Tencent Cloud has announced the launch of their new Tencent Cloud EdgeOne - a upgraded one-stop platform that integrates Tencent's experience in network performance and security with high efficiency and stability for global enterprises.
With the unprecedented surge of short-video and live steaming businesses globally in 2021, Tencent Cloud first introduced the RT-ONE™ network to build a foundation of the most comprehensive audio and video communication network in order to meet market needs.
To further enhance their corporate customers' cyber-security implementations with the use of their services, Tencent Cloud has applied its security technology to the RT-ONE™ network by introducing an upgraded, highly integrated one-stop platform. The new platform offers cutting-edge security capabilities, creating integrated services to fulfil businesses’ requirements on network speed and security features.
Leveraging Tencent Cloud's over 2,800 global acceleration nodes across more than 70 countries and regions, Tencent Cloud EdgeOne allows users to enjoy high-quality network performance without compromising their security. It also features the following advantages:
- Moves the services to the edge nodes closer to end-users and provides layer-3 (Network), layer-4 (Transport), layer-7 (Application) protection as well as acceleration services to the global market. It also highlights a unified dashboard that greatly reduces the configuration workload and saves time for customers.
- Provides a set of dedicated interconnections to accelerate traffic between Tencent Cloud EdgeOne and Origin Server. Additionally, it integrates the domain name system (DNS), which ensures stable and high-performance DNS resolution, and greatly reduces the latency for static and dynamic data.
- Integrates security features and technologies based on Tencent’s experience in security for over two decades, including but not limited to DDoS protection (Anti-DDoS), web protection (Web Application Firewall), bot management and behavior analysis (Tencent Cloud bot program management), and adaptive rate-limiting, among others. It deploys security functions on edge nodes closer to users, detecting and mitigating malicious requests before they hit application services.
Tommy Li, Vice President of Tencent Cloud, said, “Tencent Cloud EdgeOne can be summarized by an acronym using one word: ACROSS. It stands for Advanced technology; exclusive Connectivity; Real-time service; Optimization of data; Smart application; and Security protection. Enterprises that are adapting to the growing digitalization trend are experiencing common problems such as network latency, congestion, and security threats. By applying our sophisticated security technology to our RT-ONE™ network, the new platform Tencent Cloud EdgeOne provides lower latency and built-in security features with outstanding performance, giving businesses and organizations reliable services to address their concerns.”
Applications of Tencent Cloud EdgeOne in various industries
Global businesses, ranging from commerce, retail, financial service, content and news to the gaming, media, audio and video sector, can now enjoy the benefits of using Tencent Cloud EdgeOne. One of the integrated solution’s recent major clients is a popular online video-on-demand platform in China, which addressed its issues including degraded user experience, malicious SEO, bot cheating/scamming and content piracy with Tencent Cloud EdgeOne. The platform drastically reduced the video’s loading time and resource response delay.
Cyberattacks in the e-commerce industry cause business disruption and affect user experience. To avoid the risk of damage due to cyberattacks, an online e-commerce platform – which needs to carry out hundreds of billions of daily operations including user account management, activities, billing analysis and other modules – made use of Tencent Cloud EdgeOne to successfully defend against Challenge Collapsar (CC) attacks with peak traffic for over 9 million QPS (queries per second).
During a new game release by one of the world’s biggest game publishers, security and network capabilities were put to the test when it attracted more than one million users. Tencent Cloud EdgeOne adopted a distributed strategy of preloading and provided DDoS attack protection, web protection, rate limiting, and robot behavior interception capabilities, ultimately helping the new game to achieve 100% success in downloads with zero business interruption.
Eric Cheng, General Manager of Tencent Security, said, “At Tencent Cloud, we aim to make user access more efficient, and make business more secure as they go full throttle with their digitalization journey. With the launch of Tencent Cloud EdgeOne, we now have a unified, fast, reliable, and secure platform that can detect and defend against attacks earlier, mitigating malicious traffic right on edges before they reach our data center.”
Note : RT-ONE™ network, launched by Tencent Cloud in 2021, is an all-in-one service for audio and video communication network. It integrates Tencent Cloud’s real-time communication network (TRTC), instant messaging network (IM) and content distribution network (CDN) in a one-stop solution.
