Akamai is trusted by the world’s leading retailers
With shoppers using a range of devices, browsers, and carriers, retail websites need to deliver content and web applications quickly in a variety of scenarios. The Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform enables retailers to grow revenue and conduct business globally while managing the complexity of peak online demand and mobile device detection, keeping website and application performance high and scaling instantly to meet peak seasonal web traffic.
Retail websites also need to enable seamless, secure, and frictionless customer experiences for tasks like account sign-up, login, authentication, or preference management so they don’t impede consumer activity. Akamai's Identity Cloud customer identity management platform enables you to build unified, data-rich customer profiles that deliver powerful insights to help you understand your customers and provide appealing personalized experiences — all while keeping your customers’ personal data secure and in compliance with data protection regulations.
Akamai simplifies your online business by enabling you to outsource content delivery network (CDN) infrastructure and complexity, while providing valuable real-time global Internet traffic data to inform your business decisions. And because our “always-on” web protection is delivered far from the data center at the edges of the Internet, customers, content, and transaction information is secure and protected from cyberattacks.
"Performance is one of our most important metrics. We take it for granted because with companies like Akamai, and investments we've made in infrastructure, we are really always up and a well-performing site." — Ed Smith, Chief Technology Officer, AutoTrader Group
