As your organization increasingly engages customers, partners and employees through web and IP-based applications, web application security must be a critical priority. Attackers know that disrupting web applications can result in significant loss of revenue, reputation and customers. To prepare for the inevitable attacks, you need application security solutions that deliver fast and effective protection in order to safeguard your infrastructure and maintain web application performance and availability.
As a leading provider of enterprise cloud computing solutions that make the Internet fast, reliable and secure, Akamai provides innovative technology for web application security, as well as solutions for web acceleration and performance, mobile performance, media delivery and cloud security.
