Software and Device Manufacturers

Streamline your software and firmware distribution

Always up to date

To keep your customers happy—and stay ahead of the competition and the hackers—you’ve got to get your software and device updates out in the field. It’s useless to develop cool new products, features, security updates, enhancements and bug fixes if they don’t reach your customers. Today’s digital distribution infrastructure has to work fast and reliably. And it has to deliver thousands, if not millions, of updates on a schedule that meets your business needs.

Limelight's solution for Software and Device Manufacturers meets these challenges and offers:

Fast, Reliable Operations 24/7/365

Every second that your software is out of date is a potential interruption to your customers. This solution, built on the world-class, global Limelight Content Delivery Network (CDN), ensures that your updates happen fast and reliably, every day.

Reduced Complexity

Streamline your operations with content delivery and origin storage that fits seamlessly into your operations. Get a wealth of tools, reports and analytics at your fingertips, with experts available to help you to simplify and streamline current workflows.

Shift from CapEx to OpEx

There is no need to build out (and maintain) costly delivery infrastructure. You get everything you need to ensure secure, lightning-fast delivery of your software or device updates.

Secure Delivery
