Global Scaled Network for Fast Content Delivery

This robust network employs intelligent routing and a multi-tiered caching architecture to ensure optimal performance and secure data delivery.

Security at the Edge

Amazon CloudFront is a highly secure CDN that defends your data at both the network and application levels. All CloudFront distributions are protected by default against the most common network and transport layer DDoS attacks. Additional protection is available by integrating CloudFront with AWS Shield Advanced and AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF). CloudFront also meets the highest security compliance standards, including PCI DSS, ISO/IEC, SOC 1/2/3, FedRAMP Moderate, HIPAA, and more.

Highly Programmable and Secure Edge Computing

With AWS Lambda@Edge, CloudFront allows for programmable and secure edge CDN computing capabilities. It enables customization of application logic at the edge for operations like dynamic origin load-balancing, custom bot-management, or serverless origin creation. This lets your application logic run closer to your end users for improved responsiveness while also offering advanced security to protect your data from threats such as Spectre and Meltdown.

Deep Integration with AWS
