“With the Next-Gen WAF, once we turn it on it starts blocking things immediately, right there at the edge. It's identifying all these malicious actors and they’re not making their way to our code at all. It's all being blocked right there at the edge. It's been shockingly easy to use, too.”

"We found some under-performant code in our backend service, and we were able to leverage Fastly to move that code to the Fastly Edge and expedite delivery of video content to customers. We hope to leverage more of that ability to move code into Fastly, whether it be through the VCL or Compute, to reduce traffic to our origins."
