Cybersecurity Mentorship Experiences: My 4 Insights

Through the Akamai-Microsoft cybersecurity accelerator program, I had the privilege to act as a mentor to six cyber-security startups. The accelerator ran through Fall 2014, now coming to an end with the demo-day planned for January 21st, 2015.
This week Orange announced that Dailymotion, one of the biggest video platforms in the world, has chosen Orange Business Services to help optimize live streaming of sports and gaming events for its partners.

Response to our recently announced product with Cisco has been tremendous thus far. I have met with many customers regarding Akamai Connect, and our team literally gave hundreds of demos at this year's Cisco Live event in San Francisco. It is great to see the high level of interest in Cisco's IWAN with Akamai Connect as companies look to evolve their networks to a hybrid WAN architecture.

Cisco and Akamai Announce Solution to Enable Digital Experiences and Relieve Network Congestion

Today marks another important milestone in Akamai's relationship with Cisco. Together we are enabling IT to respond to the business challenges to support the huge traffic increases brought on by the digital era.  Specifically, the IT challenge of supporting business leaders who are innovating at the branch office. Consider a retailer engaging customers with mobile assisted selling apps, digital displays and customer wi-fi. Think about a banker building out virtual branches to promote new financial services. Contemplate educators delivering a rich media curriculum to thousands of students. Reflect on business leaders adopting myriad digital experiences to improve productivity and drive revenues. In all these situations, organizations across the board are adopting new applications and services that require significantly more bandwidth than has been required in these "branch" locations. As important, these applications are no longer being hosted solely within the corporate data center. They are delivered from private or public cloud infrastructures, or directly from the Internet as a SaaS application.
