To meet the needs of businesses operating in the Internet of today and tomorrow, a CDN must satisfy four key components, working in concert:
- A highly distributed architecture, the underlying delivery platform for optimizing performance, reliability, and scale.
- A cutting-edge set of performance services able to provide the optimal experience while simplifying the complexities of delivering web and media content.
- Sophisticated security capabilities that have the scale, visibility, and expertise to protect against evolving attacks in real time.
- Support for agile business, whether the organization requires granular, self-service platform control or high-touch, high-expertise managed services.
