If you're headed to the RSA Conference 2016, be sure to stop by the Akamai booth #4000, in Moscone North Hall. We're very excited about the recent launch of our Bot Manager web security technology and we'll show you firsthand how it works in a live demo. You'll see how Bot Manager provides, for the first time, the capability to categorize bot types and manage bot activity on your website. This is a significant advance over the simple detection and blocking techniques commonly available today. The result? You'll be in control of both the business and technological impact of bot traffic - without blindly mitigating everything and potentially escalating the bot problem.

Bot Manager: Why It Matters

Earlier today, Akamai announced the launch of a completely new product, Bot Manager. You can read more about the details in the press release and on Akamai.com. I won't bore you by repeating them, but I did want to add some color on why it matters.

As a professional marketer, it can be a little ironic how often you're frustrated when people you care about are influenced by marketing in ways that can't possibly be good for them. Everybody knows that marketers do nothing but lie all day - or "spin" as they call it. And as far as the profession goes, there's probably some truth to that. But there are plenty of marketers out there that have a good deal of integrity, and there are few things more frustrating than when people fall for marketing "spin".
Earlier this week, we published a new white paper titled, "Weighing Risk Against the Total Cost of a Data Breach," on Akamai.com. Ordinarily, a white paper wouldn't be a particularly interesting subject for a blog post, but this one explores a topic that has generated a lot of questions from our customers - how do I financially justify a Web application firewall solution to my management?

Kona + Prolexic = Akamai Web Security Solutions

It feels like it's been an eternity, but just 79 days ago, Akamai announced the acquisition of Prolexic. Now that the acquisition has officially closed, we can finally start talking more about what it all means.
