The client is a media and intelligence firm that deals with critical news, data, analysis, marking solutions, and events. It manages various e-commerce websites that offer the best selection of regional magazines, newspapers, and journals.
The company needed developers and dedicated professionals to support and maintain its mission-critical Magento websites. Moreover, low-security features and hacking and security threats affected the functionality of the websites. The company wanted to enhance the overall performance of their websites by applying adequate security measures.
The company was searching for a Magento support and enhancement services provider that could provide a dedicated team of certified Magento specialists to monitor their e-commerce websites round-the-clock, secure them by regularly installing security patches, and ensure they work smoothly without any downtime.
To help the media company effectively manage, secure, and enhance its e-commerce website portfolio, Synoptek provided dedicated Magento support and enhancement services.

Synoptek provided both automated and manual source code analysis to ensure that the code is checked for errors (such as CRSF or SQL injection) before it enters a production environment, minimizing the risk of both downtime and possible exposure to potential compromise.
We helped the media company in optimizing the database, cache, web server, and content, resulting in higher page loading speed of websites.

Its text analyzing capabilities such as automatic term stemming, spell-correction, synonym search, and multi-lingual analysis enable users to enter a free text search and quickly retrieve items of interest.
The website was integrated with PayPal to allow users to easily transfer funds in a secure manner over the internet. This provided the media company with a trusted, reliable source to process payments. Users can make online transactions by paying with a wide variety of credit and debit cards, while also having the option to pay with their PayPal balance.
