Case Study | CaterXpress dyn.com @dyn page 2 After running a proof-of-concept with the Oracle Dyn technical account management team, Super found the solution his company needed. "The Oracle Dyn WAF fit the bill perfectly," he said. "It solved the problem of SSL certificates easily, it had a software [application programming interface] we could use to control the certificates ourselves, and the pricing was fantastic. It was a no-brainer." All about CaterXpress CaterXpress launched in 2007 with a goal to become the world leader in catering technology. Fast-forward to today and the company has made great strides toward achieving that goal. Caterers around the world use FoodStorm to process more than $300 million in orders annually—and that number is rising fast. "We've got some very high volumes going through our software at the moment," Super said. "If you're a catering company using FoodStorm, it really is the cornerstone of your operation. It's a mission-critical system." Why Oracle Dyn? The CaterXpress team began using Oracle Dyn Managed DNS soon after the company launched. Super reports that the DNS offering is easy to use and helps the company manage many customer domain names. "The technical features that it had were better than the competitors," he said. "For example, Oracle Dyn DNS allowed us to point multiple domain names to one server automatically, which was something that a lot of other DNS providers didn't do." As time went on and CaterXpress began to experience explosive growth, Super's team wanted to do more to protect the cloud-based FoodStorm web application from cyberthreats like distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, SQL injections, and cross-site scripting. That's when Super first learned about the Oracle Dyn WAF. "The Oracle Dyn team was very proactive in scheduling meetings and walking us through the implementation process and explaining everything," he said. "They were just a phone call away. They were great." "The Oracle Dyn team was very proactive in scheduling meetings and walking us through the implementation process and explaining everything. They were just a phone call away." – Anthony Super Director and Co-Founder, CaterXpress
