December Security Update

We have recently successfully migrated our edge and content distribution network (CDN) to Fastly. Whilst this migration has brought performance improvements, it also brings the latest security protection for status pages, management UI and API.

Our new security features include a modern Web Application Firewall (WAF) powered by Signal Sciences. One of the core features of the WAF is the ability to analyse and detect OWASP Injection Attacks, such as SQL injection attempts and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS).

"The best thing about Fastly WAF is that it's deployed right at the edge of our network, detecting and blocking suspicious behaviour right near the source; before it gets anywhere near our core application."
