How Does Enterprise Threat Protector Work?

Akamai Enterprise Threat Protector Overview

As every web request from your network begins with DNS, it’s the perfect control point to secure company-wide visibility into web requests and apply a security policy.

By simply directing your enterprise’s external recursive DNS traffic to Akamai’s Enterprise Threat Protector service, you can uniformly and immediately block employees from accessing malicious domains and services. And since this validation happens before the IP connection is made, threats are stopped earlier in the security kill chain and further away from your enterprise.
