3 min read

SAN FRANCISCO (May 15, 2024) – Pantheon, the SaaS-based website operations (WebOps) platform for developers, designers and marketers, has introduced a series of platform enhancements designed to elevate site security, streamline performance, and unlock access to powerful personalization capabilities.  These new features allow digital teams to protect their organization’s most valuable digital asset, boost efficiency and productivity for developers, and maximize the value of first-party data to create richer user experiences.

As the volume and complexity of website security concerns continue to rise, digital teams are focused on fortifying their sites against malicious traffic and other attacks. To help organizations better safeguard their web presences, Pantheon has introduced Domain Validation. This new feature allows teams to prevent domain hijacking by confirming ownership of domains when they are added to Pantheon. This provides an added layer of protection against bad actors that may try to compromise an organization’s website portfolio. 

In addition, Pantheon continues to invest in features that enhance overall website performance and meet the evolving needs of marketing and digital teams. As part of this commitment, Pantheon has unveiled an exclusive partnership with Lytics to provide free access to the Lytics Personalization Engine for mutual customers. This partnership enables teams to create personalized web experiences in 30 days or less, without relying on third-party cookies or the traditional tag-based approach, which can undermine the end-user experience.  By leveraging Google Generative AI and first-party data, Pantheon and Lytics are radically democratizing the power of personalization for organizations of all sizes.

“Personalization has been too difficult and something only a few companies have been able to achieve. But the rules of the game are changing; a new generation of technology is rising that can empower much broader adoption of the proven value of getting the right content to the right visitor at the right time,” said James McDermott, CEO of Lytics. 

Together, Pantheon and Lytics are helping companies find their path to a first-party data strategy, navigate upcoming changes like the rollout of Privacy Sandbox, and figure out effective and ethical approaches to leveraging AI in their strategies.

Pantheon also introduced enhancements that improve the developer experience. Among these is upgrading to New Relic v10.16.0.5, an update that allows digital teams to swiftly troubleshoot issues on WordPress and Drupal instances, boosting productivity and ensuring seamless performance for site visitors. Pantheon also has launched Workflow Logs, in Early Access. The Workflow Logs feature is specifically designed to enable teams to monitor and resolve issues faster, ensuring more reliable user experiences and peak website performance.

Key Enhancements at a Glance:

  • Enhanced Security: Domain Validation ensures secure domain ownership.
  • Personalization Revolutionized: Lytics integration enables personalized user experiences, boosting engagement within a month.
  • Optimized Performance: New Relic PHP agent upgrade enhances performance and usability.
  • Enhanced Visibility: Workflow Logs facilitate rapid issue resolution, enhancing site performance.


The introduction of Domain Validation, Workflow Logs, the Lytics partnership, and New Relic upgrade underscore Pantheon's ongoing commitment to providing a best-in-class WebOps platform.
