Security in eCommerce: Outdated Security Doesn’t Cut It Anymore

By Hayley Bell on 15 Oct 2019


What kinds of precautions do you take to protect your office or home? When thinking of the security of your business, the same kind of care (if not, more) should be taken for the online portion of your work. This is why OrderMyGear takes such care and time in not only creating an eCommerce platform that simplifies the day-to-day work of decorators, dealers, and distributors, but also ensures that every aspect of your eCommerce platform is secure, reliable, and scalable.

How OrderMyGear Views Security

OrderMyGear recognizes the importance of keeping sites safe and secure among growing cyber threat in an increasingly technology-based world. This is why our engineers have built this eCommerce platform around the following three criteria:

  • Secure: defending digital information against internal and external threats
  • Reliable: consistently performing according to specifications which keep stores up, and the platform available
  • Scalable: keeps up with increased demand and continued growth on the platform

Let Us Take This On

While you are at work with all facets of running your business, the last thing you should need to worry about is learning code and IT practices to protect yourself against cyber threats. That is why OrderMyGear has hired some of the industry’s top engineering talent to build and protect the platform. While you are at work all day fulfilling orders for your customers, OrderMyGear has a quarter of their workforce dedicated directly to technology creation and security.

In addition, OrderMyGear leverages one of the world’s leading cloud computing platforms to run and secure our software- the Google Cloud Platform. That means that our customers and their end-users are benefitting from all the security and reliability Google has to offer. And even better, that benefit is humming in the background- always protecting your data, ensuring system reliability, and allowing continued growth without you even having to think about it.
