Specialist digital agency relies on secure hosting from Rackspace
Sequence is a very well known and respected specialist digital agency based in Cardiff and London. Their services encompass strategic, creative and technical development for every aspect of digital media and include full design and creative development from a 55-strong team of specialists, as well as social media marketing and monitoring and Pay-Per-Click services.
Secure site development
Sequence’s clients are many and varied and include a number of highly secure online developments for Government and financial bodies as well new generation creative websites sites for the Welsh National Opera www.wno.org.uk and Brains Brewery- www.sabrain.com.
One of the company’s latest and most prominent online developments was the Contracts Finder portal for SERCO, who provide Business Link (www.businesslink.gov.uk), in which the new site is housed. The Contracts Finder site provides information on all new Government procurement opportunities, tender documents and contracts for central government that are valued at over £10,000. The website, which was designed and built by Sequence, is targeted at businesses, government buyers and the public. This project forms a central part of the government’s new commitment to total transparency, and has been created to make government procurement “more welcoming” and inclusive for small and medium-sized enterprises.
PCI compliance critical for secure transaction sites
Andrew Phillips is a Senior Account Director at Sequence, “We have a number of clients that require very high security applications built into their websites. When this is the case we turn to Rackspace Hosting for the requisite managed hosting services, as they offer full PCI compliance and levels of guaranteed uptime, support and security that simply cannot be matched by other providers.” Andrew said, “We are also a recognised Rackspace Partner and where possible we incorporate our close link with Rackspace into new business tender documents where security and compliance issues are a major consideration. Having the recognition of the Rackspace brand is a definite sales benefit to us and we make the most of the association with the company when presenting our concepts.”
A host that understands business
Andrew went on to say, “It is very important to have a hosting provider that understands your business and provides the essential levels of support and guaranteed network uptime needed by those clients who rely solely on the web for the success of their business. We know that we can rely on Rackspace to deliver this.”
Andrew summarised, “I would not hesitate to recommend Rackspace to other agencies. It removes the problems of setting up and managing PCI approved secure hosting and they provide excellent support, 24-hours a day every day of the year.”
Outsourcing frees up resources
David Kelly is the Senior Vice President for Rackspace International, “We are finding that more and more digital development and creative agencies are looking to outsource their key hosting needs, either for themselves or on behalf of their clients. This may be for high security reasons or simply because they no longer wish to take on the responsibility of 24-hour web support for 365 days a year! We have built a very strong reputation for quality of service and excellence of delivery, and our unique partnership programme has attracted many agencies and developers to join with us and realise the full benefits of becoming a registered Rackspace Partner.” For further details please visit the Rackspace website or contact the Rackspace Partner Team for further information on firstname.lastname@example.org.
