Webmaster NewsDALLAS — SoftLayer today announced new advanced features for CDNLayer, the company’s proprietary content delivery network. The features can be accessed and controlled through the SoftLayer Customer Portal and API, and include:

• Content Authentication: providing digital transaction control to restrict content access and enable e-commerce solutions.
• Cache Clearing: eliminating cached files from all CDN PoP’s to remove time sensitive material quickly and easily
