Education Testing Service (ETS) needed to ensure their products were secure and performing well for their clients. Throughout the years, they had challenges with latency when delivering their apps globally, which caused a poor user experience. Additionally, they had challenges with security because of complexity — attacks could be direct or through their clients, which would be hard to identify and protect against. They had to be certain they were protecting their intellectual property. ETS brought in Akamai to help improve application performance and protect against security threats. They are also working with Akamai for future business needs with their move toward Zero Trust security.
