Stryve New Website Partners !

‪Carlow GAA is delighted to announce our new website partnership with local cyber security company STRYVE who provide Fortune 500 technology to SME’s. ‬

‪STRYVE, based in the Wexford Rd. Business Park with Burren Rangers HC very own Andrew Tobin at the helm, have provided a much needed upgrade to our site‬ including a major facelift & increased usability features.

The Secure Web Development Challenge

Throughout 2019, Carlow GAA experienced several issues with its website. There was a change in the backend integration of the website with the national database of GAA fixtures and results. This caused a technical issue that resulted in the public not having real-time access to fixtures, results or tables for competitions. Like many non-profit organisations, Carlow GAA’s website also did not have the latest cybersecurity measures in place which left it vulnerable to attack.

The Secure Web Development Solution

Stryve agreed to take over the support and hosting of Carlow GAA’s website ensuring the county had a secure website. They moved the site into Stryve’s secure hosting environment and locked down the code. This alleviated several of the security threats the website had faced and ensured that the site could not be compromised. Stryve then restored the link between Carlow GAA and the national database of GAA fixtures and results allowing the public to regain access to essential information.

Stryve have also come on board as our U.20 Championship sponsors which despite the Covid19 break we hope to have up & running as soon as time allows.
