At CDNetworks, we incorporate the most recent and robust data security technologies and processes into our cloud-based platform and entire set of services. Customers look to us for high-performance delivery of their content in the most secure manner possible. From secure communication protocols of SSL and TLS, to PCI compliance and digital rights management, CDNetworks protects your organization’s data and that of your customers as you do business around the globe.
SSL and TLS: Simultaneously delivering security and speed
The Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) security standard has evolved into what is known today as the Transport Layer Security (TLS) standard. With full support for TLS/SSL, CDNetworks allows consumers to interact with content providers in a manner that prevents eavesdropping and tampering by outsiders.
Through a process of security key exchanges, data encryption, and message authentication between your organization’s servers and your customers, our system and services ensure that the data you share with customers moves across the Internet quickly and securely.
The delivery of your content using TLS/SSL takes place after a “handshake” agreement occurs between your organization and a customer prior to the transmission of secured content. As such, secure delivery is a multi-step process that can slow down your origin server and system. To simultaneously deliver the highest levels of performance and security, the globally distributed CDNetworks platform acts as a front-end processor to manage TLS/SSL connections and requests. By offloading this security and process burden, we free your origin to execute more high-value application processing.
Certified Compliance with the PCI Security Standard
The PCI security standard was developed by the founding payment brands of the PCI Security Standards Council, including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa International. PCI helps facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis to enhance payment account data security.
Each year at CDNetworks we renew our PCI-DSS compliance certification through a third party organization qualified to analyze, report and certify its findings. We gain certification by putting in place and strictly maintaining rigorous safety measures related to the handling of credit card data at the system, application and delivery infrastructure levels. For example, we implement and maintain system- and hardware-level policies that prohibit caching of TLS/SSL certificates or any other data that may violate PCI compliance standards and physically isolate PCI- compliant components from any unsecure network elements.
CDNetworks enjoys longstanding relationships with hundreds of eCommerce companies, because we deliver PCI-compliant services with high performance and flexibility. Our practice of not decrypting secure and sensitive data enables our customers to maintain complete control over their applications, content, and the security they put around them.
