Rapid delivery is key to providing broadcast-quality video experiences on any device, anywhere. Fastly’s edge cloud platform is built for performance: with a multi-terabit-per-second capacity, we scale to meet the most demanding video and streaming needs.
Protecting your content from unauthorized users is critical. Fastly supports HTTP streaming video over Transport Layer Security (TLS). Edge authorization tokens are generated within your application and users are authenticated at the edge, removing the burden on your servers. You can use content targeting to identify user locations and prevent content delivery in unauthorized regions or restrict certain devices from playing videos.
Fastly also protects your video and streaming content from disruptive DDoS attacks. Our powerful globally distributed network blocks both volumetric and complex application layer attacks at the network edge.
For customers who need to support large spikes in video or live streaming traffic, Origin Connect offers dedicated bandwidth. We provide one or more Private Network Connections (PNI), each with a 25 or 100 gigabit per second connection between your origin and Fastly Origin Shield POPs. Traffic is sent across these secure private paths rather than going over the public internet, effectively reducing latency.
Fastly lets you interact with and analyze your video and streaming services in real time. You can deploy your own configurations through our web interface or automate changes via our API. Edge Dictionaries allow you to define and modify business logic — like packaging settings for different devices, users, or networks — instantly at the edge of our network, without deploying a new configuration. And our real-time logs give you quick visibility into how users are consuming your video so you can proactively fine tune your settings.
