Maintaining a high-quality playback experience for users is extremely critical whether it is for on-demand content or for large-scale live events. Origin failures occur when a server is overwhelmed with requests, due to congested networks or other unexpected events. These failures can keep origin responses from getting back to the client; hence, the need for redundant server architectures.
What is GTM Global Traffic Management, or GTM, is a DNS-based load balancing service that offers application owners a level of flexibility and insight that is unmatched by traditional on-prem solutions. Highly scalable and fault-resilient, GTM offers customers a layer of abstraction between endpoints, so traffic can be easily shifted between targets. The platform is not limited to weighted load distribution, however; GTM can execute intelligent routing decisions based on
In the second part of this blog, I covered how HTTPS web content inspection is provided in Akamai's Enterprise Threat Protector (ETP) service using ETP proxy. In this final blog post I want to provide information about how Akamai generates, distributes and controls access to private keys including TLS certificates.
In the first blog post I covered why HTTPS web traffic has grown to unprecedented levels, provided a TLS primer and looked at the basic concept of intercepting and inspecting HTTPS web traffic with Man-In-The-Middle techniques (MITM). In the second part, I will dive a bit deeper into how the TLS MITM capability has been implemented in Akamai's Enterprise Threat Protector (ETP) service.
As part of Akamai's ongoing investments in improving delivery performance, last month we completed the worldwide deployment of the Bottleneck Bandwidth and RTT (BBR) TCP congestion control algorithm across our Edge Platform. The BBR algorithm is designed to help improve the reliability and resiliency of data by optimizing the rate at which it's transmitted over last-mile networks to end users. After more than a year of extensive testing, we've rolled
In this series of blogs I'm going to talk about how the continued move towards all web traffic being encrypted has impacted enterprise security. In this blog I'm going to focus on the basics - what is encrypted web traffic and how can you proactively control this.

If you're anything like me, you have no interest in physically entering a store the day after Thanksgiving. I do, however, love to shop online in the comfort of my home. While many people start their holiday shopping on Black Friday, I go to my favorite online retailers a day or two early, add what I want to my shopping cart, and then wait for the 20% off discount to
My colleague in Spain recently wrote an informative article about DNS Protection and why it's a must-have security solution for any company. Building out on this topic, I would like to look specifically at the Education market and what the consequences can be if DNS Visibility is not taken seriously. I will also share some insight in the results that we typically see when we run proof of concepts with
