Global CDN

Pantheon users can easily manage edge customizations for groups of websites, unlock personalization and targeted messaging at scale. With Advanced Global CDN, users can regain control over messaging and intellectual property with location-based blocking, redirection, and IP blocklisting.

Advanced Global CDN

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

Security Starter

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.

IO Starter

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.

Advanced Global CDN Features

Domain Masking

With domain masking, brands with multiple websites can combine their online experience under a single domain - to create a seamless user experience. By leveraging domain masking, businesses can combine new sites and legacy sites, without having to wait months for a traditional site relaunch.

Geolocation Detection and Blocking

Regain control of your brand and intellectual property with fast and accurate location-based blocking and redirection. Save resources, improve security, and maintain compliance with routing that takes place at the edge, before your CMS ever starts.

Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Stay on message and ensure site integrity with a custom web application firewall. Pantheon's WAF inspects each uncached request in excruciating detail and rapidly applies rules to keep your online presence stable.

IP Allow/Blocklisting

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.

Edge Logging

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.
