Forrester Wave: WAF Q2 2018

"Akamai Technologies boosts the value of its content delivery network with WAF. Akamai Technologies' WAF offering is Kona Site Defender. In recent years, the company has added more self-service features to the product, including the ability for customers to create their own custom rules, and has introduced Web Application Protector. Akamai offers very strong zero-day attack coverage and strong attack detection, with sound attack response and management UI."

Wired Magazine - Scraper Bots and the Secret Internet Arms Race

"There's really a lot of different scenarios where scraping is used on the internet for good, bad, or somewhere in the middle," Shaul says. "We have a ton of customers at Akamai who have come to us to help us manage the overall problem of robots, rather than humans, visiting their site."

World Cup 2018 streaming

"In an operating center near Kendall Square, dozens of screens showed games as they unfolded from myriad perspectives. Smaller panels flicked between camera angles: bird’s-eye views, sideline shots, close-ups of star players. But nobody seemed to care so much about the action on the field. For the engineers in Akamai Technologies’ Broadcast Operations Control Center, victory meant ensuring the uninterrupted flow of millions of data streams bringing World Cup action to computers, tablets, and phones around the globe."
