Mlytics, a global leader in digital content delivery and experience monitoring, has been officially recognized as a specialty-focused representative vendor in Gartner’s Market Guide for Global CDN, an annual and objective, peer-reviewed report into the state and future of the content delivery network ecosystem. After a significant revamp, the Mlytics platform provides users with a marketplace-like SaaS platform for digital experience delivery, which enables them to efficiently manage multiple CDNs, allocate resources, and monitor various projects at the same time.
Digital content and experience delivery has become an arena of increased focus for companies looking to make a mark and optimize their site’s user experience, amping up the demand for content delivery networks (CDN) and cybersecurity. Traditional CDNs solutions occasionally experience outages, which may be problematic for companies that can’t absorb the accompanying financial costs. Utilizing multiple CDNs essentially allows companies to select the one most suited for each purpose by directing traffic and workload to specific CDNs. Different CDN vendors allow users access to different networks of edge servers or Points of Presence (PoPs), different underlying network infrastructures, and different sets of specialized features and functions. Therefore, different CDN vendors may deliver different performance, security, and cost benefits too depending on traffic, workload, and location. It can, however, prove difficult to deal with multiple CDNs simultaneously, since they all operate differently.
Combining multiple trusted CDNs with sophisticated security features into a centralized marketplace and leveraging a proprietary AI load-balancing solution, Mlytics has created a one-of-a-kind, SaaS digital experience delivery platform, uniquely suited to optimize website traffic while keeping sites safe and secure. The platform allows access to multiple trusted CDNs such as Akamai, Cloudflare, Stackpath, or Fastly in a few clicks, enabling users to fully customize the solution to their business needs with its Multi-CDN marketplace. Setting itself apart from traditional CDN solution providers, the Mlytics system collects global network performance data and translates it into traffic routing decisions, tapping an AI solution to automatically choose the most effective CDN that a client installed. During outages or downtimes, the system automatically identifies and routes users to the best-performing CDN to deliver the optimal experience and avoid disruption. Traffic going through the system is protected from a range of malicious activities by the platform’s Cloud WAF, API protection, CDN/origin DDoS protection, and bot management and access control tools. Once set up, clients can focus on other projects as the system seamlessly runs its course.
“We’ve been building towards a new era of content delivery management through simplifying the management of multiple CDNs and their inherent security features,” says Tars Geerts, Demand Generation Manager at Mlytics. “So we’re really excited to roll out a newly revamped platform with a completely new navigation system and faster accessibility to the digital experience delivery solution many organizations badly need.”
