Akamai + Public Cloud

Secure Your Hybrid Cloud Environment

Implement consistent security policy for your hybrid cloud environment on a global scale.

Maintaining a consistent security posture across your entire infrastructure requires solutions that work with you before, during, and after your cloud migration. That’s why the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform provides consistent 24/7/365 protection for your websites, applications, APIs, and users — all while allowing you to manage everything from a single pane of glass.

Secure Applications

No matter where your app is hosted, Kona Site DefenderProlexic, and Edge DNS  intelligently identify DDoS, web application, and DNS attacks in real time, keeping clean traffic flowing to your apps, data centers, and customers.

Secure and Manage APIs

Akamai’s API Security inspects JSON and XML API calls to ensure your data remains secure. API Gateway provides you distributed access, policy, and traffic controls to secure and manage your APIs at the edge.

Secure Access to Applications and Users Everywhere

Enable Zero Trust access for Enterprise Application Access and provide secure identity, single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, and monitoring capabilities for your enterprise applications across all of your cloud and on-premises locations.

Migrating to the Cloud Made Easier

Maintain control and performance through your cloud migration to minimize business impact and migrate workloads with less risk.

Maintaining key metrics like uptime and performance prove difficult when migrating workloads in the cloud. Challenges like migrating your back-end services between two places while at the same time migrating your users only add to the difficulty. No matter what needs to migrate, Akamai has solutions to help you during this critical time.

Migrate Applications and Infrastructure

Migration of data centers and apps is simple with Akamai’s DNS-based Global Traffic Management and Application Load Balancer, which provides layer 3 through 7 load balancing with cookie-based session stickiness.

Migrate Users

Edge Redirector Cloudlet provides easy management of redirects and offload of your origin. When it comes time to release your new app, site, or workload, Akamai’s Phased Release Cloudlet facilitates the fast rollout of code changes with the ability to fall back quickly.

Reduce Migration Risk and Focus on Performance

Whether it is your DNSsite delivery, or your security solution, with Akamai, you can take it with you. Keep a close eye on what you do migrate with Akamai’s mPulse Real User Monitoring, which measures real-time end-user performance before, during, and after your migration.

Manage Everything in One Place

Take charge of your environments in one place with control and visibility for web applications, cloud security, and content delivery.

With Akamai, all of your security, delivery, and performance controls are right in front of your eyes with the Akamai Control Center, or at your fingertips with Akamai for DevOps, giving you the control to use Akamai directly as code in your CI/CD pipeline.
