Software & Technology

To support an environment where innovation can flourish, software and technology companies need a content delivery network (CDN) infrastructure and cloud services that deliver high web performance to meet user demand for instant, dynamic web experiences. At the same time, they need the security to protect content, transactions and users – whether they're leveraging the Internet to deliver applications, distribute software electronically or via a SaaS-based model.

Engage consumers with high performing sites and applications

Consumers expect fast and engaging web and application experiences on any device. Utilizing the Akamai Intelligent Platform™, our proven content and web application delivery services can help you overcome the Internet's inherent performance and security limitations to improve the performance, scalability and reliability of your websites and web-based applications.

Distribute software efficiently and consistently

Innovative software companies focus on developing web applications, adding features and addressing minor bug fixes, but software companies don’t need the additional burden of building and managing internal infrastructure to accelerate the actual delivery of software downloads or SaaS applications. Instead, by leveraging Akamai’s cloud services, you can ensure a fast, predictable and reliable software delivery experience to anyone, anywhere – without the need for costly content delivery network (CDN) infrastructure build out.

Protect data and defend against attacks

To move faster forward you need to innovate without fear. Unfortunately, web security threats such as DDoS attacks and data breaches represent very real vulnerabilities for business web applications. Akamai's highly scalable, always-on Cloud Security Solutions defend against these threats, helping you reduce the risk of network downtime, protect revenue and maintain web application performance during cyber attacks.

"Akamai takes the burden off my chest — no matter which customer is innovating on our platform, they are getting the best of breed for speed, quality and accessibility" — Rajeev Jaswal, Director of IT, Red Hat
