as a service (SaaS), the csCommerce framework removes the additional burden of PCI compliance from the customer, letting them focus solely on the revenue generating aspects of e-commerce.

Virtual Private Cloud Scale and Security

The Virtual Private Cloud offers Concrete Studios an infrastructure foundation with incredible flexibility, allowing them to quickly scale the csCommerce platform up and down with the demands of their customer base.

As Concrete Studios handles the PCI compliance for customers using the csCommerce framework, the secure by design infrastructure of the VPC and the ISO 27001 compliant data centre infrastructure are a great fit for their requirements.

Secura’s focus and commitment to security best practice will help them streamline the quarterly penetration testing and reporting process, backed by expert, 24-hour support and guidance, should it be required.

Ollie Beaton, Secura CEO commented,

Secura are delighted to welcome the team at Concrete Studios to the Virtual Private Cloud and we’re excited to be supporting such an innovative application in csCommerce. We work with a lot of digital agencies because our flexible solutions and service are a great fit for the way they work and I’m confident we’ll offer similar value to Concrete as they continue to win new client projects.
