Secure CDN

Enabling secure web experiences across the Internet

We live in a world where providing a secure web experience is more important than ever due to the growing nature of cyberattacks and threats to websites. Not only do organizations need to focus on securing the physical network infrastructure where websites are hosted, but the connections used to deliver websites and applications to an end-user’s browser must be secured as well. To meet the demand for high-quality, secure web experiences, more online content is being enabled using SSL/TLS security standards, the building blocks of the HTTPS protocol. HTTPS-enabled websites provide authentication, encryption, and integrity protection of online communications between an end-user’s device and the origin infrastructure they are requesting content from.

Akamai’s Secure CDN offerings provide industry-leading security and reliability, a comprehensive portfolio of SSL/TLS certificate options with complete certificate lifecycle management, and the tools, systems, and expertise to meet the needs of every business.
