As cyberthreats loom in the background and consumer expectations for quality user experience continue to mount, Edgio is confident that its solutions are able to empower clients to meet those needs.

Edgio AppOps is the only platform that combines App Platform’s next-generation web application development tools, App Edge web CDN, and other network services including traffic splitting, and App Security protection in one easy-to-use platform. It is the most complete Jamstack platform on the market, built to run over 40 modern frameworks such as React, Angular, Vue, and Next.js.

Edgio App Security solution takes a multilayered approach to infrastructure protection and web application security to shield businesses and their reputation from the latest in application-layer attacks. Clients can leverage Edgio’s capabilities to double their development speed and run sub-second sites while reaping higher productivity, better performance, better protection, and safer deployments at lower costs.

This partnership with TechDirect comes just months after Edgio announced its rebranding from Limelight Networks, following the acquisition of Yahoo’s Edgecast Inc. back in June.
