SiteLock: Content Delivery Network CDN



What is a CDN?

A content delivery network will convey web pages and other web content to users based on their geographic locations, providing a high-speed experience. This is done by using an extensive distributed system of servers that are deployed in multiple data centers across the world. The closer the CDN server is to the user geographically, the faster the content will be delivered to the user.

What is the impact?

Today, as more aspects of daily life move online, organizations use CDN's to accelerate content delivery to their customers globally. Content delivery networks use tightly integrated overlays of web caching, server load balancing, and request routing to allow websites to deliver the best experience for visitors. This results in more than just a great user experience; it also provides decreased bounce rates, increased conversion rates, and even a boost to search engine rankings (SEO).

How does SiteLock® protect users?

SiteLock offers the TrueSpeed CDN as an additional feature coupled with the TrueShield firewall. By combining TrueSpeed with TrueShield, SiteLock can give customers the fastest and most secure experience when visiting a website.

What can customers do about it?
