TOKYO (PRWEB) July 13, 2020
The e-commerce market has been expanding steadily in recent years and is expected to break the 10 trillion yen mark by 2021. *1
In particular, the penetration of social networking sites has increased the number of points of contact between companies and consumers, which has led to the growth of D2C brands that sell products directly to customers through their own e-commerce sites without the use of intermediaries. With a decrease in the number of stores due to the impact of the new coronavirus and the shift to online shopping, the company expects to attract more attention and see further growth in the future.
On the other hand, these e-commerce businesses handle a lot of personal information, and there is a risk of information leakage due to cyber-attacks. If a business suffers a cyber-attack, it can lead to compensation costs due to the release of personal information, damage to brand image, and lost sales opportunities.
Against this backdrop, in order to prepare for the growing threat of cyber-attacks, CSC's cloud-based WAF "Shadankun" was adopted by "ROOM", a D2C brand of accessories managed by one of Japan's largest apparel ODM manufacturers. ROOM is a D2C brand that sells "accessories that play a leading role in fashion coordination", and is managed by Third Office, an apparel OEM/ODM, brand development, and e-commerce business. Due to the combination of good design and consumer-friendly prices, the number of users in their 20s to 40s is growing rapidly. By introducing CSC's cloud-based WAF "Shadankun", Third Office will be able to protect its brand from cyber threats and provide its users with a safer and more secure service than ever before.
CSC plans to continue to help more companies mitigate their cybersecurity risks in the future.
