Signal Sciences Partners with CenturyLink to Deliver Best-of-Breed CDN, Next-Gen WAF and DDoS Protection

I’m excited to share that today Signal Sciences launched our new partnership with CenturyLink to deliver a comprehensive application security and delivery solution.

Ensuring Fast Application Delivery and Protection

Web applications are the foundation of the modern digital user experience. Customers demand a fast response every time, everywhere. At the same time, hackers are having a field day with the poorly protected environments found in many businesses. To meet these demands, businesses must ensure fast application delivery while also ensuring protection against increasingly sophisticated threats.
