We are proud to announce that Azion was recently named both a Leader and a Fast Mover in the latest GigaOm Radar for Edge Platforms report. The recognition reflects our ongoing effort to provide developers, security specialists and infrastructure teams with a robust platform and products needed to build and run applications at the edge, closer to users.
The report recognized Azion for being the only purpose-built edge platform to meet all of GigaOm’s criteria for essential edge platform functionality. Specifically, the report highlighted our adherence to open standards allowing developers to reuse existing code; comprehensive functionality for application and content delivery; robust security measures and secure access control; and the thriving community of the Azion Marketplace.
“With a history of providing mission-critical edge compute services to large enterprises worldwide, we believe the market already recognizes the benefits of edge compute, and now it is time to give developers the right tools for them to build modern applications at the edge,” said Rafael Umann, Azion’s CEO. “This accolade validates our position in the market and our efforts to provide a general purpose platform — similar to what AWS did for the cloud — while motivating us to find new ways to help customers transition to, and thrive on, the edge.”
Developers with any level of experience can move critical workloads to Azion’s Edge Computing Platform. We received an exceptional rating for our ready-to-use network infrastructure, our ability to create new edge locations as needed and our functionality that enables customers to deploy applications on their own edge nodes — either remote-devices, on-premises or multi-cloud.
In line with this recognition, we are continually evolving our services to stay ahead of the latest trends and risks. Among other important features, we recently obtained PCI DSS 4.0 certification, a major global security benchmark showing the measures Azion takes to keep customer data safe.
