We continuously work on making the edge more secure, and develop features you can leverage to protect your applications. However, in order for you to benefit from these investments, there are steps you should take at the crucial stage where traffic is handed off to the CDN. In this post, Director of Security Engineering Maarten Van Horenbeeck discusses how (and why) you can protect traffic on its way to the CDN.
In this post, Tyler McMullen will explore “the future of the edge,” or the next logical step in how we streamline online experiences. In order to keep up with the direction things are headed, we need to combine logic and data at the edge. Logic without data, without state, is insufficient.
Fastly has historically supported many open source projects. We’re happy to announce that Fastly now provides sponsored Content Delivery for the Tor Project.

In “Lean Threat Intelligence Part 2: The foundation,” we explained how we built our log management system, Graylog, using Chef. Next, we’ll cover how we created a message pipeline that allows us to route messages to different endpoints for analysis or enrichment.
We know our customers need complete visibility into what’s happening with their applications; with Fastly, we strive to give you instant feedback at the edge, allowing you to innovate and iterate in real time. With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce the next generation of the Fastly control panel.
