Fastly’s massive globally distributed network provides rapid protection against web application vulnerabilities, DDoS, and botnet attacks. Enforce security rules at the edge with real-time insights into suspicious traffic and the ability to update your configuration in milliseconds.
Traditional CDNs send sensitive data on a separate network with less capacity than their main network, or they pass it directly to the customer’s origin. Both approaches can cause slower response times, and bypassing the CDN altogether leads to extra load on the origin server.
Fastly’s entire network supports a single, compliant platform that accommodates our customer’s compliance needs. Fastly is a certified PCI DSS Level 1 service provider. The power of our edge cloud platform and fine-grained controls allows us to cache sensitive information such as cardholder data or protected health information (PHI) while maintaining compliance. We speed up the caching and delivery of sensitive content at the edge, without splitting your traffic into separate networks to satisfy PCI DSS requirements or maintain good HIPAA security practices.
Our Assurance Services provide additional support for customers handling sensitive data which may be subject to audit requirements. We offer access to our library of third-party audit reports and certification attestations in addition to security-related policies and procedures. Executive summary reports are available for annual risk assessments, penetration tests, and network scans. Subscribers to Assurance Services can also use professional service hours to conduct direct audits of Fastly’s security and technology compliance programs.
