What is Fastly?

By bringing fast, secure, and scalable online experiences, Fastly helps the world’s most popular digital businesses keep up with their customers’ expectations. Fastly’s edge cloud platform is trusted by businesses to accelerate technical innovation, mitigate evolving threats, and scale on demand. Fastly is the company behind Airbnb, GitHub, Alaska Airlines, Pinterest, Vimeo, The Guardian, The New York Times, and Ticketmaster. It’s past time for your CDN to step up its game. If you need reliability, speed, and the ability to customize delivery, Fastly’s Deliver@Edge solution, which includes real-time observability, baked-in security, and programmatic control, can help you deliver the dynamic experiences today’s users expect. Our global network is more secure and scalable. To help you move data and applications closer to users and deliver up-to-date content quickly, we use strategically distributed, high-performance POPs. Our network is designed to hold the most demanding streaming requirements. All Deliver@Edge products are API-first and integrate seamlessly with your technology stack. We have built-in support for common CI/CD toolchains, config management tools, and code repository systems. Control how your content is cached down to the last detail. Purge stale content, reset Times to Live (TTL), and enable new features with a single API call. Our DDoS, next-generation WAF and TLS solutions give businesses protection and control without sacrificing performance or speed. We’ve integrated security and performance into the fabric of our platform, giving developers and security operations teams a fast, secure environment to create, build, and run modern applications. With real-time logs and complete control over your configuration, you can quickly identify problems and make configuration and security rule changes. We said seconds, not minutes.

Traditional web application firewalls use regular expression pattern matching rules (WAF). They’re challenging to manage, and they necessitate constant rule tuning to prevent false positives from blocking legitimate traffic. Fastly’s next-generation WAF (formerly Signal Sciences) uses a fundamentally different approach to detect and block malicious traffic without the need for rules tuning. Our web app and API protection solution is easy to set up and provides visibility across all of your apps’ locations. Because our protection is adequate, nearly all customers use it in full blocking mode. It’s simple to set up and integrate your team’s existing DevOps and security tools. Get protection against injection-style web attacks that goes beyond the OWASP Top 10 list. All in one solution, protect against advanced threats such as account takeover (ATO) via credential stuffing, malicious bots, API abuse, and more. Our WAF installs via an agent-module software pair or Cloud WAF, which does not require any software installation. Our adaptable architecture ensures that you’re protected regardless of where you’re running your technology, whether in the cloud (including containers), on-premises, or in a hybrid environment. Unlike traditional web application firewalls, our next-generation WAF can be up and running in hours, not weeks or months, and you won’t have to pay extra for managed services or ongoing maintenance. Layer 7 visibility is provided by reporting and alerting feedback loops across your entire app and API footprint. Teams can make decisions based on the same baseline of security data provided by alerts, our API, or our management console, thanks to integrations with DevOps and security toolchains.

Fastly’s Compute@Edge service enables you to create large-scale, globally distributed applications and runs code at the edge without having to worry about the infrastructure. With our secure, performant, and scalable approach to serverless computing, you can deploy and run complex logic for any application or backend service. Compute@Edge provides a 100x faster code execution startup time than other serverless solutions, at 35.4 microseconds. Run your code on hundreds of servers worldwide at the same time. There are no roundtrip delays or cold starts — just fast, always-on computing. The goal of digital transformation is to boost end-user experiences. Use a robust local development and debugging environment to write, deploy, and test your code on the Fastly edge. From there, we take care of everything required to scale it instantly and globally, as close as possible to your end-users. Our isolation technology, which operates in microseconds, protects you from side-channel attacks and reduces resource contention while providing reliable performance. We can reduce the attack surface area by creating and destroying a sandbox for each request that comes through the platform. This limits the blast radius of buggy code or configuration mistakes from other users. It’s essential to have developer experience and use intuitive toolsets. You can program in familiar languages like Rust and JavaScript, port your code across cloud providers, and get a real-time view of your services with Compute@Edge. Compute@Edge also integrates seamlessly with your existing tech stack.
