Delivering Secure Digital Consumer Experiences Using The Edge
2020 has seen a rapid increase in online digital business, with even traditional businesses forced to leverage digital channels to reach out to their consumers. This shift currently underway is here to stay and this will change the business and competitive landscape forever.
The customer journey is moving almost entirely to online channels and consumer facing brands will all have to compete for customer loyalty through their websites and mobile apps. There are two major factors that will increase customer loyalty to a brand in this almost exclusively digital marketplace – user experience and trust.
Customers will reward brands with their trust if they see that their accounts and personal data are protected effectively. Digital businesses will need to ensure that they invest in a digital ready security architecture that can help gain this trust from consumers and also protect revenue streams and ensure regulatory compliance. However, security cannot come at the cost of user experience. Customers will choose security as a gating factor to shortlist their favorites but will finally spend their money on and be loyal to brands that provide them the best user experience.
Delivering and security digital websites using the Edge is the most architecturally elegant way to enable powerful and secure customer journeys.
