Publish with an edge

Consistently fast, engaging experiences

Create better visitor experiences by instantly and programmatically caching content at the edge. Enhance performance and scalability by serving dynamic content — from the latest weather and sports scores to late-breaking news. Increase reader engagement with tailored content based on variables such as your reader’s location, device, and more.

Keep it Secure

Confidently mitigate online attacks with built-in security

Get the protection and control you need without sacrificing performance. Our Next-Gen WAF lets you implement advanced bot protection at the edge to eliminate excessive abuse and misuse of application resources that power fraudulent activity, such as account takeover or application DDoS. Effectively detect and block malicious traffic without rules optimization.

"We couldn't gain the confidence of our editorial team to place a CDN in front of our website unless we could clear content from the cache instantly. If breaking news happens and it isn't on our site within seconds, visitors will go elsewhere. With Fastly, updates are reflected on our site pages within milliseconds and we've seen a 20% improvement in time to first byte around the world."

Patterns for authentication at the edge

Identity is a boring, but necessary element of most website builds. Validating a user’s identity and access rights is something that is in the critical performance path, required site-wide, and often implemented in a bespoke way. Moving it to the edge improves performance, and can simplify your application architecture.
