The combination of Limelight’s edge-enabled web applications and content delivery solutions with Edgecast’s edge security, content delivery, and video services make this an ideal integration. Once the acquisition is complete, we will have a global network capacity of more than 200 Tbps and more than 300 PoPs coupled with natively integrated cloud security, edge video platform, and web applications. Edgecast’s multi-layered cloud security platform will also significantly enhance the scale of Limelight’s web applications division, creating the most complete web applications solution on the market
Together we will begin a new journey as Edgio, a leading-edge solutions provider of choice for outcome-oriented businesses and clients looking to deliver fast, secure, and frictionless digital experiences to end users.
