An acquisition that aims to create a single global enterprise security platform. StackPath has just announced that it is acquiring Highwinds, a leader in CDN technologies.
Short for Content Delivery Network.
And although financial details of the buyout are not yet public, plans are already underway to integrate Highwinds services with existing StackPath offerings to create a single global platform that offers the best possible security features and performance.
This will result in one of the world’s largest global network backbones, in a market that is seeing explosive growth. The CDN market is estimated to go from $6 billion in 2016 to $23.2 billion by 2021, by some counts.
