Client Reputation Overview
Client Reputation provides information to our customers regarding the reputation of IP addresses that interact with the Akamai Intelligent Platform. Customers use Client Reputation to better protect their applications against DDoS and application layer attacks. It does this by identifying and sharing with customers the likelihood that particular IP Addresses fall into one of the following malicious categories web attackers, Denial of Service(DoS) attackers, scanning tools and web scrapers.
Client Reputation leverages advanced algorithms to compute a risk score based on prior behavior as observed over the Akamai network. Based on this information, Akamai assigns risk scores to each IP Address and allows customers to choose which actions to take on an IP address with specific risk scores.
Information that users provide via the Client Reputation Investigation Request shall be subject to Akamai’s Privacy Statement for Akamai Sites, available at: https://www.akamai.com/us/en/privacy-policies/.
