Dallas based StackPath acquires Highwinds CDN

After a nice round of funding, and several previous acquisitions (MaxCDN, Fireblade, Staminus & Cloak), StackPath has closed another deal in the content delivery network (CDN) space. With new company owned NOCs in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, the Stack Path network now has an even more robust global footprint.

StackPath welcomes the Highwinds team and we look forward to building the worlds first global security platform. – Lance Crosby, Chairman & CEO

Between Lance, Dave, and Ben alone, the next few years look pretty rosy in the DFW startup ecosystem!

Congrats to both teams.
