Optimized performance for your website
Thanks to the CDN, you can benefit from private peering. They provide you with secure and highly reliable private traffic to deliver content to your customers. Optimizing the delivery of different content is also a good way to reduce the traffic generated on your infrastructure, and thus save money. Different Points of Presence (POPs) around the world, including two in France, ensure global coverage so that, wherever they are, your users benefit from the best performance.
Verizon Media has developed a caching, storage, and acceleration engine that works across its entire CDN platform to ensure the shortest possible load times for your visitors.
Edge Intelligence Framework
CDN is a good way to improve bandwidth utilization. It also reduces the load on servers, thanks to the rules you can set. With this, you can reduce the costs associated with your infrastructure.
DNS (Domain Name System) servers prevent possible server failures by redistributing traffic through load balancing. This way, your visitors are not affected and your site keeps all this performance, in all circumstances.
Verizon Media’s IP Anycast network acts in real time to provide all the necessary information about the user, including geographic location, and then detects the nearest point of presence.
Web Application Firewall
Being cloud-based, Verizon Media’s CDN is very flexible, and most importantly, scalable. It adapts to the evolution of your web applications for better results. The Web Application Firewall (WAF) probes your HTTP and HTTPS traffic to prevent any malicious overload attempts on your servers.
