Cache a specific URL or empty the entire cache with easy controls in Section’s portal or your CMS. Use custom Varnish Cache ban expressions and our API for even more granular, flexible control over cache purging.

By caching more images and dynamic content to serve directly from the Section Edge Compute Platform, the number of requests made to your web servers will reduce. As a result of the decreased load on your origin servers, you will experience lower hosting costs.

Achieve risk-free deployments and granular cache control.

Section is the only Edge Compute Platform that gives you the ability to build and test your full configuration locally and instantly purge stale content globally. This means you can cache more content and block more threats with less risk.

If a configuration needs fixing, changes can be quickly deployed to all of Section’s global edge network.
