May 15, 2024

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2024-- Edgio is pleased to announce that Vercara, a leading provider of cloud-based services, has chosen to partner with Edgio for their expertise in securing and accelerating web applications.

Offered by Vercara under the brand name UltraEdge™, this solution will tap into Edgio’s new enterprise-level Protect and Perform Applications Bundles, a solution that combines Tier-1 web performance capabilities with an easy-to-use modern Content Delivery Network (CDN) and a full-spectrum web security suite with the comprehensive Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) – all in a single, comprehensive package that includes predictable pricing and no attack-based fees.

“Speed, security and simplicity are vital for modern web applications. That’s why we are delighted to combine our holistic web protection platform with Vercara’s best-in-class DNS and network security solutions to keep high-stakes web applications secure against web attacks,” said Richard Yew, Head of Security Products at Edgio.

By using Edgio’s Bundles, Vercara will be able to give its clients exposure to the full suite of Edgio Applications at an entry point that makes sense for them. The Bundles come in three tiers - Professional, Enterprise, and Premier - with each incremental tier offering additional features and services.

UltraEdge™ makes the online experience better by accelerating time to market and significantly enhancing application performance. It also ensures websites and apps are always accessible and secure with essential security applications layered to protect against a wide range of threats including DDoS attacks, OWASP top ten and vulnerability-based threats to applications and APIs, and fraudulent activities from malicious bots.

The partnership becomes more effective with Vercara’s UltraDNS™ and UltraDNS2™ for authoritative managed DNS, UltraDDoS Protect™ for infrastructure DDoS protection, and UltraDDR™ protective DNS for user threat prevention.
