SCHAWEL+COLES Relies on Sucuri to Keep Ecommerce Clients Secure

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – 10 Aug, 2017 – SCHAWEL+COLES, an interactive ecommerce agency based in Utah and New York, has partnered with Sucuri — the website security experts who monitor and protect billions of page requests every month — to provide top-notch protection to its roster of clients.

A leader in creative online store creation and implementation, SCHAWEL+COLES had used a number of security extensions, platforms and agencies over the years. Michael Schawel, a co-founder and partner of the agency, set out to find a company that could offer end-to-end security systems for the full array of S+C’s valued clients.

“I did a considerable amount of research and talked to a number of respected companies but Sucuri stood out as the best option for the needs and budgets of the sites we build and maintain, whether they use a simple CMS like WordPress or a complex Magento installation,” Schawel said.

SCHAWEL+COLES especially appreciated the fact that Sucuri is PCI AoC Level 1-compliant and fulfills the critical firewall requirement for ecommerce sites. Since speed is crucial to any online sales environment, Sucuri’s proprietary caching keeps the data flowing while protecting the stores’ customers. Above all, conversations with co-founder and CEO Tony Perez sealed the deal because his passion for security matched S+C’s dedication for superior website design and development.

“Working with companies like SCHAWEL+COLES has been a pleasure. They get it. They know that the life of a website starts when the site goes into production, that’s not where it ends,” said Dre Armeda, Sucuri’s co-founder and Director of Business Development. “They think like we do at Sucuri in that they know website security is an important part of extending the life of a website and, ultimately, magnifying a significant return on investment. Protecting their client’s resources by adding website security services shows their care and attention to their client’s long-term success.”

Within the first few months of the formal partnership, SCHAWEL+COLES has configured all of its major clients to benefit from Sucuri’s monitoring system and is on track to implementing Sucuri’s firewall on many ecommerce sites.

“We have always been cognizant of security for our clients in the platform and on their host servers but we rely on the security experts to really keep the sites safe in the application wrapper,” Schawel said. “From blocking denial of service attacks before they even reach the server environment to the 24/7 availability of their incident response team, we know Sucuri has our clients’ backs and that helps us all sleep better at night.”


SCHAWEL+COLES is an interactive e-commerce agency located in Salt Lake City, Utah with a consulting arm in New York. Online retailing expert Michael Schawel partnered with design industry veteran Matthew Coles to form an agency that gives clients elegant design with intelligent functionality.
