Advanced Global CDN
w/ WAF IO
Bring a full suite of edge security capabilities that ensures site integrity with a CMS-tuned web application firewall (WAF), rate limiting to guard critical assets, and engage visitors in rich content with image optimization (IO). The WAF inspects each un-cached request in excruciating detail and rapidly applies rules to keep your online presence stable.
Improved Performance & Security
As attack surfaces expand, businesses require additional security beyond the CMS to protect their web sites. Bring industry standard rules including OWASP and Drupal/WordPress protections and secure your sites with a web application firewall (WAF) - tuned for each CMS, geolocation and IP blocking.
Improve Lighthouse scores and core web vitals with improved page load times. Modern image optimization and auto WebP support to render pages at light-speed from the edge, offloading work from your servers and adds resilience to your site.

Keep the wraps on your latest product launch, while holding competitors and intellectual property thieves at bay. Easily manage IP address lists and restrict access to your development and test environments to just your team.
Gain visibility into the security of your site and take action on your site’s end-to-end traffic with access to edge logs and tools to merge and synchronize edge and server logs.
Custom Rules and Redirects
Our Advanced CDN unlocks the ability to implement custom site rules including bespoke cookie-handling, URL rate-limiting, header modifications and filters, and URL and query string sorting and filtering.
With Pantheon's Advanced Global CDN, Adaptive was able to reduce 30 discrete WAF configurations down to one. We were also able to cut our infrastructure team resourcing from four people to one, repurposing the staff into other key areas of the business.Dan Frost , Managing Director, Adaptive
