WEB APP PROTECTION
Web App Security From Origin to Edge
Protect web services while accelerating content delivery, with built-in access controls, request blocking, TLS termination and more.
Security at Speed
Protect the User Experience
Web and video services need speed and scale to ensure reliable Quality of Experience, but they face security threats like cache poisoning, SQL injection, malicious API requests and DDoS attacks (to name a few).
Many security tools add friction or create bottlenecks, especially if they require additional network hops or external services.
Varnish Enterprise Security Suite
Frictionless Security for HTTP Delivery
Varnish Enterprise caching software builds in a comprehensive security platform, ready to protect customer and business data while accelerating content delivery.
It’s privately deployable, so you can control the content delivery pipeline on dedicated infrastructure, in restricted geographies, all the way from origin to edge.
Combine speed and security to make sure user data and critical infrastructure is protected from traffic, bad actors and malicious requests.
An integrated security suite with holistic threat protection. Block bad traffic, bots, API abuse, SQL-injection, cache poisoning and more.
Activate the full set of security controls across your network without hurting web performance.
Secure User Data
Encrypt all the way to the edge, block malicious and accidental DDoS attacks and control access with authentication and identity verification.
Granular, real-time and historical metrics deliver actionable insights and faster solutions. 100+ lines of logs for every transaction and 130+ built-in metrics.
Bot Detection and Rate Limiting
Block Bad Traffic
Security tooling in Varnish is seamless. The adaptability of VMODs mean complete control over traffic, without adding roadblocks to legitimate requests.
Resolve IP domain names at the edge with Forward Confirmed reverse DNS to verify legitimate web crawlers and block bad actors automatically.
Rate limit and block client requests according to location, IP range and more, for DDoS mitigation and enhanced stability.
TLS Termination and User Authentication
Varnish Enterprise tightly integrates client-side and backend TLS with incredibly performant TLS protocol negotiation.
Mutual TLS brings security for server-to-server authentication across intranets and extranets too.
JWT and HMAC verification makes it easy to prevent unauthorized activity and validate user and server identities. Varnish can cache and invalidate authenticated requests shared across many different users, so authorization does not harm performance.

Data Privacy and Sovereignty
Legislation and regulation can mean commercial CDNs cannot guarantee data privacy or sovereignty. Varnish Enterprise software:
- Deploys to dedicated, private servers in locations of choice, plus EU-based cloud infrastructure
- Restricts access via IP and location
- Ensures data stays in specific territories on infrastructure you control
Varnish enables Future Publishing to achieve a robust and reliable caching layer for highly available content delivery across its media properties
