Member News & Highlights
Congratulations to YEC'er David Henzel, co-founder of MaxCDN, for being acquired by StackPath, along with Fireblade, Cloak and Staminus. The company’s vision is to create a platform to offer users a variety of different security services, but it says that it will start first with secure content delivery (using tech from MaxCDN, presumably). MaxCDN alone brings 16,000 customers to the new startup.
