The Internet was not designed for the rigors of business that we experience today. Anticipating the traffic, innovation and demand to come, Akamai created a business-ready platform. We have transformed the Internet into a fast, reliable and secure place to deliver content and applications. At the core of Akamai’s platform is intelligent software… patented algorithms that help companies overcome unreliable networks, congestion, inefficient protocols and malicious attacks. It maps users to the most optimal servers, routes traffic along the fastest paths, shapes content for the most efficient delivery, and mitigates cyber threats. This intelligent software ties everything together in a single, united platform delivering high levels of availability, on-demand scale and around-the-clock insight and control.
The Akamai Platform stands between your infrastructure and the public Internet’s great unknown, helping to protect your content, applications and data centers from cyber threats. Because we deliver 15-30% of the world’s web interactions every day we see more malicious requests than anyone. We continually analyze data from hundreds of millions of unique IP addresses, and our distributed architecture absorbs, deflects and filters malicious requests close to the attack source.
Akamai also leads the way in helping even highly-regulated industries to leverage CDN and Cloud Security Services through certifications and compliance management frameworks including Level1 PCI and FedRamp Compliance, ISO20xxx, HIPAA, FISMA, BITS and others.
Akamai continues to grow our Intelligent Platform to keep pace with the rapidly increasing volume of Internet traffic and devices, the rich nature of content, the complexity of interactions, and the evolving landscape of cyber threats. We have flawlessly delivered many of the world’s largest live and on-demand media events of the past decade, handled peak online shopping seasons year after year, and thwarted the largest DDoS attacks. We manage the complexities that come with unpredictable audience sizes and deliver great experiences wherever and whenever customers demand them, so companies don’t have to provision for them on their own.
We’ve made it easy to customize and control the content and applications you deliver on Akamai’s Intelligent Platform. Our LUNA Control Center provides unique views and comprehensive reporting of all your web properties with a toolset that helps you quickly onboard, configure and customize your own capabilities. The tools are intuitive and simple, without sacrificing any of the rich features built within the Akamai Platform that can optimize even the most complicated web operations.
All data and controls within the LUNA Control Center can be accessed through a set of standard APIs so you can further develop and operate your business with the Akamai Platform in mind. Akamai’s Open Platform Initiative facilitates innovation and community collaboration.
