Overview

Amazon CloudFront is a global content delivery network (CDN) service that accelerates delivery of your websites, APIs, video content or other web assets. It integrates with other Amazon Web Services products to give developers and businesses an easy way to accelerate content to end users with no minimum usage commitments. Amazon CloudFront can be used to deliver your entire website, including dynamic, static, streaming, and interactive content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for your content are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance. Amazon CloudFront is optimized to work with other Amazon Web Services, like Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Load Balancing, and Amazon Route 53. Amazon CloudFront also works seamlessly with any non-AWS origin server, which stores the original, definitive versions of your files. Like other Amazon Web Services products, there are no long-term contracts or minimum monthly usage commitments for using Amazon CloudFront – you pay only for as much or as little content as you actually deliver through the content delivery service.

StackPath is the intelligent web services platform for security, speed and scale. It is the first platform to unify enterprise security solutions by leveraging collaborative intelligence that makes each service smarter and more secure with every threat detected, in addition to vastly improving the customer experience. More than 30,000 customers, ranging from Fortune 100 companies to early stage startups already use StackPath technology. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, StackPath has offices across the U.S. and internationally.

StackPath has emerged from stealth as the Security-as-a-Service company providing a path to a more secure internet and announced a significant investment from ABRY Partners, a $4.3 billion private equity fund focused on investing in information and business service companies. The launch marks the highly anticipated next endeavor for chairman and CEO Lance Crosby—founder and former chairman and CEO of SoftLayer Technologies (acquired by IBM in 2013 and now the foundation of IBM’s Cloud Computing division).

StackPath is Crosby’s vision for a frictionless and scalable security platform specifically designed to accommodate the crushing demand of traffic on the internet, the seemingly endless new point solutions purporting to fix the latest threat, in an ever- expanding spectrum of cyber threats. The funds are being used to drive acquisition strategy, further develop the overall infrastructure and add new services, making it a holistic security platform designed to meet the needs of businesses today.
