Environments where web security is a necessity. It doesn't matter how big or small your business is, securing all assets is very important.
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fastly

For the use case that it was designed for, Fastly is best-in-class, and used by high-profile companies like Buzzfeed, The New York Times, and Stripe. For websites that require a highly-performant CDN layer, Fastly is a great choice. Fastly is not the best choice for very small companies and very small deployments, and it does not have the ease of implementation into large cloud PaaS vendors like AWS or Azure.

Pros

cWatch

  • Blocking malware
  • Monitoring for suspicious traffic and activity
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fastly

  • You can put your site behind Fastly and then selectively cache only some of the endpoints. You can modify the responses returned by stripping cookies or other personalization headers.
  • You can deliver images, and based on the user agent being Chrome, decide to serve, for example, a WEBP image format instead of PNG or JPG.

Cons

cWatch

  • How updates are managed
  • Support - timing and back and forth with question/answers
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fastly

  • Setup can be difficult -- but only because the service is so robust and provides so many features.
  • Minimum spend is $50/month, even if you are not using the service enough to have spent the $50.

Alternatives Considered

cWatch

All are quality products, but each have their downsides. Seems to be similar across the product line, how they manage updating the software. There always seems to be issues after updates.

Fastly

It’s the fastest and most configurable.

Return on Investment

cWatch

  • Application uptime is key. Managing risk of downtime saves much more than the cost of this platform.
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fastly

  • Fastly dramatically reduces load times for clients all over the world thanks to their global system of POPs.
  • Fastly is a cost-effective choice when a highly-performant CDN is required and makes it simple to support data that is quickly invalidated.
