When you reset your cache or publish new content, all CDN edge servers send requests to your origin. This can quickly overload it. Origin Shield stops this.
Efficient Origin Requests
Once enabled, multiple edge requests for uncached content are sent to Origin Shield. It then filters these multiple requests into a single origin request.
Better Purging & Provisioning
Whether you provision fresh content regularly or have large files that require the occasional cache purge, Origin Shield handles request spikes gracefully.
