DigiCert has announced a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Atlanta, making DigiCert DNS Trust Manager among the fastest DNS providers in North America and worldwide.
This addition marks the 25th location for DigiCert DNS Trust Manager and significantly benefits Georgia and the South Eastern region of the US by reducing latency and enhancing network performance.
This new PoP is anticipated to become the primary connectivity point for the South Eastern region, complementing existing major traffic hubs in Ashburn, Virginia, and Miami. By leveraging this strategic location, it aims to cut latency in the area by an average of 12ms, leading to improved browsing experiences, faster data transfers and enhanced digital experiences.
“We are thrilled to realise the performance gain from expanding our network infrastructure in Atlanta,” says Steven Job, Senior Vice President of DigiCert DNS Trust Manager. “This PoP will handle significantly more traffic and improve connectivity to the region.”
